Can Stars Start New Win Streak With A Win Over Islanders Tonight?

Can Stars Start New Win Streak With A Win Over Islanders Tonight?

All streaks start with two games won in a row. After an exciting outing versus the New York Rangers on Monday night in which the Dallas Stars likely deserved a better outcome than a shootout win, the Stars will look to continue their possession-dominant, smooth puck moving style when they go across the way to Barclays Center to take on the New York Islanders. There is good and bad news today in terms of what the Stars will be rolling in the way of personnel. Martin Hanzal will return from injured reserve tonight as Antoine Roussel draws out after injuring his elbow in Saturday’s loss...

Analyzing the Chemistry of the Dallas Stars Forwards: Radek Faksa Deserves Better

Analyzing the Chemistry of the Dallas Stars Forwards: Radek Faksa Deserves Better

Spoiler alert: there’s not much chemistry - unless you get to play with Radek Faksa In the middle of October, I had a suspicion I hoped would simply end up in the hot take coffin: Dallas’ young wingers were in their peak production windows with modest production to build on from seasons prior, and were tasked with supporting aging veterans. Conclusion: they wouldn’t provide the necessary punch of proper secondary scoring. Tyler Pitlick, Antoine Roussel, Brett Ritchie, Gemel Smith, Remi Elie, and Martin Hanzal are all on pace for less than 30 points through 82 games. If we restrict...

Dallas Stars Daily Links: The Stars Change the Lines and Roll the Dice Against Vegas

Dallas Stars Daily Links: The Stars Change the Lines and Roll the Dice Against Vegas

The Dallas Stars need more scoring if they want to get back to winning. And after a frustrating shutout in St. Louis, head coach Ken Hitchcock is promising some changes in tonight’s game against the Vegas Golden Knights. Mike Heika of The Dallas Morning News talked with Hitchcock about some of the Stars’ pressing personnel issues, including the domino effects of losing Martin Hanzal to injury and Antoine Roussel to the flu: Dallas took too many penalties the past two games and that forced a significant amount of the penalty killing work to go to Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn, who had to...

Julius Honka Draws Into Lineup As Stars Look For Rare Win Against Avalanche

Julius Honka Draws Into Lineup As Stars Look For Rare Win Against Avalanche

Jamie Oleksiak will sit; forward corps banged up last night On the second half of a back-to-back, the Dallas Stars will make a few lineup changes. Most of it may be predicated on getting fresh legs in wherever possible, as is the case on the blueline. Julius Honka will draw into the lineup after sitting out the last two games versus the Chicago Blackhawks. Jamie Oleksiak will draw out. Other changes will be predicated on sickness and some injuries. On the forward side, Antoine Roussel missed last night’s contest at home due to illness and is likely out tonight as well. Head coach Ken...

Opinion: Antoine Roussel Did A Dirty Thing Today

Opinion: Antoine Roussel Did A Dirty Thing Today

How about we not see that in the future? Antoine Roussel is beloved by Dallas Stars fans. In a town in which the “pest” on the team has always been beloved for their sacrifice-anything-for-the-team style of play (see: Ott, Steve), Roussel is often looked at with a “he’s a little s*it, but at least he’s ours!” mindset by many. Off the ice, Roussel has been a face of kindness. He always stops for a photo or an autograph, and he never seems put out by Stars fans approaching him when he isn’t working. He’s active in the community in terms of charity, and has made having a cat...
