Dallas Stars Daily Links: Stars Play Spoilers With Shutout of the Hurricanes

They can avoid a historic low with points in Tampa Bay. Plus, expect Olympics news before the playoffs, and expect the U.S. women’s team to come up big. Kari Lehtonen got his third shutout of the season and the Dallas Stars brought themselves one step away from another historic low point as they frustrated the playoff hopes of the Carolina Hurricanes last night in Raleigh. Jason Spezza scored the game-winner in the second period during a game that was much closer than the two empty-netters in the last two minutes made it look. Head Coach Lindy Ruff talked with Mike Heika about playing for...

Game 78 Afterwords: How To Enjoy an Otherwise Meaningless Shutout Win

Everything is meaningless, or nothing is. I can’t imagine how tough this time must be for the Dallas Stars. From the GM on down, there must be an enormous sense of disappointment that never really goes away. But if there’s anything that can at least stave off the doldrums for a bit, it might be a shutout. I know, I know. You’ll all say that Kari Lehtonen is great until the pressure mounts, and there’s no way to prove otherwise. He had the misfortune of spending his prime years plaing behind a sub-prime mortgage of a team, and when he finally started getting his shot at the...

Recap: Dallas Stars Give Up Three In the Third, Lose to Montreal Canadiens 4-1

Two great periods, followed by one really really not-so-great one. The pregame hype was all about Jamie vs. Jordie, but the real story ended up being Kari vs. Carey. While the Benn brothers were taking media call after media call, Al Montoya was turning up injured at the morning skate. That meant Carey Price, probably the single best netminder in the world, would start against the Dallas Stars. If he had not, the Montreal Canadiens may have had a very different game. Okay, but it really did look as if Kari Lehtonen was going to win a goalie duel with Jesus Price Superstar for those first...

Dallas Stars Daily Links: Stars Officially Eliminated from Playoff Contention

The Stars aren’t making the playoffs, but they do play the Canadiens tonight. Plus, Kari Lehtonen was named the NHL’s second Star of the Week, and the future of hockey in China. Well, it won’t come as a surprise, but the Stars are officially out of the playoff race. Nashville and St. Louis both won tonight and that mathematically eliminated the Dallas Stars from the playoff race.— Mark Stepneski (@StarsInsideEdge) March 28, 2017 And although their slim postseason hopes are gone, the season isn’t quite over yet. The Stars play the Canadiens tonight in Montreal, and the talk of...

Kari Lehtonen starting on the road Sunday for Dallas

Dallas Stars netminder Kari Lehtonen will draw the start on Sunday for the Stars' road clash with the New Jersey Devlis. What It Means: Lehtonen has gone 19-22-7 through 53 games this season, sporting very shaky marks in both save percentage (.904) and goals against average (2.82). Our models project Lehtonen for 24.4 saves, 2.6 goals against and a 50.0 percent chance of scoring a win on Sunday night, making him our 8th-ranked fantasy goalie among the 10 in action today.
