Dallas Stars Daily Links: The Stars’ Best Couldn’t Buy a Goal in Brooklyn

And Lindy Ruff wants them to get more desperate. Plus, why Claude Julien may be on the hot seat, and why the All-Star skills competition should include breaking stuff. The penalty kill was perfect and Kari Lehtonen shone, but the Dallas Stars found another way to lose as Thomas Greiss and the New York Islanders shut them out 3-0 in Barclays Center. The offense that ran up seven goals to defeat the New York Rangers on Tuesday seemed to have left everything in Manhattan: "They have to be the difference-makers, that's why we have them where they are at," coach Lindy Ruff said of leading...

A Disturbing Trend: Giving Up The Opening Goal

A Disturbing Trend: Giving Up The Opening Goal

The Flames love playing from behind apparently. The Flames just dropped a key Western Conference contest to the Nashville Predators by the score of 4-3. What’s more disturbing than the actual loss and lack of effort is the Flames current trend of giving up the first goal of the game. Calgary has given up the opening goal in their last 6 games and they’ve lost 4 out of those 6. Nashville. Edmonton. New Jersey. Winnipeg. All losses. The Flames’ two wins in that sandwich of yuck were a 5-2 dismantling of the Panthers and a 3-2 sinking of the Sharks. Playing from behind is one thing if...

Wilderness Walk: Two-Goal Lead Edition

Wilderness Walk: Two-Goal Lead Edition

Minnesota escaped a second two-goal collapse in as many games last night.  Why are those things so darn hard to keep? Bruce Boudreau’s head may have exploded if the Wild had somehow lost to the Coyotes last night. You know that old adage that the two-goal lead is the worst one in hockey? It's totally true, and the Wild almost fell victim to its curse for the second game in a row last night, against another downright bad opponent. So what's the deal with the two-goal lead? Why are those things more slippery than banana peels on icy roads? Well, you know how when you're watching a game and...

Recap: Anaheim 2- Colorado 1: Glass Case of Emotion

The Ducks dodge, duck, dip, dive, and.. dodge broken glass to earn two points against the Avalanche. First Period: If there was ever a time to say the ice was tilted (which seems extremely dangerous) then this period was exactly that. The Ducks simply dominated the Avalanche in every facet of the opening twenty minutes. Anaheim got an early power play opportunity and things got entertaining. All is well in the world again. Corey Perry is back where he belongs on the first unit. The group instantly looked more dangerous and almost cashed in on a garbage goal in front of the net. The first...
