Stars overhaul power play to create two balanced units: 'I'd like to create inner competition'

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- The Stars are tinkering with their power play again, this time spreading their star power more evenly to create two balanced units instead of a top-heavy No. 1 unit.During practice in Anaheim on Tuesday afternoon, the Stars unveiled these units:Radek Faksa in front of the net, with Tyler Seguin and Alexander Radulov in the circles, Devin Shore in the middle and Gavin Bayreuther at the point.Martin Hanzal in front of the net, with Esa Lindell and Jason Spezza in the circles, Jamie Benn in the middle and Miro Heiskanen at the point."I think also with the way the power play...

Friday Links: The Return of Martin Hanzal

Friday Links: The Return of Martin Hanzal

The Stars’ veteran is getting his first taste of NHL action since this past February tonight against the Sharks. Plus, NHL awards talk, Devin Shore is “hip,” and more. Many people assumed that Martin Hanzal’s career was over. Recovering from spinal surgery is no cakewalk to begin with, so making a return to a hard-hitting professional sport like hockey makes it even more difficult. But when the Dallas Stars take on the San Jose Sharks tonight, Hanzal will be in the lineup. It will be his first NHL game since this past February, and the forward is obviously glad to be back: “It was...

Stars forward Martin Hanzal set to return to lineup Friday for first time since February

FRISCO -- Stars forward Martin Hanzal will make his return to the Dallas lineup on Friday night against San Jose, playing his first game since February due to back surgery.Hanzal will slot into the second line with Devin Shore and Jason Spezza, plus be on the second power-play unit as the net-front presence and also on the penalty kill."I expect him to help us right away," Stars coach Jim Montgomery said. "Do I expect him to be crisp and sharp? No. He's got to get into it. We think that on the second power play unit and third penalty killing tandem up front, and some 5-on-5 obviously that the...

Stars continue to tweak slumping power play: 'People and the pucks are not getting to the net often enough'

Stars continue to tweak slumping power play: 'People and the pucks are not getting to the net often enough'

EDMONTON, Alberta -- The struggling Stars power play will receive another new look on Tuesday night in Edmonton against the Oilers.Devin Shore will move up to the first unit and occupy the slot as the "bumper" while Jason Spezza will dip to the second unit along the half-wall. It's the latest move for the Stars power play that has scored on just 5 of its last 52 opportunities. Since the Oct. 16 game at New Jersey, no NHL team has a worse power play than the Stars' 9.6 percent."We wanted Spezza to be on the second unit because we felt he's a real half-wall guy and he makes the second unit a...

Stars Fall Short Against Rolling Avalanche

Stars Fall Short Against Rolling Avalanche

While Dallas battled back to even up the score in the third period, Colorado came through with some fast hitters to win it. After an exciting win at home against the Ottawa Senators on Friday night, the Dallas Stars are on the road once again. In what was only their fourth game total and their first road test against a Central Division rival so far this season, the Stars took on one of the best lines in the NHL in Colorado. Devin Shore had returned on Friday night and had an immediate impact, registering two assists. Miro Heiskanen also had a top performance, scoring two goals of his own...

Why Brett Ritchie Is Getting Another Chance in the Top Six

Why Brett Ritchie Is Getting Another Chance in the Top Six

Ritchie’s time with Dallas has seen some real highs and lows, but the Stars are banking on the highs returning soon Brett Ritchie has missed some time lately. The official word is that it was an “upper-body infection that caused inflammation,” which could be everything from a bad cold to a flu or something else that we’ll never know, because NHL teams don’t violate HIPAA very often these days. Either way, Ritchie missed four games before returning against Columbus, and now we’re receiving word that, in Devin Shore’s stead, Ritchie will be getting some scoring-line time...

Stars continue search for depth as injuries arise among forwards, defensemen

FRISCO -- Without another injured player, the Stars are searching for depth again.Stars forward Devin Shore will likely miss the next 10 days with a lower-body injury suffered in Monday's loss to Columbus, a timeline consistent with what coach Jim Montgomery relayed after the game."It's pretty much what we thought," Montgomery said after practice on Wednesday. "It's somewhere between a week to two weeks, probably looking at 10 days max."Shore was hurt in the first period after an awkward fall in the corner and did not return for the rest of the game, interrupting a potential breakout season...

Afterwords: Depleted Stars Again Depleted, Then Defeated

Radulov returned, but Devin Shore tapped out to spend some time on the shelf When you feel like the team pushes hard, but you’re staring at a 2-1 loss at home, some soul-searching may be in order. *** Through 18 games, the Stars are in a wild card spot. With some stolen points and some missed opportunities, I think it’s fair to say that’s about where this team belongs. That still holds true, by the way, for this team healthy (if we ever see it). It’s easy to put all the good in a giant pile, gaze at it for a while, and pronounce this team Cup-ready as soon as it Can Put...

The Stars are not getting any luck these days when it comes to injuries. Plus, the Central Division is (mostly) stacked, Hockey Hall of Fame talk, and more.
