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.

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.

by Mark Stepneski @StarsInsideEdge / Inside Edge

The Dallas Stars wrap up their four-game homestand tonight against the Boston Bruins at American Airlines Center (7 p.m. CT; FS-SW; KTCK), and it's a battle between a couple of banged-up defensive units.

Three NHL defensemen will make their NHL debuts tonight, one for the Stars and two for the Bruins.

Shore to miss one to two weeks with lower-body injury

Ritchie will be bumped to the second line for the Stars' matchup with Boston on Friday

by Mark Stepneski @StarsInsideEdge / Inside Edge

Devin Shore's injury is pretty much what the Dallas Stars expected.

The winger will miss one to two weeks with the lower-body injury he suffered in Monday's game against the Columbus Blue Jackets. Shore was injured in the first period when he went down awkwardly in the corner after getting tangled up with Columbus defenseman David Savard.

"It's somewhere between a week to two weeks, probably looking at 10 days max," said Stars coach Jim Montgomery.

Stars' power play 'discombobulated' in loss to Columbus

Dallas can't generate much on four man-advantage opportunities, falling 2-1 to the Blue Jackets

by Mark Stepneski @StarsInsideEdge / Inside Edge

The Dallas Stars' power play started the season on fire, but it's gone cold the last four weeks -- and Monday night, it proved costly. The Stars misfired on four power-play opportunities in a 2-1 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets at American Airlines Center.

"This was not the result we wanted," said Stars forward Alexander Radulov. "We weren't good on the power play, and that basically cost us points."

The Stars had three chances on the power play in the first period with a chance to take the lead in the game, but they managed just one shot on goal. Meanwhile, the Blue Jackets were able to get off three shorthanded shots on the three Dallas power plays and then cashed in on their first power play of the game to take a 1-0 lead early in the second.

The Stars had another power play late in the third with a chance to tie the game, but they were unable to get a shot on goal.

Energy shot: With Radulov back, Stars to reunite 'Big Three' on top line

Polak returns on defense, Khudobin in goal as Dallas looks for a series split with Columbus

by Mark Stepneski @StarsInsideEdge / Inside Edge

With Alexander Radulov back in the lineup for the Dallas Stars, coach Jim Montgomery will reunite the top line of Jamie Benn, Tyler Seguin, and Radulov for tonight's game against the Columbus Blue Jackets at American Airlines Center.

That top line hasn't had much opportunity to play together over the past few weeks with Radulov missing 10 of the past 11 games due to a lower-body injury. The last time Benn, Seguin, and Radulov began a game on the same line was Oct. 16 in New Jersey.

"The plan is to put the big line back together," Montgomery said. "I am sure that will energize all three of them and energize the team."

Radulov to return for Stars against Blue Jackets

The energetic forward has missed 10 of the last 11 games because of a lower-body injury

by Mark Stepneski @StarsInsideEdge / Inside Edge

The Dallas Stars held a short practice at StarCenter Frisco on Sunday morning. Not everybody was on the ice, but a couple of the guys on the team's long injury list were, and there was some positive news on that front.

Forward Alexander Radulov will return on Monday night when the Stars take on the Columbus Blue Jackets at American Airlines Center (7:30 p.m. CT; FS-SW+; KTCK) , and there is a good chance Brett Ritchie will be back as well.

The status of defenseman Roman Polak is still unclear, but the Stars believe he could be ready, too.
