Stars' last stand could come vs. Avs

FRISCO, Texas -- It's truly gone from bad to worse for the Dallas Stars. Not only are the Stars on a four-game losing streak heading into a Friday night visit from Central Division rivals the Colorado Avalanche, but Dallas has been outscored 22-12 over those past four defeats, the most recent setback coming on Tuesday night at the Winnipeg Jets.  And given his team's recent struggles...

Dallas looks to be sellers in NHL’s trade deadline market

The Dallas Stars currently sit seven points out of the last wild card spot in the West and 10 points behind Winnipeg which holds down the seventh spot.

Dallas Stars Should Sit Tight At Trade Deadline

Well, the Dallas Stars have one game left in the month of February. A month that has given Dallas a few highs, and then a whole lot of lows. The Stars are 4-6-2 this month and have lost the third period and overtime by a combined score of 24-9. That caused them to lose five games in which they were tied or winning going into the final frame. It has been this inability to play for...

Wings look to hand Stars sixth straight home loss of series

An injury to Tyler Seguin has left the Dallas Stars without their leading scorer as they attempt to jump multiple teams in the Western Conference playoff race. Ales Hemsky's return could provide a boost, though, as Dallas looks to avoid dropping a sixth straight home meeting with the Detroit Red Wings on Saturday night.

Can the Stars Afford Not to Re-Sign Erik Cole?

When Erik Cole was traded for Michael Ryder and a 3rd round pick in February 2013, eyebrows rose across the NHL. Ryder had been a goal scoring machine for the Dallas Stars, and although Cole matched his 35 goals in 2011-12, Cole was under-performing following the lockout and represented a much larger commitment than the […] The post Can the Stars Afford Not to Re-Sign Erik Cole...

It’s hard to believe that it’s taken Jamie Benn of the Dallas Stars six seasons to record his first hat trick, but finally Tuesday night he achieved the accomplishment.

David Backes perfectly summarizes his team’s loss to the Dallas Stars

You could describe the Blues’ loss to the Dallas Stars in a lot of different ways. None of them are positive. Even the team’s lone goal from Patrik Berglund was more humerus (of course Berglund scores in a game that’s well out of reach) than anything. David Backes summed up things nicely: Backes: "They skated all night and we kind of watched." #stlblues — Jeremy Rutherford...

Patience has been virtue of late for Stars' Lehtonen

FRISCO -- Ask any Dallas Stars fan for their thoughts on Kari Lehtonen's play for much of this season and you might get one of several different responses: a simple grit of the teeth, an expletive or two or a simple roll of the eyes. But over his last three starts, Lehtonen has played well, going 3-0-0 with a goals-against-average of 1.66 and a .957 save percentage. Lehtonen's last...

Video: Stars pull their goalie with 10 minutes left

The Dallas Stars were trailing 3-0 against the Colorado Avalanche with a little over 10 minutes remaining in the third period. During a stretch of 4-on-4 hockey, the Stars gambled and pulled their goalie in order to have a 5-on-4 advantage. The move paid off almost immediately with Jason Spezza scoring to make things 3-1. The Stars eventually fell 4-1, but it’s not often you see...

Tyler Seguin out 3-6 weeks with knee injury from dirty hit

DALLAS — Stars scoring leader Tyler Seguin will miss three to six weeks with a right knee injury sustained when he was checked below the waist on a hit coach Lindy Ruff called “a dirty, low play that I don’t like.” Seguin was helped off the ice Friday after the hit in the third period by Florida defenseman Dmitry Kulikov, who was ejected.

Will loss of Seguin ruin the Dallas Stars’ playoff chances?

Friday night’s win against the Florida Panthers was a Pyrrhic Victory for the Dallas Stars. Despite winning the game 2-0, the Stars lost forwards Ales Hemsky, Patrick Eaves, and Tyler Seguin to injury. Since the game, the Stars announced that Seguin and Eaves have been placed on injured reserve, while Hemsky appears to be out short-term with a lower-body injury. Eaves left the...

Dallas Stars: Tough Week Sums Up Season

The Dallas Stars added three of a possible eight points from this week’s games. A total that was disappointing for a variety of reasons. Looking at just the four teams on the slate, (Colorado, Tampa Bay, Buffalo, and New York) it wouldn’t be unreasonable to look for five or six points out of this week. But after watching the games, it is safe to say that seven points were tantalizingly...
