Dickinson working hard, having fun in first taste of playoffs

The young forward just wants to do his part in a greater team effort -- and he's done exactly that against Nashville

by Mike Heika @MikeHeika / Senior Staff Writer

Jason Dickinson lying on his back laughing might be the best image of this first-round playoff series for the Stars.

The 23-year-old forward was driving the net and was so intense that when he jumped around a Predators defenseman in Game 5, he fell to his stomach and slid at goalie Pekka Rinne. While the incident was minor and Dickinson glided past the goal line to the end boards, Nashville defenseman Mattias Ekholm had to deliver a message with several crosschecks to Dickinson, who was still down on the ice.

All Dickinson could do was giggle as he took the abuse.

With best players leading way, Stars happy to follow

Benn, Seguin and Radulov combine for seven points in Dallas' Game 5 win to show just how dangerous they can be

by Mike Heika @MikeHeika / Senior Staff Writer

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Stars have been a hard-scoring team all season, and maybe that's why there's been so much hoopla surrounding their top players.

Both Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn saw their scoring ranking fall this season -- after being among the top 10 in scoring for the previous five seasons combined -- so some wondered if that was one reason the team was just 28th overall in putting the puck in the net. Others said the gap between the top three and the rest of the team was among the worst in the league, and that was the real problem.

The Dallas Stars are one win away from moving onto the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

The top line of Jamie Benn, Tyler Seguin, and Alexander Radulov led the way as the Stars defeated Nashville, 5-3, in Game 5 at Bridgestone Arena Saturday afternoon to take a 3-2 lead in the first-round playoff series.

Game 6 is Monday in Dallas.

Radulov scored two goals, Seguin tallied one goal and one assist, and Benn recorded three assists. The Stars also received two goals from Jason Dickinson and a 30-save effort from goaltender Ben Bishop, who was announced as a Vezina Trophy finalist Saturday.

Here are five things from Saturday's game.

What they're saying: Stars talk about Game 5 win over Predators

Montgomery, Benn, Seguin and Bishop discuss the victory, which pushed Nashville to the brink of elimination

by Staff Report @DallasStars / DallasStars.com
Stars head coach Jim Montgomery

Video: Montgomery on Game 5: 'Next one is the hardest one'

On the top line's effort…

It was pretty impressive, they drove play all the time and they wanted more ice time. A couple times, Jamie (Benn) was banging his stick and looking at me. They wanted it, they felt it, and they were playing well.

 

On Jamie Benn…

I thought all four lines were doing a good job. Our first goal, (Roope) Hintz's line, what a great cycle play by Hintz and (Jason) Dickinson and (Mats) Zuccarello and the d-men involved. We did a lot of good things. I think we keep getting better and we have to keep getting better, the next one is the hardest one because it's the potential to end someone's season, so that's a challenge in front of us now.

Montgomery's plan for Stars coming together at right time

Formulated last summer, the philosophy of the first-year coach is proving helpful as postseason pressure increases

by Mike Heika @MikeHeika / Senior Staff Writer

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- When we sat down in the summer before he even coached in one practice, Stars coach Jim Montgomery laid out his philosophy, and it was indeed intriguing.

Montgomery said he wanted everyone to offer ideas -- from the assistant coaches to the players to the video staff -- but that the ultimate decision was his. He said he wanted to be surrounded by smart people, smarter than himself even, but that in the end one person had to have the final say.

"I know that if we're only relying on my ideas, we'll become predictable and we simply won't be the best team we can be," Montgomery said before the season. "I respect other people's ideas and I want to use the best ideas. I want to be the best team, and I think you need to look outside of yourself to do that."

Perfect 10: Penalty kill a boon for Stars entering Game 5

Special teams play has been key in this series, and Dallas' PK is unblemished through four games

by Mark Stepneski @StarsInsideEdge / Inside Edge

Special teams play was expected to be key in the first-round playoff series between the Dallas Stars and Nashville Predators, and it has.

It was huge in the Stars' 5-1 victory Wednesday in Game 4 that tied the series 2-2 with Dallas scoring three times on the power play in the first period.

A power-play goal also was key in the Stars' 3-2 win in Game 1. Both teams scored twice at even strength, and the Stars were 1-for-3 with the man-advantage while the Predators went 0-for-4. But the Dallas power play misfired in Games 2 and 3, failing on 10 chances as the Stars lost both games.

Stars 'a confident group' heading into Game 5 vs. Preds

Dallas is comfortable playing in Nashville, where it's had success in both the regular season and playoffs

It's off to Nashville for the Dallas Stars who will take on the Predators in a crucial Game 5 of their first-round playoff series Saturday afternoon at Bridgestone Arena (2 p.m. CT; NBC; KTCK 1310-AM, 96.7-FM).

The Stars are coming off a big 5-1 win Wednesday in Game 4 that tied the series 2-2.

"I think we are a confident group," said Stars goaltender Ben Bishop. "All series long, nothing changes. You don't want to get too high or too low. [Game 4] was a big win, but you want to hit the reset button and get ready for a tough game."
