Anton Khudobin will start in net for the Dallas Stars in Game 1 against the Calgary Flames.

Cam Talbot will be in net for the Flames.

Khudobin split time in the Stars’ net with Ben Bishop this season but Bishop was deemed “unfit to play” in the two of the three round-robin games Dallas played last week. Bishop will back up Khudobin in Game 1.

Khudobin posted a 16-8-4 record this season with a league-leading .930 save percentage this season.

In other Stars news, Tyler Seguin — who was deemed “unfit to play” in Sunday’s round robin win over the Blues — is back in the lineup against the Flames.
