Stars Look For Win After Rough Patch

December 2nd, 2019 Sunday was another tough game for the Dallas Stars as they lost their third-straight game against the Minnesota Wild. It was a game that had a fitting conclusion — if you’re a Wild fan — as Mikko Koivu scored the game-winning goal in a shootout. While it is another frustrating conclusion for...

Dallas Stars

The Dallas Stars are the hottest team in the NHL. After tying their franchise winning streak record of seven games on Monday, they have the attention of the hockey world. While experts may look to the ice to explain the Stars’ turnaround, they need to also look off the ice.  Dallas is beating teams before they even put their skates on. Head coach Jim Montgomery talked to the media about the team’s win streak Monday after defeating the Vegas Golden Knights 4-2: “We don’t want to get too excited and pat ourselves on the back,” Montgomery said. “We got to get better, because there’s certain parts of our game that need to.” https://twitter.com/DallasStars/status/1199191730064637953 That sounds like something New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick would say, but Montgomery’s comments are a reflection of the locker room. The Stars are taking the same approach as several other winning teams have done in the past. They aren't...

Dallas Stars

The Dallas Stars have been on quite the roll. They are on a 12-game point streak and are 14-1-1 over the last 15 games. While the Stars are flying high, there is one issue that the coaching staff, and most likely general manager Jim Nill, will need to address: they have far too many forwards.  Now, this issue is one that most teams would like to have, but there are only so many spots in the lineup for effective forwards. The issue came to light in the absence of Roope Hintz and Mattias Janmark.  Janmark missed four games before returning to the lineup with a goal during a 5-3 win over the Winnipeg Jets on Nov. 21. Hintz—who leads the Stars with 10 goals in 17 games—was back on the ice Saturday against the Chicago Blackhawks.  Hintz, like Janmark, registered a goal on his return. While having Hintz back in the lineup should boost Dallas’ offense, the team’s winning percentage is below 50% when he is on the...

Through the Dallas Stars’ hot streak, the Victory Green crew has been able to rely on the exceptional play of their first line of Jamie Benn, Justin Dowling, and Tyler Seguin. With Mattias Janmark and Roope Hintz returning to the team, Dallas looked like it was adding more firepower to its offense. However, the surging Stars received some bad news Saturday, finding out Dowling suffered an upper-body injury.  Dowling’s injury occurred during the second period of their weekend match-up against the Chicago Blackhawks. The Stars are hoping Dowling’s injury isn’t significant because he has been a major contributor to their offense. In his previous five outings, Dowling recorded four points. This has been something of a breakout season for the 29-year-old Canadian.

He has also said that playing with...

  Hockey fans know that North Stars owner Norm Green earned his infamy by moving the franchise from puck-loving Minnesota to Texas, where high school football draws more interest than the NHL. Fewer know that Green had already flipped the team’s cherished “N” logo over the glass... August 9th, 2017
