This here’s Matt Hendricks and he’s making that there face because he took a hockey puck to the Johnson while defending against a Howitzer of a slap shot.
Nothing really went right in Dallas’s 6-2 loss to the Rangers, but it was a particularly bad night for the Stars’, uh, stars. Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin were benched with 12 minutes left, after being on the ice for three straight Rangers goals.
At 10-3-0 after last night’s 5-3 win over the Bruins, the Dallas Stars are off to the hottest start in franchise history. It’s a year later than everyone expected, but unlike last season’s slow start, everything is clicking this time around. Offseason additions Patrick Sharp, Johnny Oduya, and especially goalie Antti…
Stars captain Jamie Benn dished out a team-high 52 assists last season. He is a generous teammate and a selfish lover:
Dallas Stars defenseman Patrik Nemeth was just minding his own business when Jiri Hudler fired the puck right at Nemeth’s face, at which point the damn thing got caught in Nemeth’s visor. I don’t this is exactly how visors are supposed to protect people from eye injuries, but, hey, whatever works!
Today in "headlines I never thought I'd write."
You know what it's like. You're just trying to set up camp in the corner, maybe get the puck and then fire a pass in front of the goal, and the damn referee keeps getting in your way. My favorite part of this video is when the ref yells "I'm not moving!" Exactly, dude, that's why Tyler Seguin is mad at you!
Last night, Dallas's Antoine Roussel wiped an entire pane of glass with Phil Kessel's tumbling form. We love a good, clean hit that sends a player flying like someone messed with the sliders in a video game.
The Dallas Stars defenseman scored this thunderous goal to take a 1-0 lead over the Oilers in the first period tonight. If you look closely at about 27 seconds, you can see that the puck is actually on its side when Klingberg slaps it. This leads the puck to move much like a knuckleball would, and fool Oilers goalie …
Dallas Stars owner Tom Gaglardi was found guilty of two counts of harmful alteration of a fish habitat, Kamloops This Week reports today. And a former employee testified that Gaglardi told him to throw a computer drive in a lake when authorities started investigating. That was a very bad idea.
Dallas Stars center Tyler Seguin hosted a charity golf tournament, and at one point, he put a golf ball on a tee on his crotch and let a guy take a swing at it. What more is there to say? Wait, Tyler, did it tickle?
Rich Peverley, Lindy Ruff, and team-affiliated doctors appeared at a press conference this afternoon to answer questions about his Monday collapse, and to announce that Peverley's season is over.
When Rich Peverley collapsed, everyone—from the players who immediately summoned help, to the medical staff who treated him, to the officials who decided to postpone the game, to the league and in-arena personnel who kept fans informed—did their jobs perfectly and kept a scare from becoming a tragedy.
A brutally honest Lindy Ruff addressed the media following Rich Peverley's mid-game cardiac event and said the first thing Peverley asked him when he came to was how much time was left in the first period. Ruff was still visibly shaken and told reporters he had no interest in coaching a game right now.
Dallas Stars forward Rich Peverley collapsed during tonight's Blue Jackets-Stars game in Dallas, leading the game to be suspended pending news of his condition.
Tyler Seguin's ice-girl-delighting hat trick against a demoralized Canucks team couldn't have been more Texas. Among the hats to fly was one big, black cowboy hat—briefly modeled by linesman Derek Amell:
[After Tyler Seguin scored the third goal of his hat trick in a 6-1 win over the Canucks, the Dallas Stars Ice Girls went bonkers. It's an example of celebration distilled to its purest form: jumping and yelling because something cool happened. Photo by LM Otero/AP. H/t to Marc.]
Tim Thomas will take his tire-pumping efforts elsewhere. He's heading to Texas, which, let's be honest, is cosmically right. His newest old teammate took it poorly:
The Dallas Stars really brought out the big names on the American Airlines Center scoreboard during tonight's game against the Toronto Maple Leafs. Both Bieber and Rob Ford made appearances, though at least one Toronto fan showed her very special love for the crack-smoking mayor.
Stars goalie Kari Lehtonen had no problems resting his feet late in a 7-3 laugher in Calgary. If by some miracle the Flames had made it closer, Jamie Benn would have just set up Tyler Seguin for another goal or two.
