Montgomery, Stars 'excited' for first road test at Senators

Dallas will go with the forward lines that helped jump start Saturday's second-period offensive outburst

by Mark Stepneski @StarsInsideEdge / Inside Edge

After opening the season with four straight games at home, the Dallas Stars play their first road game of the season tonight when they take on the Ottawa Senators at Canadian Tire Centre. It will be the first of a two-game road trip for the Stars, who play at New Jersey on Tuesday night.

"I'm excited. I like coaching on the road because you can dictate a lot of the matchups and you can get your players out there," said Stars coach Jim Montgomery. "I am looking forward to putting out my lines and initiating. I like to coach on my toes, and I like the team to play on their toes.

"If we can initiate with who we want out on the ice, it's more like see if you can stop us. I like that kind of attitude."

Heika: So you want to be a professional hockey player?

Through the highs and lows, life in the league is more of a high-wire act than a cakewalk

by Mike Heika @MikeHeika / Senior Staff Writer

Being a hockey player is a great job.

But it's also a tough job.

And, mostly, it is a job.

As much as you get a lot of money to play a game, you are an employee of not only a big company, but also part of a franchise of an even bigger company. Therefore, you have to comply with the expectations of your team, but also the rules of your league. You are part of a locker room that many want to call a family, but you are also part of a union that many want to call a brotherhood.

'Looking forward to better days,' Johns opens up about injury situation

The Stars defenseman has yet to play this season while battling post-traumatic headaches

by Mark Stepneski @StarsInsideEdge / Inside Edge

Stars defenseman Stephen Johns was on the ice Sunday morning in Frisco as the team held an optional practice before flying off to Ottawa to open a two-game road trip.

It was the second straight day on the ice with the team for Johns, who has yet to play this season due to post-traumatic headaches.

"It's just nice to be around the guys again," Johns said. "I've skated with a few of the guys a couple of times. I think that's been the hardest part of this whole process is being away from the team and the guys."

Heika: What if Stars really can be as good as they sometimes are?

If Dallas can turn Saturday's second period into a complete-game effort, it might just be the league's best team

by Mike Heika @MikeHeika / Senior Staff Writer

There are times when the Stars can look like the best team in the NHL.

And there are times … well … pretty much not.

The interesting thing about this bunch in Victory Green is they find ways to do it on the same night.

Stars use second-period onslaught to rally past Ducks, 5-3

Dallas records 30 shots in the middle frame, scoring four goals in a 6:32 span to erase a 3-0 deficit

by Mark Stepneski @StarsInsideEdge / Inside Edge

The Dallas Stars made it three wins in four games on their season-opening homestand, using a dominant second-period performance to overcome a 3-0 deficit and defeat the Anaheim Ducks, 5-3, on Saturday night at American Airlines Center.

The Stars scored four times in a 6:32 span of the second to turn that three-goal hole into a 4-3 lead, outshooting the Ducks 30-4 over the entire period.

"It was a character win," said Stars coach Jim Montgomery. "It shows they are playing hard for each other. I just loved how hard they came back. That building was rocking in the second."

Change of pace: Stars, NHL present new challenges for Jim Montgomery

The Dallas head coach is adjusting to a league where games come fast and furious

by Mike Heika @MikeHeika / Senior Staff Writer

As new Stars coach Jim Montgomery works his way through his first NHL season, there will be challenges.

In college hockey, he often was able to see an opponent in back-to-back games and practice all week in preparation. In the NHL, you get three opponents in four nights who play three distinctly different styles, as Dallas will get this week with Anaheim at home tonight at American Airlines Center followed by trips to Ottawa and New Jersey.

So how does he adapt? Well, like an NHL coach.

Khudobin to make debut for Stars against Ducks

The veteran netminder will get the start tonight as Dallas wraps up its season-opening homestand

by Mark Stepneski @StarsInsideEdge / Inside Edge

Goaltender Anton Khudobin will make his first start as a Dallas Star in tonight's game against the Anaheim Ducks at American Airlines Center.

The 32-year-old Khudobin, who was signed as a free agent this offseason, was the first goaltender off the ice at this morning's skate at the AAC and said he was ready to make his Dallas debut.

"Feel good. It was a normal pregame skate, get some shots going and get ready for tonight," Khudobin said. "Probably will be a little bit nervous I would say with first start and stuff like that. I have had this before, so I've just got to follow my routine."

Montgomery tinkers with Stars' lines, keeps 'Big Three' intact at top

Dickinson and Honka are expected to be in Dallas' lineup for Saturday's game against the Ducks

by Mark Stepneski @StarsInsideEdge / Inside Edge

The Dallas Stars were back on the ice for practice Friday morning in Frisco, and coach Jim Montgomery rolled some new forward lines as the team prepared to take on the Anaheim Ducks on Saturday night at American Airlines Center.

"We're looking to see people skate more and people play more aggressively," Montgomery said. "Have calculated risks to your game and you'll get rewarded."

Montgomery kept the top line of Jamie Benn, Tyler Seguin, and Alexander Radulov together, but he tinkered with the other three trios.
