Tonight, the Dallas Stars will be raising No. 9 to the rafters in honor of Mike Modano. The festivities begin this afternoon at 4:30 with an arrival event and “Green Carpet” ceremony in true Stars fashion and the ceremony itself begins at 6:00. The Stars have also released a book with limited quantities entitled "Nine: A Salute to Mike Modano" with 1,000 special edition copies personally autographed by Modano that have already sold out. We reached out to several of Modanos colleagues from his playing career to discuss their experiences with him. Bill Guerin, two-time Stanley Cup winner, four-time NHL All-Star and U.S. Olympic Silver Medalist: “Ive known Mike for a long time. We played in the World Juniors when we were 18 and were teammates in three Olympics and two World Cups. It was Mike in the middle, Keith Tkachuk on the left and myself on the right. Mike is the greatest American to ever play the game. He is an amazing hockey player and an even better person. We first met when I was playing in Springfield and he was playing in St. Albert and I couldnt believe the skill level of a player that age could be that high. He was better than everyone else, but so humble. It was amazing that he could be so great and also so grounded. Mike IS the Dallas Stars, so its fitting that they are retiring his number” Craig Button, TSN Scout and former Dallas Stars Director of Scouting (1992-98) and Director of Player Personnel (1998-2000): “Watching Modano raise the Stanley Cup over his head, the exhilaration and the emotion that you could feel was phenomenal. At that time, he was only the fourth first overall pick (since the universal draft began in 1970) to win the Cup with the franchise that had drafted him. Only Guy Lafleur (1971), Denis Potvin (1973) and Mario Lemieux (1984) were those who had done it to that point. Ironically Lemieux and Modano faced off in 1991 when it was going to happen for the third time. There is an expectation that when you are selected first overall that you can change the fortunes of a franchise. Mike did that and his moment when he raised the cup I think embodied a lot of satisfaction in being able to do it.” Mark Janko, Dallas Stars Director of Hockey Administration and Director of Public Relations from 2005 to 2008. “The thing that people dont understand is how generous he is with his time with people. Hes been pulled in so many different directions over the years. We asked him to go to hospitals, kids carnivals, so many different things and he always stayed longer than he was required. He would stay for an hour when he was asked to stay for 10 minutes. He was the perfect athlete to sell the game to Dallas. The fans love him and he still lives in Dallas to this day. He wanted to sell the game in Dallas and did whatever he could to do it. People need to know how sensitive he is. He cares so much about others and about winning. He had tears in his eyes during his last game in Dallas, when he won the Stanley Cup and when he retired as a member of the Dallas Stars. He has such a tender heart, but also a warriors spirit. He cared so passionately and deeply about the type of person and teammate that he was. He came back from injuries faster than expected because he worked so hard to do it. He had God-given ability and worked effortlessly to perfect it.” Theres no shortage of great sentiment when it comes to Modano and theres no doubt about whether tears will be shed tonight during this incredible honour. These reflections about Modano are great, but none of them compare to the greatness of his hairdo and babyface on the day of the 1988 NHL Entry Draft.

You can watch the game live in the first half of the NHL on TSNs doubleheader at 7pm et/4pm pt. You can also listen to the game live on TSN 690 Montreal. Montreal has recorded five straight wins and has earned at least a point in 10 straight games, posting a superb 9-0-1 record during that stretch. The Canadiens are on their first five-game winning streak since March 7-16 of last season, but Montreal hasnt won six in a row since March 6-16, 2010. Historically speaking, Tuesdays matchup is a good one for the Habs, who have claimed seven straight and nine of their last 10 encounters with the Kings. Los Angeles also has lost five in a row and 12 of its past 13 games in Montreal. The Canadiens picked up their most recent victory in Saturdays home test against the lowly Buffalo Sabres. Brandon Prust and Tomas Plekanec both tallied a goal and an assist to help Montreal notch a 3-2 regulation win over the Sabres. Alex Galchenyuk also lit the lamp and Travis Moen tallied two assists for Montreal. Carey Price turned aside 23 shots for the win. Despite his club improving to 11-1-2 in its last 14 games, head coach Michel Therrien was less than pleased with his clubs start against the Sabres, who are dead last in the NHL standings. "There was no intensity in the first and that is why I started the fourth line in the second and they responded 19 seconds later. They were physical, they were intense and showed some leadership," said Therrien.dddddddddddd Saturdays win was the sixth straight on home ice for Montreal, which is completing a three-game stay at the Bell Centre on Tuesday. The Habs boast a 11-5-2 record as the home club in 2013-14. Although the Kings havent had much success against the Canadiens over the years, they are entering tonights tilt on a three-game winning streak. Another win for L.A. tonight would match a four-game run from Nov. 14-19 as the clubs longest winning stretch of the season. Martin Jones made his second NHL start and stopped 16 shots to notch his first career shutout in Saturdays 3-0 home win over the New York Islanders. Anze Kopitar, Dustin Brown and Tyler Toffoli each scored once for the Kings. "Its good. I mean anytime you win its a good feeling," Jones said. "It wasnt a ton of work early, but they had some zone time so I was able to get in the game. I thought we got better as the game went on." The Kings expect to return to Ben Scrivens as the starting goaltender on Tuesday. The former Toronto Maple Leafs netminder is 1-2-0 with a 2.75 goals against average in four career appearances against the Canadiens. Price, meanwhile, is 3-0 with a 1.67 GAA in three lifetime starts against L.A. Los Angeles is kicking off a four-game road trip tonight and the trek will also take the team to Toronto, Ottawa and Chicago. The Kings have won five of their last six away games to improve their road record this season to 9-3-2. ' ' '
