Texas have a number of former Griffins in their line-up including centre Aaron Gagnon, livewire forward Landon Wilson and point producing defenceman Garrett Stafford. As a result there could be some intriguing battles in this game and the Griffins need to win to keep a positive W/L ratio from their 5 game road trip to start the season. Expect to see a reasonably low scoring affair as Texas have been stingy and interestingly enough despite their record they have been outshot in every game.

* Not sure who gets the start tonight, Larsson started the previous game and might go tonight but McCollum deserves another after his strong debut.
* Tomas Tatar should (for the THIRD time!) make his debut tonight.
