Benn and Spezza Shine in Dallas Stars’ 5-2 Win Over Nashville Predators

Benn and Spezza Shine in Dallas Stars’ 5-2 Win Over Nashville Predators

“And we’re the three best friends that anyone could have...” And now for something completely different. The Dallas Stars' last 11 goal totals? 1, 3, 2, 1, 3, 2, 2, 3, 2, 3, 1. Thursday night against the Nashville Predators? Try five. In two periods, even. Jason Dickinson played his second NHL game, Kari Lehtonen got yet another nod in net, Cody Eakin sat out, and perhaps most importantly- Lindy Ruff reunited the super friends as he continues to pull levers in search of change. Tonight it worked. Three points for Jamie Benn. Three points for Jason Spezza. Two points for Tyler Seguin....

GameThread for Dallas Stars at St.Louis Blues, Nov 28th, 2016

Stars head to Scottrade for divisional match-up Dallas is currently sitting at a tepid 9-8-5, good for 23rd overall in the League. They’ll be hungry to break into the double-digit win club, and you can insert your own Jamie Benn-doesn’t-go-down-without-a-fight joke here if you like. The Blues have been looking a lot more lively as of late. They put together an impressive four-game winning streak, and the offense is beginning to look healthy. Goalscoring shouldn’t be an issue against Dallas - only the Flames and Flyers have given up more goals against this year than the Big D. This is...

Dallas Stars At St. Louis Blues GameDay Storystream

The Stars' defense is struggling and their goaltending has been sub-par so far this season. The Dallas Stars sit in fifth place in the Central Division with an unimpressive -15 goal differential. If Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin didn't exist, that number may be even worse. Seguin leads the Stars with seven goals and fifteen assists; Benn is second on the team with six goals and eleven assists. Toss in Patrick Eaves (9 goals) and Brett Richie (6 goals), and you'd think that the Stars could be dangerous. They can be. They're 5-3-2 in their last ten and seem to be shaking off the same doldrums...

Jamie Scored! No, The Other One...

The Stars killed their OT curse in fine fashion and Jamie Oleksiak broke an epic goal drought. That’s how you kill an OT curse, my friends: through the magic of friendship. And goals. 1.

Tuesday Links: Stars Break OT Jinx, Tame The Wild 3-2

The Captain scored in OT, Honka Played 1st NHL game and got a point, Oleksiak had 2/3rds of a Gordie Howe Hat Trick Having lost their previous 9 overtime games. Stars fans had to be nervous when last night’s game went to an extra frame tied 2-2. Another cringe worthy moment was a Wild 2 on 1 that was broken up beautifully by Julius Honka. Captain Jamie Benn ended things with a shot over Darcy Kuemper’s shoulder, to break the OT jinx. I thought our execution was better, just hanging on to the puck," Dallas coach Lindy Ruff said. "We spent a lot of time on (overtime strategy) through...

Wild Minute: Wild rallies twice but falls in overtime

The Wild got game-tying goals from Nino Niederreiter and Erik Haula, but Jamie Benn scored the overtime winner to give the Dallas Stars a 3-2 victory.

Dallas Stars Finally Strike in OT, Beat Minnesota Wild 3-2

Overtime and Jamie Benn were slumping hard. They combined forces this evening to score a big two points. Jamie Oleksiak took the monkey off his back during his goal celebration in the second period and flung it into the lower bowl (NFL officials everywhere were offended, btw). As it turned out it was the third smallest such monkey (name of my band in high school) to be discarded on the evening. Jamie Benn getting on the score sheet was one. The overtime win was obviously the other. The 3-on-3 session arrived with the Stars looking to avoid their sixth straight OT loss, and a 10th straight...

What is Wrong with John Klingberg?

