How The Decision To Postpone Blue Jackets-Stars Was Made

Rich Peverley Wanted To Get Back In Game After Regaining Consciousness

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. » 3/10/14 11:55pm 3/10/14 11:55pm

Don't Look Now, But The NHL's Best Hockey Is Out West

You could be forgiven for feeling a twinge of nostalgia for the Western Conference yesterday, after news emerged that the NHL is nearing an agreement on radical realignment. The new setup is better almost every way: less travel, more geographic rivalries, the chance for every team to host every other team. But for… » 2/26/13 9:10am 2/26/13 9:10am

These Fans At The Saddledome Last Night Are True Jagr Meisters

The world's favorite mulleted hockey enfant terrible isn't so much an enfant these days as elderly, but that doesn't stop fans of Stars winger Jaromir Jagr from showing up in arenas across the NHL to show their appreciation for one of the sport's greats. Several such fans showed up in Calgary last night, with a… » 2/14/13 9:00am 2/14/13 9:00am

Kari Lehtonen Made The Best Save Of This Young NHL Season

It shouldn't have come to this. Dallas's Kari Lehtonen should never have had to make this spinning, behind-the-back swipe that kept the Stars-Blue Jackets game scoreless. Even screened by Nick Foligno, Lehtonen will probably be the first to tell you he should have gloved the puck, or knocked it down, instead of… » 1/29/13 10:35am 1/29/13 10:35am

The Dallas Stars Showed An Empty Chair On The Jumbotron, Identified It…

Like SNL, half of minor league baseball, and Mets GM Sandy Alderson, the Dallas Stars had some fun with the Manti Te'o story yesterday. During their home-opener (a 4-3 win over the Phoenix Coyotes) the stadium's jumbotron operators spotted an empty seat and, in a mash-up of old Clint Eastwood empty-chair jokes and new… » 1/20/13 12:05pm 1/20/13 12:05pm

The Stars Hired Their Own Beat Reporter. Will The NHL Be Able To Keep…

The Dallas Stars announced earlier this week that they're hiring Mark Stepneski to cover the team. He'll run a blog, StarsInsideEdge.com, and his work will appear on the club's official site. He's been writing about the Stars since 1996 on his personal blog, and covering them for ESPN Dallas for two years. It's just… » 1/16/13 1:10pm 1/16/13 1:10pm

The Cowboys Took A Swipe At The NHL On Twitter, But The Dallas Stars…

Hockey's back! (We think.) And no one in Dallas gives a shit! (Which actually might be true.) Ah, but when you've won just one playoff game in 16 years—and counting!—it's probably not a good idea to throw shade at one of your neighbors the way the Dallas Cowboys did on Twitter yesterday morning: » 1/08/13 11:50am 1/08/13 11:50am
