Stars Dominate Blues, Win 4-1

Joe Puetz-USA TODAY Sports And Jason Robertson extends his point streak. The Dallas Stars visited the state of Missouri for their first game (this season) against long time division rival the St. Louis Blues. The Stars have been having a much better season than the Blues, who are currently outside of the playoff bubble. Scott Wedgewood was a last minute decision for Dallas, he is in net tonight for Jake Oettinger, who was under the weather. First Period Listen, the first period was less exciting than a game between vision rivals really should be, but despite not...

Plus, the quarter-season postseason awards, Stars prospects keep on being awesome, and more. The Dallas Stars will have to go through the Colorado Avalanche to hang onto their No. 1 ranking in the Central Division. That much seems apparent, and it will only become more pressing as what may be the most injured roster in the #MDK begins to return to full health. So what can we learn from the past week’s Stars-Avs miniseries? Plenty as it turns out. Beat...

Stars Score Five Goals in Third Period, Defeat Blackhawks 6-4

Photo by Glenn James/NHLI via This team, man. This team. The Dallas Stars playing the Chicago Blackhawks at home, the night before Thanksgiving, in 2022, had all the stink of a trap game. It seemed inevitable that this woebegone version of the Hawks would curdle the holiday gravy of the ascendant Stars, especially with Jason Dickinson lining up against his former team. Because it’s the Central Division, and it’s the law, or something. But if you’ve ever actually seen a Stars game, you know better than to tune out before the very end. And with two goals from the...

Photo by Matthew Pearce/Icon Sportswire via Why do statistical models hate the Stars? Wes and Mark ask the important questions before the turkey coma sets in. Sure, the Dallas Stars have a good record. They have some great players, and they can beat you in a couple of different ways. But are they actually good? For real? Because some stats suggest they’re...kind of middle-of-the-road-ish. The Victory Green Gang leads the Central Division (still, at this posting) in points, and it also leads the league in shooting percentage. But there’s a lot going on under the...

Also, is an image of Patrick Kane in Victory Green too far fetched? When the Stars signed Colin Miller during the final hours of the first day of free agency in July, it came with a bittersweet feeling. While Miller was considered a serviceable defenseman in the NHL, this signing all but confirmed the Stars would not be re-signing John Klingberg and instead let him walk for nothing as an unrestricted free agent.

Dallas Stars Daily Links: Is Dallas a Cup Contender?

Photo by Matthew Pearce/Icon Sportswire via Yes. Plus, Robertson continues to dominate, early season trends, and more. For the last several years (at least), the Dallas Stars have had the mindset of “just make the playoffs.” That it doesn’t matter if it’s as a runaway division leader or by squeaking in as a Wild Card — you just need to make the playoffs and you have a shot at the Stanley Cup. Reality, however, shows that the teams that actually win the Cup are almost always members of the so called “Cup Contenders” tier. But luckily for Dallas, they just...
