John Klingberg's offense looks a little different for the Stars early this season

John Klingberg's offense looks a little different for the Stars early this season

NEWARK, N.J. -- John Klingberg has always been an offensive dynamo. Just not like this, he hasn't.Klingberg, the Stars' top defenseman and Norris Trophy candidate, entered Tuesday night's game in New Jersey with four goals in Dallas' first five games, tied for the league lead among defensemen. Ottawa's Maxime Lajoie scored his fourth during the Senators' win over the Stars on Monday night.Klingberg is often thought of the power-play magician with the elite vision to be one of the best passers in the league. Last season, he led all defensemen with 59 assists and ranked ninth among all skaters....

Stars Have Next Chance To Get First Win On The Road Tonight Against The Devils

Stars Have Next Chance To Get First Win On The Road Tonight Against The Devils

In their first back-to-back and second game on the road, the Stars travel to the garden state to take on Kyle Palmieri and the rest of the Devils. The Dallas Stars are on their first road trip of the season, a two-game jaunt to the Eastern Conference. Last night’s game against the Senators was less than stellar. The Stars had better possession and more shots on goal, but some missteps from the defense left them down 3-1 before the Senators got the empty net insurance goal. The New Jersey Devils are tonight’s opponent, and they’re currently undefeated at home in this incredibly young...
Dallas Stars Prospect Update: Denis Gurianov Carrying Momentum into Early AHL Season

Dallas Stars Prospect Update: Denis Gurianov Carrying Momentum into Early AHL Season

Elsewhere: Jason Robertson keeps dominating, and Riley Tufte scores his first of season. It’s amazing how much confidence can do for a player. For much of last season, Denis Gurianov did not look like a very confident player. His play on the ice for the Texas Stars was often hesitant, restrained. He put up decent numbers, with 19 goals and 34 points in 74 games, but given the tantalizing skill that he occasionally flashed, you just knew there was more he could offer. Things came to a somewhat controversial head in the AHL’s Calder Cup Final, where Gurianov was healthy scratched after...

Tuesday Links: New Forward Lines Fall Flat in Ottawa

Tuesday Links: New Forward Lines Fall Flat in Ottawa

The new lines seemed to work against Anaheim, but no such luck against the Senators last night. Plus, injury updates, a peek at what’s going on in the Central, and more. Last Saturday, head coach Jim Montgomery changed up the forward lines after the first period against the Anaheim Ducks. What followed was a historic second period in which the Dallas Stars had 30 shots on goal and came back from a 3-0 deficit to win the game 5-3. Eager to keep that magic going, Montgomery stuck with the same lineup heading into last night’s matchup against the Ottawa Senators, but no such luck was found...

Why Stars head coach Jim Montgomery pulled the goalie with about 8 minutes left in loss to Ottawa

Why Stars head coach Jim Montgomery pulled the goalie with about 8 minutes left in loss to Ottawa

OTTAWA, Ontario -- Jim Montgomery was serious.When the Stars coach said during the preseason that he was aggressive at times pulling his goaltender, it was a bit of a surprise. But during Dallas' 4-1 loss to Ottawa on Monday night, Montgomery pulled goalie Ben Bishop with almost eight minutes remaining and his team trailing by two goals."I just wanted to put a little more urgency and give ourselves a chance," Montgomery said. "I thought the pulled goalie situation actually worked. Just didn't score, like the rest of the night."Montgomery pulled Bishop for the extra attacker with 7:48...

Stars Outshoot Senators But Ultimately Fall In Their First Road Game

Stars Outshoot Senators But Ultimately Fall In Their First Road Game

The Stars struggled but Klingberg maintains his point streak. The Dallas Stars head off on their first road trip today and the first of three games in four nights. They begin the busy week in the Canadian Tire Centre, facing off against the Ottawa Senators. The Stars come in off a decisive victory against the Anaheim Ducks on Saturday night, shellacking the Ducks goalie with 30 shots in the second period alone. The Stars are currently 3-1-0 this season, but this is their first time on the road, which in the last few years has not been their best showing. Not to mention that the Stars have...

Why Stars coach Jim Montgomery's decision to split one of the NHL's top lines didn't pay off in loss to Senators

Why Stars coach Jim Montgomery's decision to split one of the NHL's top lines didn't pay off in loss to Senators

OTTAWA, Ontario -- The hope was that the pieces would assemble themselves, that they would coalesce into a picturesque and deep forward corps capable of scoring beyond the excellence of the top line. Offseason acquisitions and improvement from rostered players would combine to erase a primary concern for new Stars coach Jim Montgomery.Some nights, including Monday night’s 4-1 loss in Ottawa, Montgomery does some of the work himself, splitting up one of the league’s best lines in order to diversify his offense a bit. For the first time this season on Monday night, Jamie Benn, Tyler Seguin...

Are the high-flying Stars back under first-year coach Jim Montgomery?

Are the high-flying Stars back under first-year coach Jim Montgomery?

OTTAWA, Ontario -- The Stars are scoring again, so could it mean the return of the high-flying Stars?Through the first four games of the season, the Stars averaged 4.25 goals per game and have scored at least three goals in every game. Entering Monday's game in Ottawa, they ranked fifth in the league in goals per game and seventh in the league with 36.3 shot on goal per game.Those numbers are a far cry from last year under coach Ken Hitchcock, when Dallas was 18th in scoring and 20th in shots on goal. Only twice last year did the Stars score at least 17 goals across a four-game stretch.They...

New-Look Forward Lines For Stars In First Road Game This Season

New-Look Forward Lines For Stars In First Road Game This Season

Head coach Jim Montgomery liked what he saw from shuffled lines in the third period on Saturday, so he’s starting the game with similar configurations. In the offseason, fans, media, and hockey insiders label teams as winners and losers based on the moves (and sometimes the non-moves) of each individual team. By all accounts, the Ottawa Senators were an overwhelming “loser” this offseason. There was the cyberbullying allegations levied at Mike Hoffman’s girlfriend by Erik Karlsson’s wife, and then the subsequent trades of both players to the San Jose Sharks (who flipped Hoffman to...

Stars’ Trio Tantalizes Against Ducks

Stars’ Trio Tantalizes Against Ducks

Down by three, head coach Jim Montgomery went to the line blender, and for one night, it seemed to work. One particular trio stood out as an interesting, promising experience, but is there more to the story? This started as an article about secondary scoring. Right about the time Connor Carrick’s one-timer bounced out of the back of the net, I decided the play of Jason Spezza, Valeri Nichushkin, and Alexander Radulov demanded at least a little attention. That trio came together for the first time this season with Dallas in a 3-0 hole. Though the scoreline was somewhat against the run of...

Monday Links: Stephen Johns Opens Up

The defender talks candidly about the headaches that have stalled the start of his season. Plus, Radulov marks a milestone, Team North America version 2018, and more. Dallas Stars fans have missed Stephen Johns, but maybe not as much as Johns has missed playing hockey. The young defender has yet to make his season debut as post-traumatic headaches keep him on the injured reserved list. Coping with the pain, and its consequences, has been an uphill battle – and he opened up about it to Stars writer Mark Stepneski in a new interview: “It’s been more mental. It’s hard to be in a good...
