Braden Holtby (0-1-0, .822 save percentage, 6.32 GAA) gets his third consecutive start and looks to reward Coach Adam Oates’s confidence in him after the young netminder was pulled before the end of the first period against Caglary. Dallas will have Kari Lehtonen (0-1-0, .921 save percentage, 3.05 GAA) in net.
