'They'll always remember you': Why Spezza relishes history-making moments

The Stars center and self-described 'hockey nerd' keeps finding ways to help young players score their first goals

by Mike Heika @MikeHeika / Senior Staff Writer

NEW YORK -- The answer is Daniel Alfredsson and Wade Redden.

The question is who assisted on Jason Spezza's first NHL goal?

That's important this season, because Spezza keeps finding ways to help Dallas Stars players score their first goals. He did it again Sunday, feeding Roope Hintz for a shot from the slot at 4:40 of the second period in a 6-2 win over the New Islanders.

"I love being a part of guys' first goals, they'll always remember you," Spezza said with his trademark laugh. "Everybody remembers their first goal. Firsts are fun."

Secret no more: Lindell's breakout game puts blueliner in spotlight

With two goals in the Stars' win, the 24-year-old shows his blossoming potential as one of the league's best

by Mike Heika @MikeHeika / Senior Staff Writer

NEW YORK -- Jim Montgomery offered up some strong praise for defenseman Esa Lindell on Friday.

"He's just a really good hockey player for us," Montgomery said, "and probably the most underrated defenseman in the league that I've seen so far that no one knows about."

That might be changing soon for the 24-year-old Finn.

Lindell potted two goals Sunday in a 6-2 win over the Islanders and continues to shine in the absence of John Klingberg. With Klingberg out five weeks nursing a broken hand, Lindell has seen his minutes increase significantly -- and also has seen his role on the team magnified greatly.

Four-goal second period pushes Stars past Islanders

Lindell and Radulov score two goals, top line has a big afternoon in Dallas' 6-2 rout

by Mark Stepneski @StarsInsideEdge / Inside Edge

The Dallas Stars opened a three-game road trip and a tough stretch of their schedule in impressive fashion Sunday afternoon, blowing by the New York Islanders, 6-2, at Barclays Center.

"It's a great start for us," said Stars center Jason Spezza.

The Stars, who used a four-goal second period to erase a 1-0 deficit and blow the game open, were fueled by two goals from defenseman Esa Lindell and a big game from their top line of Alexander Radulov (two goals, one assist), Tyler Seguin (one goal, two assists), and Jamie Benn (three assists).

Stars seek positive results during 'important stretch'

Dallas plays seven of its next eight games on the road beginning Sunday afternoon at the Islanders

by Mark Stepneski @StarsInsideEdge / Inside Edge

After a four-game homestand in which they picked up five of a possible eight points (2-1-1), it is back on the road for the Dallas Stars.

The Stars have a three-game road trip starting Sunday that kicks off a stretch that will see them play seven of their next eight on the road. And it begins with some tough scheduling.

Sunday's game against the New York Islanders (Noon CT; FS-SW; KTCK) kicks off a stretch of five games in seven days. Three games in four days on the road (at the Islanders, Rangers, and Penguins), Thanksgiving off, at home Friday vs. Ottawa, and then back on the road at Colorado on Saturday. Then there are a couple of days off before back-to-back games against Edmonton and Calgary.

They close out the stretch in Vancouver.

No Picasso? No problem as Stars learn how to win close games

Dallas is working to manage the intricacies and brushstrokes of what it takes to finish during crunch time

by Mike Heika @MikeHeika / Senior Staff Writer

Winning is an art.

An excruciating, inexorable, enigmatic art.

An art that can be exquisite -- when you finally understand it.

Right now, the Stars are somewhere between finger paintings and Francisco Goya, and the hope is they understand the difference.

"They're not all Picassos," said goalie Ben Bishop, who brushed his way to a shutout with 23 saves in a 1-0 victory over Boston on Friday. "But it's a character win, and we'll take it."

Dickinson's winner lifts Stars past Bruins in OT

Bishop pitches a 23-save shutout as Dallas finishes its homestand with a 1-0 victory

by Mark Stepneski @StarsInsideEdge / Inside Edge

It was no work of art Friday night, but the result looked pretty good for the Dallas Stars. Ben Bishop stopped 23 shots and Jason Dickinson scored 1:34 into overtime as the Stars defeated the Boston Bruins, 1-0, at American Airlines Center. 

"I think it was a big win. Sometimes it takes a little bit of extra time, but I thought we did a good job," said Bishop. "Obviously wanted to take care of home ice before we go on the road here, so it's a big win. Sometimes they're not all Picassos; they're always a little bit different."

Bishop made a huge save in the final minute of regulation to get the game to overtime, where Dickinson scored off the rebound of a Mattias Janmark shot on a 2-on-1 rush.
