Detroit Red Wings Use Special Teams To Beat Dallas Stars 3-1

A frenetic third period made things interesting, but the Stars just couldn’t breach the barrier The Detroit Red Wings scored two power play goals, the Dallas Stars failed to convert on any of their five extra-man opportunities, and that turned out to be the big story as the Wings skated away with a tight 2-1 victory. Dylan Larkin, Anthony Mantha and Steve Ott scored the Detroit goals, while Esa Lindell had the lone Dallas tally. Kari Lehtonen was sharp in net for the Stars, but Red Wings netminder Petr Mrazek was better, making 34 saves, including 17 in the final 20 minutes. Dallas...

Game 18 Afterwords: Nathan MacKinnon Vs. Kari Lehtonen

Dallas again jumped out to a lead against the Avs, but this time they managed not to throw it away, despite their best efforts. Quick hits today due to unforeseen circumstances, but yeah. That was something, was it not? *** John Klingberg. John Klingberg had a nice takeaway in the offensive zone to create a chance for Seguin, who shot the puck off the top of the crossbar. John Klingberg also accidentally shot a puck at Kari Lehtonen (more of a backhand whack). John Klingberg did make a nice move to pull a puck through his legs on the rush and feed Jamie Benn for a great chance, but John...

First Period Flurry Pushes Stars past Avs 3-2

Kari Lehtonen stood tall, and the Stars found just enough offense to see off the Colorado Avalanche Thursday night The Dallas Stars welcomed back Cody Eakin, and rode a stellar performance from Kari Lehtonen to a 3-2 victory against the Colorado Avalanche on Thursday night. It was ugly, but fans have come to expect a bit of chaos when Colorado comes to town. If the first period wasn’t a best-case scenario for the Stars it was awfully close. Johnny Oduya got the ball rolling, and got a very big monkey off his back. The veteran defender pounded a slap-shot into traffic, got a favorable...

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,...

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...

Recap: Dallas Stars Drop a Shocker to the Winnipeg Jets, 8-2

It’s the Patrik Laine Show! Again! As usual. Fighting majors, friendly fire, and more! It’s election night, so you get what you get. Can we count that first point against Dan Hamhuis? Committing to a sliding block, he went backward into Kari Lehtonen to enable the Mark Scheifele goal. Fudge. Was that first Patrik Laine goal deflected off a high stick? Kari thought so. The officials did not (indeed, it was officially credited as an unassisted goal). That second Laine goal, on the Tyler Seguin hooking penalty, did come the hard way. Kari battled the shot and the follow-up, but that third...
