Though the dynamic duo of Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin has carried the Dallas Stars offensively for most of the season, more support was needed for the team’s bigger goals. The Stars needed more production from the rest of the team if they had any hope at making the playoffs and a possible run in the postseason.
Finally, depth scoring has returned for the Stars. In fact, it has come back in a big way and it is no coincidence that the Stars find themselves in a playoff spot right now because of it. Over the past three games, the formula has been flipped. Benn and Seguin’s production have slowed down, but the other three lines have stepped up.
