Dallas' experience helped pull out a crucial Game 3 victory over Anaheim, and the Stars will look to use that to their advantage again Wednesday night when they try to even their Western Conference semifinal series at two games apiece.

"That win put us in the same position as we were in [in the first round] against Edmonton," Stars coach Dave Tippett said. "We're down, 2-1, and facing a critical game in Game 4."

It's not a must-win, but it's as close to it as you can get. A Stars win and the series is tied. A Mighty Ducks win and Anaheim takes a 3-1 lead into Game 5 at Dallas.
