INJURY TO WATCH

Dallas goalie Kari Lehtonen (neck) is probable to play tonight. Defenseman Stephen Johns (brain injury) is out indefinitely. Goalie Ben Bishop (knee) and center Martin Hanzal (back) are out for the season. For Anaheim, right winger Troy Terry (undisclosed) and goaltender John Gibson (upper body) are questionable. Defenseman Cam Fowler (shoulder) is out until mid-May. Right winger Patrick Eaves (illness) is out indefinitely. Defenseman Kevin Bieksa (hand) is out until late April.

BETTING STRATEGY

The two meetings have been split this season, with the Ducks winning 2-0 in a home game over the Stars on Feb. 21. Anaheim is 25-10-3-2 at home this season, while Dallas is only 15-19-2-3 on the road. The Ducks have won six in a row at home and while Dallas prevailed 4-2 at San Jose three days ago, don't expect its road luck to continue for another game.
