KEY GAME INFORMATION
DALLAS: LAST SEASON: 42-32-8. Sixth in Central Division.
COACH: Jim Montgomery (first season, first NHL season).
ADDED: LW Blake Comeau, RW Valeri Nichushkin, D Roman Polak, G Anton Khudobin.
LOST: F Antoine Roussel, F Curtis McKenzie. D Dan Hamhuis, D Greg Pateryn, G Kari Lehtonen.
PLAYER TO WATCH: Five-time All-Star center Tyler Seguin won't have to answer questions about his future in Dallas. The 26-year-old Seguin, who could have been an unrestricted free agent after this season, should be free from distractions after signing a nearly $80 million, eight-year contract extension through the 2026-27 season. Seguin had a career-high 40 goals last season.
OUTLOOK: Montgomery makes the jump from the college ranks (University of Denver), where he had an offensive team. As a first-time NHL
COACH, he has the prolific scoring duo of Seguin and 29-year-old team captain Jamie Benn (signed through 2024-25) on a line with Alexander Radulov. But the Stars have to get more consistent scoring outside of that top line. On defense, John Klingberg led all NHL defensemen with 59 assists last season, and Marc Methot is healthy after being limited 36 games in his Dallas debut. Only a late slide kept the Stars out of the playoffs last season ' they missed the postseason for the eighth time in 10 seasons.
PITTSBURGH: LAST SEASON: 47-29-6, 100 points. Finished second in Metropolitan Division.
LOST to Washington Capitals in Eastern Conference semifinals.
COACH: Mike Sullivan (fourth season, sixth NHL season).
ADDED: D Jack Johnson, C Matt Cullen.
LOST: F Conor Sheary, F Tom Kuhnhackl, D Matt Hunwick, F Carter Rowney.
PLAYER TO WATCH: G Matt Murray. The 24-year-old endured an up and down first season as the franchise's full-time starter. His goals against average (2.92) and save percentage (.907) all took significant dips off his previous two seasons. Having spotty play in front of him didn't help. If Murray can return to the steady form that helped the Penguins to consecutive Stanley Cups in 2016 and 2017, Pittsburgh will be a tough out in the postseason.
OUTLOOK: Pittsburgh's bid to become the first team in more than 30 years to "threepeat" ended with a loss to Washington. They opted to tinker than totally retool in the offseason, splurging on Johnson and bringing back the 42-year-old Cullen to provide depth down the middle. With Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin around, the Penguins will always be in the mix. But with the core of Crosby, Malkin, Phil Kessel and Kris Letang all in their early 30s, staying fresh for eight months will be a challenge.
PREVIEW
Struggling Pens may get some help vs. Stars

The struggling Pittsburgh Penguins might be getting some help Wednesday when they host the Dallas Stars at PPG Paints Arena, while the Stars will be dealing with a key absence.

Pittsburgh center and team captain Sidney Crosby appears to be close to returning after missing three games because of an upper-body injury.

Crosby was a full participant in practice Tuesday.

Dallas goaltender Ben Bishop is expected to miss about a week because of a lower-body injury that forced him out of Monday's 2-1 loss to the Rangers in New York.

Crosby first rejoined his teammates on the ice for a morning skate Monday but did not take part in line rushes. Tuesday was a step forward.

"It's good to get out there with the guys, compete and get back into doing those regular things," he said. "Just to be able to get contact and do regular drills, that's a good sign. It feels good to be able to do those things.

"We'll see how I feel."

Crosby said it was difficult sitting out, especially with Pittsburgh mired in a 1-7-2 slump and an uncharacteristic 3-5-2 at home.

"You want to be with the group regardless of winning or losing. You want to be out there," he said. "But I think especially when you lose you just want to go and help any way you can. (I'm) trying to stay positive and do my best to get back."

Crosby had two goals, five points in the three games before he got hurt. He ranks third on the team with 19 points and is tied for second with eight goals.

"I just felt like my timing, deciding when to shoot, when to look to pass, just attacking, I feel like things like that started to come," Crosby said. "Hopefully, I can pick up there."

The Penguins' other star center, Evgeni Malkin, sat out practice Tuesday because of what coach Mike Sullivan called a "maintenance day," but could be available to face Dallas. Center Matt Cullen has a lower-body injury that will keep him out "longer term," according to Sullivan.

Bishop's injury "is soft tissue. It's nothing serious," Stars coach Jim Montgomery said.

Anton Khudobin, who replaced Bishop against the Rangers, is expected to take over the No. 1 duties for the time being. The Stars are expected to recall Landon Bow to serve as the backup.

"Nothing changes," Khudobin said of moving up while Bishop is out.

He took the loss Monday and is 2-2-1 in his five decisions over the past three weeks.

"We have all the faith in (Khudobin), all the confidence in the world," center Tyler Seguin said.

The Stars have just three regulation losses over their past 11 games and the loss to New York ended a two-game winning streak, but Montgomery said his club's work ethic is lacking.

"I want guys to win one-on-one battles, and I want people stopping on pucks, besides the puck pressure," Montgomery said. "The one thing I found inconsistent with our team has been our work ethic on a daily basis. That's practice and games.

"It's something we've talked a lot about with the leadership group. I don't think we understand yet what real hard work looks like."
