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...

Dallas Stars Daily Links: Who Will the Stars Protect in the Expansion Draft?

The team could have a few tough decisions to make. Plus, the Canucks are in town, and Patrick Sharp talks concussions. In his latest Mailbag over at Wrong Side of the Red Line, Sean Shapiro tackles the question of the expansion draft and which players the Stars will—and won’t—protect. When it comes to the seven forwards Dallas can protect, here’s how things could shake out. The first two are obvious and required by the NHL, so we’ll start there. Then you have Tyler Seguin, who will be protected, and Cody Eakin who the Stars made a long-term commitment to before last season. Radek...

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. Getting the band back together Stars expected lines:Benn-Eakin-SeguinSharp-Spezza-EavesRoussel-Faksa-RitchieKorpikoski-Shore-Cracknell— Mike Heika (@MikeHeika) November 22, 2016 After spending 7 games on separate lines and finally with a mostly full forward roster, head coach Lindy Ruff put Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin back together on the top line with a fully healthy Cody Eakin at center.

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...

Should Jordan Eberle be blamed for Dallas Stars' winning goal?

The key goal of the Edmonton Oilers’ 3-to-2 loss to the Dallas Stars on Sunday came with five minutes left in the second period, when Tyler Seguin hit winger Antoine Roussel cross-seam with a pass, and Roussel scored on Oilers goalie Cam Talbot.  On the Sportsnet broadcast, analyst Drew Remenda right away hammered on Jordan […]

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 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. Jamie Benn - Radek Faksa - Lauri KorpikoskiAntoine Roussel - Tyler Seguin - Patrick EavesCurtis...

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...

Is Average Goaltending Good Enough for Dallas This Year?

With so many deficiencies throughout the lineup, will league-average netminding work this season? Isn’t it funny how quickly expectations change? The Dallas Stars missed the playoffs for five straight seasons and attendance was down in the dumps. The expectation was to get better. The Stars underwent a re-branding effort that also brought Jim Nill and Lindy Ruff into the fold. Nill proceeded to acquire Tyler Seguin. The Stars got better. Not many expected them to make the playoffs in that first season (2013-14). They found a way in and took on the top-seeded Anaheim Ducks. The...
