Dallas Stars Welcome Blue Jackets to Town

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports Stars and Blue Jackets tangle at the American Airlines Center in another central division matchup. While the Dallas Stars decided to stand pat at the trade deadline earlier this week, the Columbus Blue Jackets seem to have waived the white flag on the season. More on that in a minute, though. So it appears that the Dallas Stars have forgotten how to win a game past the 60 minute mark. The record past regulation is baffling this year. After Tuesday’s overtime loss to the Florida Panthers, the Stars now have 12 losses that have come past...

Stargazing, Episode 127: Make That Move

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports The Stars mostly stood pat at the trade deadline. Without Bishop and Radulov, can they still make their move on a playoffs spot? Wes and Rob examine the case. The Dallas Stars can’t win a Stanley Cup playoffs spot in the next six games. However, they can lose one. It will all come down to whether they can shake off whatever bad mojo they’re dealing with and make that move to shut down the suffering Columbus Blue Jackets and Detroit Red Wings. But honest-to-Pete elites Ben Bishop and Alexander Radulov are done for the season, and depth...

Wednesday Links: Luckless Stars Chalk Up Another OT Loss

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports But is it “luck” that they can’t seem to win in regulation, either? Plus, the Mighty Ducks are back (on screen), the Kraken may have been the biggest TDL players, and more. The Dallas Stars had some legitimate bad luck in last night’s 3-2 overtime loss to the Florida Panthers. (Radko Gudas, please pick up the white courtesy phone.) But being by far the worst in the league in OT and the shootout is a distinction they have to deal with on different terms. Stars senior staff writer Mike Heika took a look at the deciding factors in last...

Penalty In Overtime Ends With Stars’ 12th Loss Past Regulation

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports Maybe don’t take blatant penalties in overtime when you already struggle to win past regulation. If a shotless first five-plus minutes of the Dallas Stars and Florida Panthers hockey game forced you to turn the channel or call up Criminal Minds on Netflix early tonight, you missed one wild third period. There wasn’t much to write home about for much of the first 20 minutes. For the Stars, they looked like a team that had played a game between these two teams’ last meeting on Saturday in a matinee showcase in Dallas. The Panthers had a...

The NHL trade deadline has come and gone, with the Dallas Stars deciding to sit out of the action. At the end of the day, General Manager Jim Nill simply felt that despite their precarious playoff status, selling wasn’t the right move to make: “We talked to teams, and you have to make a decision. Do we have a team bound for the playoffs or are you going to get some kind of...

Stars Claim D Sami Vatanen Off Waivers

Stars Claim D Sami Vatanen Off Waivers

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports Important context to the waiver claim is the injury to Andrej Sekera as well as the status of Joel Hanley. The Dallas Stars claimed right-handed defenseman Sami Vatanen off waivers today. The 29-year-old veteran had been playing for the New Jersey Devils this season on a contract that expires this summer and carried a cap hit of $2 million, per Cap Friendly. In 30 games played this season, he’s scored two goals and six points and is a +2. Vatanen is likely a depth move to shore up the blueline with Andrej Sekera going out of last...

Trade Deadline Day: How To Watch Coverage, Latest On Oleksiak Rumors

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports Hope you’re ready for silly season. Today is the NHL’s trade deadline day, and the Dallas Stars may or may not be players. It’s kind of hard to peg which direction they’re headed. They’ve got 16 games left in the season, and are six points behind the Nashville Predators with three games in hand. They’ll also need to leap over the Chicago Blackhawks (two points behind, two games in hand for Dallas) and make sure the Columbus Blue Jackets don’t go on some heater (three points ahead, three games in hand for Dallas).

Stars Gain A Point, But Overtime Nightmare Continues Against The Predators

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports They’ve earned five of six available points since Thursday. But their inability to put the Preds away could haunt them. To twist an old cliché, the Dallas Stars don’t need to run as fast as the Tampa Bay Lightning, or even the Carolina Hurricanes. They just need to run faster than the Nashville Predators. With the Stanley Cup playoffs race tightening up, the Victory Green Gang needed to take advantage of every matchup that could swing the competition in their favor. But even with three games in hand, a punishing schedule and...

Dallas Stars with a Chance to Move Closer to Nashville Tonight

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports Stars can move within three points of the Predators in the Central Division Standings with a regulation win tonight. What a difference 24 hours can make. Yesterday I was talking about how the Dallas Stars were seven points out of the playoffs with three games in hand against the Nashville Predators. Fast forward 24 hours. Thanks to a dominating win over the Florida Panthers and the Tampa Bay Lightning shutting out the Predators, Dallas is now five points out of the playoffs with three games in hand.

Stars Offense Strikes Early, Downs Panthers For Win

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports Matinee win! A big two points were earned by the Dallas Stars thanks in large part to a barrage of goals early in the game. Jason Robertson continued to make his case for Calder consideration with a snipe right past Sergei Bobrovsky just one minute into the game. Then Justin Dowling setup Joel L’Esperance just 49 seconds later on a cross-ice feed that found daylight under a sprawling Panthers defender to give the Stars a 2-0 lead less than two minutes into the game. After that initial sucker-punch of offense, the two teams started to...
