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...

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...

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

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...

Afterwords: Stars Respond to John Gibson Robbery with Federal Offense

Afterwords: Stars Respond to John Gibson Robbery with Federal Offense

The Dallas Stars may have broken John Gibson John Gibson may or may not have been physically injured in the second period, but he most certainly was broken in a deeper, more psychological fashion. *** If you’re going up against one of the best goaltenders of the past two seasons, you’re going to feel unlucky. That’s about where the Stars were after 30 minutes, when a 3-0 lead had accumulated in spite of so much good work, so many chances. And that’s not hyperbole. Jamie Benn had a golden chance from the slot, Brett Ritchie had hit a post, Jason Spezza might have tipped a Radulov...

Stars Use Power Play, Historic Second Period To Overcome Ducks

Stars Use Power Play, Historic Second Period To Overcome Ducks

That game started out looking like the Stars would be on the losing end of the 5-3 final score, to be honest. After the loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs Tuesday night, the Dallas Stars needed to tighten up in a few areas: winning one-on-one puck battles, aggression on both sides of the puck, and not letting the net-front battles get away from them. At first it seemed that the Stars were in for more of the same kind of issues, as Anaheim jumped out to an early two-goal lead off some defensive miscues by the five-man units Dallas had on the ice. “I don’t think anyone liked how we played...

Stars Have First Bounceback Opportunity Of Season As Ducks Come To Town

Previewing the Dallas Stars match-up with the Anaheim Ducks when the puck drops at 7 PM CDT tonight. Going 82-0 obviously isn’t a thing that happens in the NHL. So the Dallas Stars won’t be the first team to accomplish that record. After starting the season with back-to-back wins, the Toronto Maple Leafs put up a 7-spot on them for their first loss of the year. The key will be avoiding long losing streaks - something the Stars can accomplish today when the Anaheim Ducks come to town. The Ducks have started the season with a 3-0-1 record, probably surprising people who expected the Ducks...

Weekly Roundup: Polák and Honka, Kittens, and De Facto Captains

Let’s take a bullet train through some of the news over this past week Welcome to the Roundup. Every week(ish), I’m going to be attempting a quick tour back through the major and minor points of interest that I don’t get to in other pieces. It’s the rootinest, tootinest roundup since, like, every other roundup.
