Wayne Simmonds is making the trade from three years ago pay in full.
Simmonds scored two more goals, his second proving to be the decider in a 4-2 win over the Dallas Stars on Thursday. The goals were his 22nd and 23rd of the season, putting him second to Claude Giroux for the team lead in goals and points.
It was the fourth straight win for the Flyers, who are now 11-2-1 since Feb. 1.
The Islanders play the 3rd of their 6 game road trip tonight in Dallas against the Stars coming off a 2-1 overtime win on Friday night in Colorado. This is the second and final meeting between the two teams this season as the Islanders defeated the Stars 7-3 last Monday night at Nassau Coliseum.
On a night that was called “the greatest night of my life” by the new first time dad Kyle Okposo, his teammate and good friend John Tavares had one of the best nights statistically of his brief NHL career.
The Hawks finished off the Canada portion of their Circus road trip with a 3-2 SO win against the Dallas Stars, moving their record to 5-1-0 on the circus road trip. Corey Crawford stayed in strong in net on a night that the Hawks turned over the puck over far more often than usual, stopping 25 shots and denying 10 shooters in the shootout and earning his 100th NHL win in dramatic fashion.
The Stars got the first goal of the night after a bad play and miscommunic...
Five different Blackhawks players scored, including Andrew Shaw with the game-winner, in a 5-2 Chicago victory over the Dallas Stars Monday night.
The Blackhawks (33-5-4) win was their third over Dallas (21-18-3) this year, sweeping the season series. The win was also Chicago’s sixth straight and moved them 11 points ahead of the idle Anaheim Ducks for the top spot in the Western Conference.
While Chicago was cementing its playoff position, Dallas was left wanting. The loss kept the Stars two points back of Detroit for the eighth playoff spot in the West, each team with just six games remaining. Columbus also sits two points ahead of Dallas, albeit with only...
Preview: The Kings (22-13-4; 48 points) head to Dallas to take on the Stars(18-17-3; 39 points) tonight at 5:30.While the Kings are currently in fourth place in the Western Conference the Sharks and Wild are just behind in the standings putting pressure on Los Angeles. There are nine games left in the season and even a playoff spot is not guaranteed. The Stars are in tenth place, nine points back from the Kings.
Tonight’s game will be the fourth of five contests between the teams. Dallas won both games in Los Angeles: On March 7th they won 5-2 and 2-0 on March 21st. The Kings won the most recent game in Dallas with a 3-2 victory on March 31t.
The Flames will host the Dallas Stars for the first and only time this season as they hope to get things on track after a less than stellar first ten games of the season. The Stars come into the Saddledome tonight, on the backend of a back-to-back after beating the Oilers 4-1 last night in Edmonton.
Finally, the Dallas Stars have financial freedom. Tom Gaglardi has given GM Joe Nieuwendyk the ability to spend money—and did he ever. He dished out pretty good money to sign some free agents, and pick up a few assets over the summer. Let's take a look at what happened after another heartbreaking season.
In with the new: Jaromir Jagr - one year, $4.5 million Ray Whitney - two years, $9 million Derek Roy - acquired in Ott trade Cody Eakin - acquired in Ribeiro trade Aaron Rome - three years, $4.5 million
Out with the old: Sheldon Souray - to Anaheim Mike Ribeiro - to Was...
It is a pretty frustrating time to be a Dallas Stars fan at the moment. A few weeks ago, things were looking bright as the Stars sat on top of the Pacific division for a while and a playoff spot looked highly likely. However, they finished the 2011/12 season with 5 losses, resulting in no playoff hockey for 3 straight seasons.
I can’t help but feel that it is time for a bit of change in Dallas. Brenden Morrow has done great things for the franchise, but this season has showed why his NHL career is coming to an end. He has picking up more and more injuries and has lost the great physical edge that he brought to the Stars' game for many years. Morrow still holds a decent val...
