Early hole deepens for Stars as offense comes up empty against Sabres

Dallas can't capitalize on scoring chances in shutout loss, falling to 1-5-1 for the first time since 1990-91

by Mike Heika @MikeHeika / Senior Staff Writer

BUFFALO, N.Y. -- The Stars have cited poor game management as a significant cause in their 1-5-1 start and received another great example Monday in the form of a 4-0 loss to the Buffalo Sabres.

Trying to defend against a Buffalo cycle, Dallas was trapped in its own end for more than two minutes. Then, when the Stars finally secured possession of the puck, Alexander Radulov skated out into the neutral zone. He didn't get to the red line and he chipped the puck too hard. That caused an icing and meant the Stars' tired players had to remain on the ice.

'We need to step up': Stars hit road with several areas in need of repair

From poor starts to slumping power play, Dallas enters critical trip with more questions than answers

by Mike Heika @MikeHeika / Senior Staff Writer

BUFFALO, N.Y. -- On the good side, there are plenty of things the Stars can do to fix their team after a 1-4-1 start.

On the bad side, there are a lot of things they need to repair.

Dallas has gone 1-for-20 on the power play, is struggling to start games with passion, and ranks 28th in goals per game at 2.17. They have had their moments of strong play, but they're terribly inconsistent and haven't really done the things they have set out to do in the game plan.

That's a frustrating feeling.

DALLAS -- There's a great scene in the Progressive Insurance commercial where Flo's sister is on a blind date and the man asks her, "So what do you do for fun?"

As she's looking at her phone, Flo's phlegmatic sibling mutters, "Not this."

Yeah, Stars fans know the feeling.

by Jeff Odom @jeffodom / DallasStars.com

DALLAS -- The Stars' power play seems to be missing one of its most important ingredients these days:

Power.

Radek Faksa scored his first goal of the season Saturday, but Dallas continued its season-long slumber on the man-advantage against the Capitals, failing to convert on six opportunities en route to a 4-1 loss at American Airlines Center.

'It's a process': Tough lessons all part of Stars' learning curve

For some, the pathway toward becoming a good player in the NHL can be long -- and confusing

by Mike Heika @MikeHeika / Senior Staff Writer

FRISCO -- "The process" of becoming a good hockey player can be a long and confusing road.

For instance, dealing with a mistake in a game can actually get easier as you get older, and that seems to be counter-intuitive to the teaching side of the game. It would seem like mistakes from younger players would be accepted more readily than mistakes by older players, but coaches tend to cut more slack to guys they believe understand how to fix the mistakes quickly.

It's a philosophy that's pretty much shared by every coaching staff.
