SAN JOSE: LAST SEASON: 46-30-6, 98 points. Third place Pacific Division. Lost to Pittsburgh in Stanley Cup Final.
COACH: Peter DeBoer. (second season, ninth NHL season).
ADDED: F Mikkel Boedker, D David Schlemko, F Marcus Sorensen.
LOST: D Roman Polak, F Nick Spaling, F Dainius Zubrus, G James Reimer.
PLAYER TO WATCH: F Tomas Hertl. Hertl's knee injury in Game 2 of the final against the Penguins played a role in San Jose falling two games short of a championship. The question heading into this season is whether Hertl will be able to carry the third line as a third-line center, which would provide the depth that would make the Sharks a difficult matchup against even the top teams. Otherwise, he can go back to his role as a productive wing alongside Joe Thornton and Joe Pavelski.
OUTLOOK: A year after missing the playoffs for the first time since 2003, the Sharks had their best postseason run ever, making it all the way to the final before losing in six games to Pittsburgh. All the key pieces from that team are back along with the additions of Boedker's speed, Schlemko's improved puck-moving ability compared to Polak and several rookies like Nikolay Goldobin, Kevin Labanc or Timo Meier who could provide a boost. If the new additions provide the spark and the older core maintains its high level from the postseason, the Sharks should be able to contend for a title again.
DALLAS: LAST SEASON: 50-23-9, 109 points. First in Western Conference and Central Division. Lost to St. Louis in West semifinals.
COACH: Lindy Ruff (fourth season, 19th NHL season).
ADDED: D Dan Hamhuis, W Jiri Hudler.
LOST: D Alex Goligoski, D Jason Demers, C Vernon Fiddler, W Valeri Nichushkin, F Colton Sceviour.
PLAYER TO WATCH: Tyler Seguin has been out in preseason with hairline fracture in his heel after missing all but one playoff game last season because of a cut Achilles tendon. He is expected to be ready for the season opener on Oct. 13. Healthy Seguin gives Dallas one of the best scoring tandems in the NHL along with fellow All-Star forward Jamie Benn.
OUTLOOK: If several young defensemen are consistent enough, including budding stars John Klingberg and Stephen Johns, the Stars have the pieces to make a run at their first Stanley Cup title since 1999. Dallas also will have to find a way to make a two-goalie system work with Kari Lehtonen and Antti Niemi. It was effective at times last season but ultimately failed when Lehtonen gave up five goals in the first two periods of a Game 7 loss to the Blues.
Sharks start four-game trip in Dallas

DALLAS -- At one time, the San Jose Sharks and Dallas Stars were Pacific Division rivals. However, that's about the only similarity they share heading into their game Monday night at American Airlines Center.

San Jose (42-22-7) has dropped two straight games, including a 2-1 loss to Anaheim at home on Saturday, but the Sharks remain in the top spot in the Pacific and the 2016 Stanley Cup finalists look like a serious Western Conference contender again this season. They open a four-game road trip in Dallas.

The Stars (28-33-10) sit in sixth place in the Central Division and are all but out of the playoff race.

The Sharks, who are 6-4-0 over their past 10 games, may be without forward Jannik Hansen, who was acquired from Vancouver prior to the NHL trade deadline. Hansen took a stick to the head against the Ducks.

San Jose coach Peter DeBoer didn't have an update on Hansen's status after Saturday's loss, and the Sharks were off Sunday and traveled to Dallas.

However, on Sunday afternoon, San Jose called up two forwards, Timo Meier and Danny O'Regan, from its American Hockey League affiliate, the San Jose Barracuda.

Meier, the ninth pick in the 2015 draft, has five points in 26 AHL games this season while O'Regan, who made his NHL debut in November, currently leads the Barracuda with 52 points in 54 games.

This road trip is a bit of an anomaly for the Sharks. After starting the trip Monday in Dallas, San Jose will then play the first of two back-to-backs with a Tuesday game in Minnesota.

The Sharks will then face the Stars again in Dallas on Friday, the front end of a back-to-back that will see San Jose play again in Nashville on Saturday to complete the trip.

"It's never easy to go on the road," San Jose center Joe Pavelski said after Saturday's loss. "We've had a nice little homestand here. We've been very good on the road."

Good might be an understatement since the Sharks are 19-12-3 away from the Bay Arena. San Jose is also 9-7-0 against the Central Division, with all three foes during this trip from the Central.

"Yeah, but we've never shied away from tough rinks or tough trips. I think we'll be ready," DeBoer said of the road trip.

Dallas lost 3-1 at Calgary on Friday, finishing its four-game road trip at 1-3-0 and putting its minuscule playoff hopes on life support.

With 11 games to play, the Stars currently sit 15 points behind Nashville for the second West wild-card spot.

Injuries have been a big story for Dallas all season as only two players, Tyler Seguin, Dallas' lone All-Star, and rookie Devin Shore, have skated in every game thus far.

And the Stars added another injury to their expansive list when veteran center Jason Spezza left practice Sunday with what coach Lindy Ruff called back spasms.

Ruff termed the chances of Spezza playing Monday as "doubtful."

Dallas could get a boost from the potential return of captain Jamie Benn against the Sharks. Benn missed Friday's loss in Calgary after taking a stick to the eye in Thursday's win in Vancouver.

Benn practiced Sunday without a face shield and could be ready.

"Based on practice today (Sunday), I'd probably put him higher than that (50-50 odds) on playing, but we'll see what tomorrow brings," Ruff said after practice.

Dallas is 18-12-6 at home and 10-6-2 against the Pacific, and at least technically, the Stars are still not officially eliminated from postseason contention, but that day could come at some point this week.

And even with this season being a huge disappointment, especially after last season Dallas led the NHL in goals and finished the regular season with the most points in the West, Ruff hasn't stopped teaching, especially to his younger players.

"We want to continue to use this time to get better. This isn't just to go through the motion, it's an opportunity to get better," Ruff said.
