Stars Flop, Lose 5-0 to Washington Capitals

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports On Sergei Zubov night! Jamie Benn sacrificed teeth for this! After a successful road trip where they pulled 8 of 8 possible points, the Dallas Stars are back home tonight for the first game of a six-game homestand. Their opponents: the Washington Capitals, who at the start of the night were holding on to their wild card spot with the skin of their teeth. Though the Capitals are a strong team and had a great start to the season, they’ve gone 2-6-2 in 2022 and the Stars are straight off a four-game winning streak on the road. Things were...

Stars Look to Build on Successful Road Trip

Ed Mulholland-USA TODAY Sports Dallas returns to the AAC to host Washington tonight to start a six-game home stand What a difference one week makes. Last week we were trying to figure out what was wrong with the Stars road game. Today, they’re back at the AAC after a successful four game road trip. Successful because they won all four games. Not only did they win all four games but they outscored their opponents 18-10 during the four games. Once again the Stars offense starts with their top line: Pavelski, Hintz and Robertson. Those three lead the team in goal...

The Stars will (finally) retire No. 56 to the rafters tonight before the Washington Capitals game. Plus, the Oilers sign Evander Kane, the women national teams make it to NHL 22, and more. It’s finally here — tonight, the Dallas Stars retire Sergei Zubov’s No. 56 to the rafters. He will be the first defenseman in franchise history to earn the honors, and will join teammates Mike Modano and Jere Lehtinen: “I loved [playing with Zubov],” Modano said during a phone interview this week. “I thought he was talented and phenomenal and the way he played the game was nothing...

Dallas to Retire Sergei Zubov’s Number Tonight

Photo by Glenn James/NHLI via They’re pulling out all of the stops to honor one of the franchise’s iconic defenseman. Sergei Zubov will be the first defenseman in Dallas Stars history to have his number retired when the team lifts number 56 to the rafters tonight at the American Airlines Center. He joins a number of Stars greats in this honor: Mike Modano, Jere Lehtinen, Neal Broten, Bill Goldsworthy, and Bill Masterton. This was an honor that was supposed to happen in 2020. But as with many things, COVID-19 had different ideas. Zubov was a critical component of...

Thanks to a 5-1 win over the New Jersey Devils last night, the Dallas Stars went 4-0 on their most recent road trip.

Stars End Road Trip with Matchup against Devils

Photo by Jim McIsaac/ Three straight road wins have Dallas looking at a playoff position. They haven’t been pretty, but after a disastrous start on the road, its an improvement. Three games, three wins. The start of a successful road trip no matter how you slice it. Sure, the opposition has been hovering near the bottom of the standings. None of the victories have been all that convincing. But still, its six points earned out of six points available. Tuesday night in New Jersey, the Dallas Stars have the opportunity to turn that into eight points for the road trip....

Stars Victorious in Philly, Drop Flyers 3-1

Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports It was a boring game, but a victorious one. After back-to-back road wins to close out last week, the Dallas Stars are in the chilly state of Pennsylvania to take on the Philadelphia Flyers. The Flyers season is currently in free fall, a loss tonight would tie them with their longest losing streak at 12 games, the first time since the 1998-99 season. The last time the Flyers won it was a whole different calendar year. Now, this is partly due to injuries, as they actually skated a defenseman at forward tonight due to the lack of depth. The...

Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports Dallas visits the city of Brother Love for a battle with the Flyers After all the talk last week about the Dallas Stars difference between the road and home, they go out and win two games away from Dallas. Even though it was against the Buffalo Sabres and the Detroit Red Wings, I’m going to praise the efforts. With those two wins, they almost matched their season total of road wins. Dallas had only won four games prior to those two. The next two road games should be winnable as well and it starts tonight. The Philadelphia Flyers are in...

Over the Dallas Stars’ past three games, they’ve had had 13 goals for and 13 goals against. Two of those wins ended up in victories, but don’t expect these high-scoring games to be a new norm: “Listen, we’re certainly not happy giving up four goals, but we’re certainly happy that we scored five,” Stars coach Rick Bowness said. “We have to tighten it up.
