Dallas Stars Daily Links: Roussel Nets First NHL Hat Trick As the Stars Win One For Strader

It was a good night to be a Stars fan. Meanwhile trade-deadline decisions still loom, and the rumors are out there. With a first career hat trick by Antoine Roussel and an OT game winner by Jamie Benn, the Dallas Stars celebrated Dave Strader’s return in the best way possible: with a big 4-3 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning in front of an ecstatic home crowd. But for all the joy in Big D last night, the Stars remain six points out of the second wildcard spot and will have decisions to make as they come out of the upcoming bye week, writes Mike Heika of The Dallas Morning News....

Game 60 Afterwords: Dave Strader and Antoine Roussel

Game 60 Afterwords: Dave Strader and Antoine Roussel

Two of the bright spots for Dallas this year were at their brightest Saturday night. It’s fitting that an emotional night was fueled by the Stars’ most emotional player. Going into Saturday night, the Stars had answered every challenge to step up and make something of a weak Western Conference with a resounding “nah.” From botched 3-on-0 rushes to special teams discombobulation, these 60 games have been a bit of a beating, and that made more painful for fans by the absence of the voice that narrated last year’s Western Conference champs over the season’s 82 games. So to have...

Lightning vs. Stars recap: Tampa Bay falls in overtime due to Antoine Roussel hat trick

Lightning vs. Stars recap: Tampa Bay falls in overtime due to Antoine Roussel hat trick

The Lightning can’t contain the French Gretzky and it costs them a point The Lightning were facing an uphill task after a week off. Following the bye week teams have posted a record of 3-10-3. They were also facing a team in a similar desparate situation. Dallas is also trying to overcome a slow start to claw their way back into the playoff race. As Coach Cooper said after Friday’s practice, “it’s urgency time”. Six points out of a playoff spot heading into the game, the Lightning desperately needed two points. They had to settle for one as Jamie Benn’s overtime goal led...

Pierre-Edouard Bellemare is so wonderfully French

Pierre-Edouard Bellemare is so wonderfully French

Those crepes look amazing. There aren’t that many French players in the NHL. Sure, you’ll often see Team France at the World Championships, but that’s generally about it. Only 11 French-born players have ever played in the NHL. Only six of them have ever played over 100 games. Only two of them are still active: Antoine Roussel and Pierre-Edouard Bellemare. Bellemare is one of the most prolific French players to ever play. Remember his inclusion on Team Europe, who had a pretty good World Cup? Yeah. So it makes sense that, in downtimes, Bellemare would celebrate his heritage. ...

Jordin Tootoo drops Antoine Roussel in fight during Blackhawks-Stars

Jordin Tootoo drops Antoine Roussel in fight during Blackhawks-Stars

Well, if you’re going to fight, you might as well kick the other guy’s butt. There’s not a ton to get excited about with Jordin Tootoo’s game. The veteran didn’t play for the past two weeks, and hasn’t recorded a point in the 36 games he has appeared in this season. Tootoo is hardly an NHL-caliber talent at this point, yet he’s hung on at the bottom of the Blackhawks’ roster as an energy guy and veteran locker room presence. Oh, and Tootoo can beat the crap out of people, which we were reminded of Saturday night when he dropped the Stars’ Antoine Roussel. If you’re into...

Dallas Stars Daily Links: With Spezza Out, the Stars Fight For a Consistency Other Than Misfortune

Dallas Stars Daily Links: With Spezza Out, the Stars Fight For a Consistency Other Than Misfortune

Will Ritchie move on up? Plus, the case for a Fleury-Lehtonen swap, and the continuing no-movement on the 2018 Olympics. Just when the Dallas Stars have a chance to get a run going, they end up short another player. This time, Jason Spezza will be out for the next couple of weeks with an upper-body injury, and Lindy Ruff will be shuffling lines once again. Mike Heika writes about the possible permutations: The guess is the veteran bench boss simply slides Brett Ritchie up to the right wing in Spezza's spot with Antoine Roussel and Tyler Seguin so as to protect the consistency that has been...
