Wednesday Links: Road Trip Sweep

Photo by Rich Graessle/ After struggling on the road all season, the Stars went a perfect 4-0 on their latest trip. Plus, injury updates, Aaron Dell makes headlines for the wrong reasons, and more. Thanks to a 5-1 win over the New Jersey Devils last night, the Dallas Stars went 4-0 on their most recent road trip. They’re now currently in a playoff position based on points (though not points percentage), giving a breath of optimism for the team: “People after that Montreal game wrote us off,” Stars coach Rick Bowness said before the game. “It was one game and you...

Stars End Road Trip with Matchup against Devils

Photo by Jim McIsaac/ Three straight road wins have Dallas looking at a playoff position. They haven’t been pretty, but after a disastrous start on the road, its an improvement. Three games, three wins. The start of a successful road trip no matter how you slice it. Sure, the opposition has been hovering near the bottom of the standings. None of the victories have been all that convincing. But still, its six points earned out of six points available. Tuesday night in New Jersey, the Dallas Stars have the opportunity to turn that into eight points for the road trip....

Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports Is the answer to the Dallas Stars’ problems just a little more “Dallas Stars hockey”? Plus, Keith Yandle’s iron-man milestone, Star Wars Night returns in Austin, and more. The version of the Dallas Stars that went out on the current northeastern jaunt seems to have figured out how to win on the road. The team takes on the New Jersey Devils tonight after three consecutive wins on the trot, including last night’s 3-1 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers. Stars senior staff writer Mike Heika sat down to write about what’s...

Stars Victorious in Philly, Drop Flyers 3-1

Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports It was a boring game, but a victorious one. After back-to-back road wins to close out last week, the Dallas Stars are in the chilly state of Pennsylvania to take on the Philadelphia Flyers. The Flyers season is currently in free fall, a loss tonight would tie them with their longest losing streak at 12 games, the first time since the 1998-99 season. The last time the Flyers won it was a whole different calendar year. Now, this is partly due to injuries, as they actually skated a defenseman at forward tonight due to the lack of depth. The...

Dallas Stars Look to Win their Third Straight Road Game

Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports Dallas visits the city of Brother Love for a battle with the Flyers After all the talk last week about the Dallas Stars difference between the road and home, they go out and win two games away from Dallas. Even though it was against the Buffalo Sabres and the Detroit Red Wings, I’m going to praise the efforts. With those two wins, they almost matched their season total of road wins. Dallas had only won four games prior to those two. The next two road games should be winnable as well and it starts tonight. The Philadelphia Flyers are in...

Darren Yamashita-USA TODAY Sports High scoring games? Not my Dallas Stars. Plus, possible John Klingberg trades, Jordan Subban is the subject of a racist taunt, and more. Over the Dallas Stars’ past three games, they’ve had had 13 goals for and 13 goals against. Two of those wins ended up in victories, but don’t expect these high-scoring games to be a new norm: “Listen, we’re certainly not happy giving up four goals, but we’re certainly happy that we scored five,” Stars coach Rick Bowness said. “We have to tighten it up. We’re trying to find ways to...

Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports The Stars’ crucial four-game road trip is off to a 2-0 start. Because of the streakiness and inconsistency of the Dallas Stars, they set out on a four-game road trip that has become a crucial point in which the team desperately needs to collect some points. After falling down early to the Buffalo Sabres 2-0 on Saturday night, they orchestrated a comeback to walk away with a 5-4 regulation win. They then traveled to take on the Detroit Red Wings on Friday night. The start was better this game. They actually scored first thanks to Ryan...

Why does that somehow still feel dull and uncomfortable? The thing with Dallas is, it’s never just one game.

Stars Pivotal Road Trip Continues Against Red Wings

Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports Another game against an NHL bottom feeder. Another chance to end road woes. The current Dallas Stars may not be the lockdown defensive juggernaut that the team has been over the last few seasons. The team has given up nine goals in their last two games, and that doesn’t include the seven goals allowed last weekend against the Florida Panthers. Thursday night against the Buffalo Sabres, the team kept pumping rubber at the net, and in spite of a few more pings off the iron, they were able to pull out a 5-4 road win, their first of the new...

It wasn’t pretty, but the Dallas Stars managed to snap their losing streak with a 5-4 win over the Buffalo Sabres, thanks to Jason Robertson, Tyler Seguin, and Mark Pysyk. The Stars fell in an early hole as Rasmus Dahlin and Jack Quinn scored within the first few minutes. However, Robertson, fresh back from injury, would cut the deficit in half later in the period with the Stars’ first power play goal of the evening....

The Stars Start a Four-Game Road Trip Tonight in Buffalo

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports Dallas hopes to reverse their luck on the road tonight in Buffalo Ok! I confess. I’ve been trying to make excuses as to why the Stars will or should win games. After Tuesday’s loss, though, I’ve realized that perhaps the Dallas Stars aren’t as good as I want them to be. Let’s face it, though. I’m not the only one. We’re less than two years from them playing in the Stanley Cup Final. Since then, they’ve missed the playoffs and this year they’re hovering around .500. As I wrote the other day, Dallas shouldn’t have had any...
