Burnside: Five takeaways from a skid-snapping Stars victory

Despite a lethargic start, Dallas never let Saturday's game get out of its grasp en route to a thrilling win

by Scott Burnside @OvertimeScottB / DallasStars.com

The Dallas Stars continued their impressive play at home Saturday, coming up with an emphatic 6-3 win over the struggling Edmonton Oilers in one of the wackiest, most entertaining games in which the Stars have participated this year.

Here are some thoughts and ruminations on an afternoon tilt that could easily have gotten away from the Stars but didn't.

Afternoon delight: Stars end slide with 6-3 statement win over Oilers

Six different players score goals in the matinee victory as the Stars snap three-game winless streak

by Mark Stepneski @StarsInsideEdge / Inside Edge

The American Airlines Center continues to be a friendly place for the Dallas Stars. Coming off a rough three-game road trip, the Stars needed some success at home, and they got it with a 6-3 win over the Edmonton Oilers.

It was a big bounce-back win for the Stars who went 0-2-1 on the trip that ended with a 6-1 loss at Tampa Bay on Thursday night.

Burnside: After disappointing stretch, Stars face pivotal times ahead

Following a winless road swing, Dallas will endure a kind of litmus test in the coming week

by Scott Burnside @OvertimeScottB / DallasStars.com

A team flirting with the abyss, or a team still very much in transition? 

Maybe for the Dallas Stars, it's an issue of having a skate on each side of this line as they approach the first quarter of what has been, for the most part, an underwhelming National Hockey League season.

Certainly coming off a miserable 0-2-1 southeast road trip that saw the team outscored 14-5 (15-5 if you count the shootout goal that Florida scored to secure the extra point in Tuesday's 4-3 win), then it's fair to view the coming week as a kind of litmus test for a team that has failed to live up to lofty preseason expectations.

About the Stars

The Stars (9-9-1) are coming off a 6-1 loss at Tampa Bay on Thursday. It was a scoreless game after one period, but the Lightning outscored the Stars 3-1 in the second period and 3-0 in the third.

"This was probably the biggest disappointment of a game so far this year," said Stars captain Jamie Benn. "They pretty much took it to us from the start of the second and took over. They kept coming at us, and we didn't help ourselves at all."

Practice Notes: Methot still not ready to return

Veteran defenseman will miss fourth straight game with lower-body injury

by Mark Stepneski @StarsInsideEdge / Inside Edge

The Stars won't get veteran defenseman Marc Methot back when they take on the Edmonton Oilers Saturday afternoon at American Airlines Center.

Methot, who has missed the last three games with a lower-body injury, took the ice for an optional practice Friday in Frisco but didn't finish it and will need more time before he is ready to return to the lineup.

"Methot couldn't go today," said Stars coach Ken Hitchcock. "He lasted 15 minutes, so he needs another couple of days."
