Khudobin will start in goal Sunday against the visiting Canucks, Mark Stepneski of the Stars' official site reports.

No. 1 netminder Ben Bishop curiously took to the ice ahead of morning skate, which was a not-so-subtle hint that Khudobin will need to start for the second straight game. Khudobin is 13-15-3 with a 2.54 GAA and .925 save percentage on the season; the ratios over 35 games are serviceable, and it's clear that Stars coach Jim Montgomery has a lot of faith in the backup netminder to help the team secure a playoff berth.
