COLUMBUS, Ohio -- The Stars are off to a 1-5-1 start and struggling to score goals.
Dallas ranks 30th in the NHL in goals per game at 1.86 right now and is 1-for-22 on the power play. The Stars also have allowed six power-play goals against.
That said, Dallas has played one of the toughest schedules to start the season with games against St. Louis, Boston, Calgary and Washington (twice). They also have played seven games in 12 days with travel between six of the seven games.
Stars coach Jim Montgomery decided to give the Stars the day off from a scheduled practice Tuesday, so DallasStars.com's Mike Heika talked with general manager Jim Nill about where his team is at and how to get out of this slump.
