Nashville convincingly beaten by Stars

Just three points separated the Dallas Stars and Nashville Predators going into their game last night played at the Bridgestone Arena in Tennessee. The Stars were looking to bounce back after they lost were  beaten by the Red Wings 5-4 on Wednesday night in an absolute thriller at the American Airlines Center. Nashville welcomed back their captain Shea Weber into the line-up after missing four games with concussion.

With a few changes made to their lines, the Stars started the game well and took a one goal lead in the first after a great bit of skill from Mike Ribeiro, who danced by several defenders before slotting it past Pekka Rinne with four minutes gone in the first. The P...

Strange Game Equals Away Game Win for Wings

The Detroit Red Wings have a strange win against the Dallas Stars, a final score of 5 to 4.

First Period: As usual, the first goal came from the Wings. Zetterberg grabbed a rebound from Hudler but instead of sending it to the net again, he passed it to the open Filppula. Filppula pretty much had an open net. Red Wings were up 1 to 0. The next goal came from the same line; Hudler redirected a shot from Zetterberg into the net. The goal was looked over for review, but there was no kicking motion from Hudler’s redirect. Only 50 seconds later, the Stars’ Eriksson scored their first goal. The period ended positively with another goal scored ...

Red Wings continue playing on the road against Stars

It's the second of four meetings between the Red Wings and the Stars, who both sit in a tight Western Conference. Wings came away with a 5-2 victory at the Joe in November, but both teams are 6-4-0 in their last ten games. 

Both teams perform better at home than on the road, but the Wings are working on improving in that department. They only have two losses at home in regulation, compared to six for the Stars. 

The Stars are already sitting at tenth in the conference and will have quite a challenge to overcome tonight as they go against Jimmy Howard, who earned his fourth shut out of the season against St. Louis on Saturday. Howard leads all goalies in the NHL w...

Awesome Stars dominate Stanley Cup Holders

With a very poor 4-1 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets on Thursday night, a lot of Stars fans weren’t expecting a lot from their game against the Bruins two days later who were on a very hot streak. With a fierce rivalry and a packed out American Airlines Center, it was set to be an awesome encounter between two good teams.

The Stars came out of the blocks very fast and played some great hockey early on and taking just three minutes to take a one goal lead as Loui Eriksson wristed one upstairs on the powerplay. Despite the fast start from the Stars, the reigning Stanley Cup champions hit back halfway through the period through a Tyler Seguin wrist shot that just squeezed past ...

Stars look to bounce back against Blue Jackets

The Columbus Blue Jackets (9-22-5) travel to the American Airlines Center tonight to take on the Dallas Stars (20-14-1) in a Western Conference match up. Columbus comes into the game sat rock bottom of the NHL whilst the Dallas Stars are looking for two points to try and solidify a spot in the playoff picture.

Columbus and Dallas have already met twice this season in which the Stars took the points on both occasions. Dallas' new owner Tom Galardi has brought in a new $9 a ticket deal to try and boost crowd numbers, which have been poor of late. The new deal has definitely had an impact at the AAC as crowd numbers have increased as well as the atmosphere to cheer on the players. ...

Bachman's recent success brings reward

When Kari Lehtonen limped towards the locker rooms in November, Stars fans were very concerned about what would happen to their results without him. With a very inconsistent Andrew Raycroft waiting in the wings to steal the spotlight, the Stars really needed to find a goalie that would see them through the tough period without Lehtonen.

The Stars had to give Raycroft a try for a few games but he struggled a lot and showed that he wasn’t capable of taking on the starting role successfully. This lead to a lot of fans demanding him to be replaced by Richard Bachman, who had been playing pretty well for the Texas Stars in the AHL. Bachman stole the headlines with a shu...

Nystrom Finds Redemption

Coming into the 2011-12 season, then-Minnesota Wild forward Eric Nystrom had plenty to prove. The son of four-time Stanley Cup-winning Bobby Nystrom, "Mr. Islander" himself, had underachieved in his career, and had never found a fit with any of his linemates. He found himself off to an aggressive start in the preseason—however, that aggression put him into hot water.

In a preseason game against the Edmonton Oilers, the puck was cleared down the ice by Clayton Stoner, and Nystrom carelessly tangled up with Edmonton's rookie defenseman Taylor Fedun, subsequently breaking Fedun...

Blues see off resurgent Stars

It was a first period struggle for the Stars, as they looked tired and showed poor puck retention early on. With just over eight minutes gone they found themselves one goal down as Chris Stewart squeezed one past Richard Bachman from a very tight angle to register a powerplay goal for the Blues. St.Louis dominated the first frame in front of a loud crowd at the Scottrade Center. The Stars would have been pleased to hear the buzzer to end the first frame after recording just five shots on Jaroslav Halak.

Whatever Dallas coach Glen Gulutzan said to his men in the changing room it definitely had an impact as the Stars came out a different team with more speed and physicality to their g...

Stars look to improve road form in St.Louis.

The Dallas Stars (20-13-1) travel to the Scottrade Center tonight to take on the St.Louis Blues (20-10-4) in what should be a great contest as the Stars look to make the stop spot in the Pacific theirs with a win. Dallas will also be looking to record their 100th win against the Blues in NHL hockey.

The Stars come into the game following a comprehensive five goal to three victory over the tired Nashville Predators in Texas on Friday night, behind 34 saves by the very impressive rookie Richard Bachman. Despite the Stars main goaltender Kari Lehtonen's return being just around the corner after a groin injury, Bachman gets the start tonight as he looks to carry on his impressive st...

Flyers-Stars Gameday: The Return of Giroux?

Times have been tough for the Philadelphia Flyers.

After losing almost two lines worth of players and dropping two-consecutive games following a seven-game winning streak, the team has hit a rough patch.

However, things may start to brighten up for the down on their luck club.

During the team’s practice on Tuesday, it was reported that Claude Giroux was taking regular shifts with Jaromir Jagr and Scott Hartnell.

Some have even gone as far as to say that he may be in the lineup as early as tonight.
