Stars Goaltending

Thursday gave us a full schedule across the National Hockey League and it was a very good night for goaltenders. Some of the top performances included a pair of shutouts and a rare goalie goal! Rinne Scores Versus Blackhawks The Nashville Predators were in Chicago last night to take on the Blackhawks in a big game as the two teams were separated by just one point when the puck dropped. New head coach John Hynes picked up his first win with the Predators in a 5-2 victory, but that is not what this game will be remembered for. In the final minute of play, goaltender Pekka Rinne retrieved the puck from behind his own net and lofted towards the vacated Blackhawks’ cage. When the puck finished its journey, Rinne became the 12th goaltender in National Hockey League history to score a goal. The excited voice you heard in the highlight was that of former Predators goaltender and current color analyst Chris Mason, who scored a goal during his playing days in Nashville....

Injury Report

FRISCO, Texas — Dallas Stars defenceman Stephen Johns could be nearing a return after missing a season and a half because of issues with headaches. The Stars loaned Johns to the Texas Stars of the American Hockey League on Wednesday for a conditioning assignment. The club didn't indicate how long he would be in the minors. Johns missed all of last season with what were called post-traumatic headaches. The 27-year-old played his first three NHL seasons with the Stars after coming over from Chicago in a trade. A second-round pick by the Blackhawks in 2010, Johns debuted with the Stars five years later in the first season after the trade. Johns played a career-high 75 games in the most recent season he was active, 2017-18. Stephen Johns has added an extra element on the Stars' blue line this season. (Amy Irvin / The Hockey Writers) Johns played 14 regular-season games as a rookie in 2015-16, then was part of all 13 playoff games. Dallas lost in Game 7 to St. Louis in...

Stars Goaltending

Arguably the most important position in sports, a goalie can steal a game or playoff series. A goalie can also break the hearts of loyal fans and cost a coach their job. An NHL goalie is the ultimate last line of defense.  There has been a lot of talk about the Dallas Stars goaltending over the past few seasons. And today we review the Top Three All-Time Goalies in Dallas Stars' franchise history. A few qualifiers before we move forward with the All-Time Top Three. First, "All-Time" means we will also consider former Minnesota North Stars goaltenders.

The Stars signed Belfour as a free agent on July 2, 1997. Belfour was coming off a poor...
