Dallas Stars Daily Links: Stars Downed By Predators, 4-1

Stars fall to 1-3 for the year. Plus, small sample sizes, small defensemen, and Crosby vs. Ovechkin While the final score looked a lot worse than the game seemed for the first 55 or so minutes, the Stars still took the L. They again managed to put up a good shot total, with 31, but in the recurring theme of the young season failed to capitalize on the numerous scoring chances they created throughout the game. Here are some highlights and post game reactions: The PK started strong with a 5 minute kill on Martin Hanzal’s boarding major: 5 minutes with the man advantage and the Preds...

Dallas Stars Lose Special Teams, Lead in 4-1 Loss to Nashville Predators

Dallas Stars Lose Special Teams, Lead in 4-1 Loss to Nashville Predators

The Stars couldn’t buy a power play as their offensive woes continued at even strength. Bridgestone Arena in Nashville has been the home of many terrors for the Dallas Stars over the years, and while Thursday’s 4-1 loss to the Nashville Predators couldn’t be called a horror show, it was definitely another piece in the mounting frustration the team is facing early this season. It all started off so well too. Some nice pressure on the penalty kill forced Pekka Rinne to try and handle the puck quickly behind his own net, ending in a delay of game penalty against the Predators. The Stars...

Nashville Predators 4, Dallas Stars 1: The Sam Girard Show

Nashville Predators 4, Dallas Stars 1: The Sam Girard Show

Samuel Girard must really like Nashville. He’s playing like he wants to stay awhile. Nothing like a Central Division rival to stir up some trouble, huh? That’s what the Dallas Stars attempted to do on Thursday in Nashville, but a better defensive effort and magic from the likes of Filip Forsberg, Samuel Girard and Viktor Arvidsson proved to be too much in a 4-1 victory. It didn’t start out great for the Preds, however. A delay of game penalty on Pekka Rinne for covering the puck too long behind his own net led to Jamie Benn’s power play goal, the lone tally in the first as the Stars...

WATCH: Samuel Girard Scores First NHL Goal

SAMWISE IS ON THE BOARD! Rookie defenseman Samuel Girard scored his first NHL goal tonight against the Dallas Stars! With a little more than three minutes gone in the 2nd period, Girard ripped one high blocker side by Ben Bishop. Take a look: This made it a 1-1 game. Then a few minutes later, Girard assisted on Filip Forsberg’s go-ahead goal. The Predators lead the Stars 2-1 with nine minutes left in the period. With Roman Josi not playing and Yannick Weber leaving the game after a dirty hit by Martin Hanzal in the first period, the Predators needed the rest of the blueline to step up....

Dallas Stars Look To Go Streaking Versus Nashville Predators Tonight

The game winning kind of streaking, that is. After seemingly dominating their first two games in possession and shooting metrics, and losing both efforts, the Dallas Stars finally got their first win of the season against the Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday night. It was another game in which the Stars dominated puck possession, but this time, a solid defensive effort and great goaltending by Ben Bishop gave the Stars two points in the standings. Head coach Ken Hitchcock felt it was about time they got the result they deserved. “I was thinking, on the bench, that we'd played three great...
