Stars' Trade Deadline: All-in or Fold?

February 12th, 2020 It’s like playing a game of Texas Hold ‘Em in the Wild West as the Dallas Stars approach the trade deadline. Country singer Kenny Rogers once sang “you gotta know when to hold ‘em, know when to fold ‘em.”  The franchise is teetering on an opportunity to do real damage this postseason...

New Jersey Devils

NEWARK, N.J. — Joe Pavelski scored 1:39 into overtime to lift the Dallas Stars over the New Jersey Devils 3-2 Saturday night. Mattias Janmark broke into the Devils zone and took the initial shot, and Pavelski knocked the rebound past goalie Louis Domingue. Jason Dickinson and Joel Kiviranta also scored for Dallas and Ben Bishop made 29 saves as the Stars improved to 3-4-0 in their last seven games as they battle to hold a playoff spot in the Western Conference. Kevin Rooney and Nico Hischier scored for New Jersey while Domingue stopped 28 shots. New Jersey, well out of the playoff chase in the Eastern Conference, has picked up points in its last three contests (1-0-2). Rooney scored the only goal of the first period, an unassisted short-handed tally at 13:09. Blake Coleman set up the score by disrupting the Stars’ breakout in their defensive zone. That sent the puck bouncing to Rooney, who hammered it home from the high slot. New Jersey Devils center Kevin Rooney...

Toronto Maple Leafs

DALLAS — Mitchell Marner set up the first two goals and the Toronto Maple Leafs kept up their high-scoring ways on the road to beat the Dallas Stars 5-3 on Wednesday night. Marner’s fancy passes to Auston Matthews and Zach Hyman started Toronto on the way to its seventh win in the past eight road games. The Maple Leafs never trailed and set a franchise record with four or more goals in eight straight games away from home. Tyson Barrie and William Nylander also scored for Toronto. Andreas Johnsson added an empty-net goal with three seconds left, and Frederik Andersen made 31 saves. The Maple Leafs moved closer to playoff position. They pulled even in points (61) with third-place Florida in the Atlantic Division and Carolina in the second wild-card spot in the Eastern Conference but have played more games than either team. Alexander Radulov scored two goals and Denis Gurianov had one for the Stars. Ben Bishop stopped 29 shots. Alexander Radulov, Dallas Stars (Amy...

Injury Report

FRISCO, Texas — Stephen Johns sometimes wondered if he would play hockey again while missing nearly 22 months with headaches that may or may not have been related to concussions. The Dallas Stars defenceman just didn't appreciate it when doctors suggested as much. “That just kind of pissed me off because it wasn't their decision to make,” Johns said after a week-plus break for Dallas that came after his first game since March 29, 2018. “Obviously there were times when I thought I would never play again, but that was probably when it was the lowest of my lows. Obviously I climbed out of it. In the back of my mind I knew I wasn't done yet and I still had a lot to prove.” The Stars didn't have much to celebrate on the ice in a 7-0 loss to Minnesota in Johns' return Jan 18. They liked the ending of his first home game a lot more, a 3-2 overtime win over Tampa Bay on Monday night. Stephen Johns (Amy Irvin / The Hockey Writers) Either way, there's still an...

Dallas Stars

Goal 14 for No. 14 was exactly what the doctor ordered for the Dallas Stars on Wednesday night. Jamie Benn’s game-winning overtime goal got the Stars back in the win column after a messy week going into the All Star break. Monday night against the Tampa Bay Lightning was a big night for the captain - he scored two goals that gave his team leads. It was a performance that the Stars need to see more often from Benn. “Great athletes have the ability to slow the game down in their mind and take what’s there,” coach Rick Bowness said. “ I think Jamie did a great job of being composed on both goals.” “I was lucky to knock that puck down,” Benn said “ Tonight was just one of those nights where a couple of dekes worked.” A few dekes or not, Benn had a big opportunity to win and he found a way to get it done. Now for the Stars to take those next steps to become a true power heading into the playoffs,...
