Philip Larsen (a favorite of mine) will get the nod tonight, also a small-ish defenseman with good vision. He's been scratched the past three games, which is silly, but given the structure of the Stars defense, it's hard to make a lot of room for him.
Neal, meanwhile, has six goals in 10 games after a 2011-12 season in which he scored 40 and made the All-Star team. Niskanen is nursing an ankle injury, but has matured into a legitimately reliable top-four defenseman and power-play presence in his own right.
