At least the preseason one; it looks like it'll be out sometime today. Anyway, the regular-season stuff isn't being relased until 11 a.m. Thursday, but there are a few sneak-peek items which I will now share with you. So gather 'round, boys and girls and get the info:
**The Stars will open the regular-season at home, on Friday, Oct. 10. Their opponent? The Ken Hitchcock-led Columbus Blue Jackets.
**There will be home-and-home matchups with three Eastern Conference teams: the New Jersey Devils (in Dallas on New Year's Eve), the N.Y. Rangers (here on Feb. 6) and the Florida Panthers (here on March 28).
**Oh, and the biggest (or at least most fun) news of all: it looks like the Pittsburgh Penguins and Washington Capitals will be playing in Dallas this season. That's right, kids, get your Sidney Crosby and Alex Ovechkin watching in while you can. Remember, the new schedule means NHL teams will play each other at least once a year, but that doesn't mean they'll always come here!
I know I've mentioned this before (a few thousand times), but the NHL really, really, really needs to have home-and-homes with everyone each season.
