One Good Goal Plus One Good Dog

One Good Goal Plus One Good Dog

What would you say if I tell you the Stars one a one goal game. It’s all fun and games until you realize the Dallas Stars are going up against the San Jose Sharks rookie goaltender when they historically don’t do well against rookie goaltenders. At least it wasn’t his first game. Let’s tweet about it. 1. I can still hear that guys delivery of this line DeBoer to Ruff pregame discussing the nights matchup: "Dude, you're getting A.

The Daily Chum: Not all losses are created equal

The Daily Chum: Not all losses are created equal

How to tell the difference between a regular loss and a loss that should concern you. The Sharks lost to the Dallas Stars 1-0 last night and have scored only two goals over their past three games. San Jose is riding a three-game losing streak and plays again tonight against a Minnesota team looking to end a lengthy losing streak of its own. It’s not an ideal situation. But the two losses to Anaheim and Dallas don’t spell the same doom and gloom for the Sharks that the loss to St. Louis did. Against the Blues, San Jose attempted only three scoring chances according to corsica.hockey....

Dallas Stars Daily Links: 1-0 Shutout of Sharks Shows the Stars Still Have Something to Prove

Dallas Stars Daily Links: 1-0 Shutout of Sharks Shows the Stars Still Have Something to Prove

Playoffs or not, there’s work to do. Plus, Tyler Seguin’s community service, and The Rappelling Dog in AAC. The Dallas Stars avenged last week’s 5-1 road loss to the San Jose Sharks with all deliberate speed, as it were: shutting down the Sharks’ offense and staying sharp in their own end to win 1-0 in the first of two games in the AAC this week. Stars fans may have asked themselves where this performance came from, and why it showed up now. Well, hey, so did Mike Heika of The Dallas Morning News: It was an intriguing performance for the 29-33-10 Stars, who'd allowed 22 goals in...

Game 72 Afterwords: Stars Win Game! (feat: Schlemko, Dillon, George)

The Stars’ fourth line scored, and Kari Lehtonen made sure no one else did. I went to the Vancouver game last week, but that’ll be its own post in a little bit, once I get a chance to do the experience justice. In the meantime, let’s talk about the hockey most recent, eh? (That was an affectation.) So, the defensive pairing I noticed the most tonight was Brent Burns. The pairing I noticed the second-most was David Schlemko and Brenden Dillon, and only mostly because lol “Schlemko.” Also, do the Sharks have a better third pairing than Dallas thanks to two Dallas cast-offs? It’s...

Recap: Lehtonen Blanks Sharks

The San Jose Sharks can thank Dallas Stars winger Patrick Sharp for their loss Monday night. Sharp hit Stars netminder Kari Lehtonen up high with a shot during warmups and “woke the beast,” Lehtonen joked after the game. The Finnish goalie’s performance was no laughing matter, though, as he stopped all 30 pucks the Sharks threw at him […]

San Jose shut out in Dallas, skid reaches 3

San Jose shut out in Dallas, skid reaches 3 DALLAS — Kari Lehtonen made 30 saves to record his 36th career shutout Monday night. “He was ready to go today, just because I hit him up high in warm-ups,” Dallas teammate Patrick Sharp said. Lehtonen thought Sharp’s shot helped him get in the right frame of mind before his 1-0 win over the Sharks. “Chances are there,” head coach Peter DeBoer said, so we’ve just got to bear down and we’ve got to get one dirty or ugly around the net. The Sharks outshot the Stars 30-20, including 12-6 in the third period. Dallas (29-33-10) is...

Quick Bite: Sharks lose third in a row in Dallas, 1-0

Quick Bite: Sharks lose third in a row in Dallas, 1-0

The Sharks dominate the shot clock, but can’t beat the goalie. This is a recording. The Sharks (42-23-7) followed up a disappointing end to a homestand, dropping consecutive games to the Blues and Ducks, with another regulation loss against the hometown Stars (29-33-10) in Dallas, as San Jose’s offensive woes continued in a 1-0 defeat. The loss leaves the Sharks with a four point lead over Anaheim for first place in the Pacific and endangers their hold on home ice for the playoffs. A difficult road trip lies ahead, and the Sharks are going to have to find a way to score more than zero...

Dallas Stars Shutout San Jose Sharks

Dallas Stars Shutout San Jose Sharks

Yes, you read that headline right. The Stars recorded a shutout. A SHUTOUT. I didn’t even think it was allowed the way the Stars have been this season. It may have been boring, but to be honest, I’d take a 1-0 boring win from this team most nights because it shows that they are capable of getting their defense and goaltending in sync enough to record a win in a tight defensive game. Kari Lehtonen did some good work at times and turned away 30 shots in the shutout. While the shots against might not be where the Stars would like them to be, you can’t argue with the result – at least...

Dallas Stars Morning Skate: Jamie Benn Returns but Jason Spezza Likely Sidelined

Dallas Stars Morning Skate: Jamie Benn Returns but Jason Spezza Likely Sidelined

Because the Dallas Stars are apparently contractually obligated to have at least one high-dollar player miss every game this season, the return of Jamie Benn for tonight’s game against the San Jose Sharks is somewhat dampened by the probable loss of Jason Spezza to a bout of back spasms. Benn missed one game with an eye injury (referred to by Lindy Ruff as a scratch, so I’m going to guess something like a corneal abrasion, which heals in 24-48 hours if it’s minor) after being hurt at some point in the game against the Vancouver Canucks. Spezza left practice early on Sunday after his...

Preview: Stars & Sharks Face off Monday

Fortunately for the San Jose Sharks, the Dallas Stars aren’t a playoff team. If they were, the Sharks might have a problem: In their last five games against playoff-bound clubs, the Sharks are 1-4-0. Worse yet, they were held to a single goal in each of the four losses. This promises to be an interesting week for […]