The Dallas Stars best defenseman is clearly not himself this season, and the reasons are not simple or easily addressed. If there's been a pattern to the ragged first games of the Dallas Stars season, it's that everything has just looked a little... off. The speedy transition game that the Stars rode for most of last season hasn't really its head. Heck there were questions about the chemistry between Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin after the first two games, and they have since been spit up, and while Seguin is rolling, Jamie Benn's even-strength production has been conspicuously absent. But...

Game 17 Afterwords: Guess Who Lost in Overtime Again Well Yeah It’s These Guys

How about we scrap 3v3 and just do 1-on-1 rock paper scissors in overtime? Jamie Benn, Tyler Seguin and John Klingberg are the Dallas Stars. That’s where this team starts at its best, and tonight, that’s where they ended, and not because they scored. The 2014-15 Dallas Stars missed the playoffs because of an abysmal early start and sub-par goaltending all season long. Burdened by a newly post-cliff Kari Lehtonen and a defense that took enough time figuring things out that Jim Nill brought in Jason Demers and Klingberg, the 2014-15 Dallas Stars began their season with a 6-7-4 record,...

The Morning After The Night Before, 14 November 2016

When the Canucks remembered how to win, and Troy Stecher looked like Erik Karlsson... Well that was something, wasn’t it? After a barren run of just one win in eleven games, up pop our Vancouver Canucks to steal a 5-4 OT victory over the Jamie Benn / Tyler Seguin-led Dallas Stars. Not only that, but we were 3-1 down after 2 periods. The comeback kids have remembered how to play. Our game recap from the inestimable vancitydan can be found here - do make sure you have a read. And watch. Watch that Troy Stecher goal. It gave me actual shivers. Now, it’s not often this team wins, so let’s...

Kari Lehtonen Comes Up Big as Dallas Stars Defeat Edmonton Oilers 3-2

The Stars goalie made 40 saves on the second night of a back-to-back and Antoine Roussel had a night to remember as the Stars crept back to 0.500. Remember when it seemed like every Dallas Stars scoring forward not named Tyler Seguin or Jamie Benn went down in a heap? The thought then was that the Stars needed to aim to get through that stretch with a 0.500 record so that they could re-rack once they had their full compliment again. And while that goal looked very sketchy for a little while, it seems to be in reach once again as the Stars pulled out a 3-2 win over the Edmonton Oilers in...

Dallas Stars Daily Links: Stars Get Some Mojo Back With 4-2 Win Over the Calgary Flames

Hope returns, and the injured cavalry may not be far behind. Plus, keeping track of the #MurderDeathKill Division, and keeping score in the Subban-Weber trade. Sometimes, the Dallas Stars just turn up when you need them most. Jamie Benn scored twice, Antoine Roussel netted a Gordie Howe hat trick and Kari Lehtonen stopped 29 of 31 shots, and next thing you know they’ve beaten the Calgary Flames 4-2 and made us all believe in hope again. And they found a way to do this even after giving up a two-goal lead in the second period: "We have to find ways to get points, these games aren't going...

Game 14 Afterwords: Jamie Benn Wakes Up to Overcome Pesky Flames

There’s nothing like goals and Calgary to make things feel all right for a little while. The Western Canada road trip always feels a bit like Get Healthy time for Dallas. Usually, that is because those three teams have been, like most Canadian teams, not very good. This year, it is because the Stars have little choice. They need to start winning games, and these three teams will be as mediocre as any in the West, no matter what Edmonton’s early surge might say. Folks have been pining for a goalie to steal a game for Dallas already, and that...did not happen tonight. Kari Lehtonen...

Dallas Stars Morning Skate Update: Justin Dowling Draws Into Lineup In Hometown

Jamie Oleksiak also draws into the lineup. Some newsworthy items came out of morning skate in Calgary. Head coach Lindy Ruff made a few changes up front. Justin Dowling, an Albertan native, will play in front of his hometown tonight when the Stars take on the Calgary Flames. Lines, such as they were, looked as follows. I wouldn’t put too much stock into these as Ruff is likely to hit the pulse button on his line blender from puck drop today in an effort to spark some improved play by his team.
