The team’s youngest player said he doesn’t care who the opponent is, he’s just ready to get started.

"We have what it takes to beat anyone. And I think if we play the way we're capable, I think we're gonna win the Stanley Cup. So, at the end of the day, I don't think it really matters who we're playing. I just think it's important that we focus on controlling what we can control, and do what we can do," Stars center Wyatt Johnston said.

The first game against the Wild starts at 8:30 p.m.

Games 1 and 2 are at the American Airlines Center.
