Injury report

The Ducks are without Corey Perry (suspension), Nick Bonino (lower body), Kyle Palmieri (upper body) and Brad Staubitz (face) and Fasth (upper body) missed the game in Minnesota.

Dallas is again expected to be without forward Jamie Benn (wrist); he’s doubtful. Captain Brenden Morrow (groin) has missed two games; Coach Glen Gulutzan said Wednesday he’ll decide on Morrow’s availability after the morning skate. Defenseman Aaron Rome (foot) is still sidelined.

The Match-Up

It’s the second of five meetings. The Stars are one of three teams to beat the Ducks in regulation; they won 3-1 at home on Feb. 8. Dallas has won the past four games between the teams and seven of the past eight. However, Anaheim continues to find ways to win. The Ducks were outshot 22-7 through the first two periods in St. Paul, but outshot the Wild 14-9 in the third and got goals from Maroon and defenseman Sbisa with a 2-1 win.

“You have to kind of be honest with yourself — I don’t think we played to the standard that we have to play on a nightly basis,” Sbisa said. “We weren’t happy with the way things were going, but we reacted to it.”

Dallas continues to struggle at home. Tuesday’s loss to the Predators, 4-0 dropped the Stars to 5-5-1 at home; they’ve dropped four of their past six in their own building. Dallas has fallen to 11th in the West, though the Stars are two points out of the last Stanley Cup Playoff spot.
