Winger Patrick Sharp scored on the power play—the Stars’ first in 13 chances—and set up Cody Eakin’s overtime winner to tie the second-round series with the Blues at two games apiece. But more importantly than all that, the Stars are headed back to Dallas for Game 5. And Patrick’s headed back to see Sadie:
The Stars scored first, then the Blues reeled off six unanswered goals, with 12 different players recording points. It was a laugher by the time Stephen Johns boarded Alex Pietrangelo, which somehow ended up with Ryan Reaves and Curtis McKenzie (briefly) trading blows.
Despite vehement Minnesota Wild objections, replay officials declared this crazy play a good goal for Dallas, giving the Stars a 1-0 lead in the second game of their playoff series and awarding Antoine Roussel credit for scoring it.
Dallas Stars center Tyler Seguin will be out for three to four weeks after partially slicing his Achilles tendon in Thursday’s game against the Lightning. If you ever wanted to know what a sliced Achilles tendon looks like from the outside, Seguin’s got you covered. (It’s below, and it might be a little nasty.)
Here’s something fun from Thursday’s Lightning-Stars game. Dallas forward Jamie Benn worked his way through the neutral zone while sliding on his knees, stood up, and passed the puck to teammate Patrick Eaves. Eaves didn’t score, but it’s still a cool little highlight from Benn.
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.
