Afterwords: Tylers One and Too Help Stars Weather the Hurricanes

Afterwords: Tylers One and Too Help Stars Weather the Hurricanes

Tylers Pitlick and Seguin gave the Stars just enough, and Ben Bishop gave them plenty more With 18:12 left in the third, Martin Hanzal took a shot on goal. It would be the last puck the Stars put on the Carolina net all game, and somehow, it wouldn’t matter. The Stars have won four games in a row, and the Hurricanes were the toughest team they faced in that stretch. As much as the team can take the points and move on, fans often have a hard time watching a 4-0 show of dominance turn into a nailbiter. Fans of the Dallas Stars over the last couple of years have an even more difficult time...

Afterwords: Everything Is Fine, the Standings Notwithstanding

The Stars are not off to their best start, all things considered Martin Hanzal got injured in the Stars’ second game of the season and played only eight minutes or so as a result. Ben Bishop got knocked out of their first game early in the third and couldn’t return. The Stars are 0-2-0 to start the season, and fans are understandably concerned. This isn’t what you need after a high-spending offseason following a major disappointment the season before. To cut to the chase, though, I’m not concerned. Yet. Once again, Dallas was looking good to start the game until a breakdown was...
