Here's what to look for during tonight's tilt:
TYLER SEGUIN'S HOUSE OF PAYNE
Forward Tyler Seguin matched a career-high with five points (3-2=5) on Thursday night against the Canucks, including his third hat trick of the season. Seguin becomes the first Stars player to record three hat tricks in a season since Bill Guerin did so during the 2003-04 campaign. This marks the Brampton, Ont. native's fifth game this season in which he has recorded four-or-more points, the most among all NHL players.
BENN THERE, DONE THAT
Stars captain Jamie Benn scored a goal and added two assists to finish with three points (1-2=3) on Thursday night. The Stars are now 9-2-1 in the 11 games that Benn has registered multiple points, and are 6-0-0 when he tallies three-or-more points. With the points, the captain has earned nine points (2-7=9) in the last five games, and currently ranks second on the team and 18th in the NHL with 59 points (24-35=59), while he's tied for 18th and shares the club lead with 35 assists this season.
