What it takes to adjust to a new league and an 82-game season

Lundkvist plays best game yet, acknowledges healthy scratches can be part of the process to developing consistency

by Mike Heika @MikeHeika / Senior Staff Writer

The Stars coaching staff have worked very hard on the development of Nils Lundkvist this season.

The 22-year-old defenseman was acquired just before training camp from the New York Rangers and has slotted in as a lineup regular. He played just 25 games with New York last season, and 34 more in the AHL, so the transition has been a little challenging. Lundkvist played in the Sweden Hockey League for four seasons, so he still is adapting to North American game. Plus, he's never played in an 82-game season, so that's an adjustment as well.

Heika's Take: Positive realism and the honest truth

Dallas is 28-13-9 and in first place in the Western Conference, yet 3-9 in 12 overtime games

by Mike Heika @MikeHeika / Senior Staff Writer

The Stars are battling tooth and nail with some of the Eastern Conference's best teams this week, but they're coming up short in overtime.

For the second consecutive game, Dallas lost a 3-2 contest in the extra period, this time falling to the Carolina Hurricanes at American Airlines Center on Wednesday.

Dallas to face the speed and pressure of two top ranked Eastern teams

The second ranked Stars in home scoring face off against two of the best road teams in the Hurricanes and the Devils

by Mike Heika @MikeHeika / Senior Staff Writer

The Stars are going through a challenging stretch before they head off to their bye week, playing three Eastern Conference teams with speed and skill in the span of a week.

Dallas lost a 3-2 overtime game to Buffalo on Monday, and the Sabres are tied for the scoring lead in the NHL. They get Carolina on Wednesday, and the Hurricanes are the best puck possession team in the league. Then they finish off with New Jersey on Friday and the Devils have the best road record.

It's an interesting mix of teams the Stars don't see too often.
