Wax on, wax off: Many Oscar-worthy moments may lie ahead for Stars

One step at a time? Dallas showed in beating Ottawa that's how it will push itself back into the playoff picture

by Mike Heika @MikeHeika / Senior Staff Writer

DALLAS -- Jim Montgomery is stealing my bits.

The head coach of the Stars was trying to explain the struggles that John Klingberg is going through early this season and he decided to fall into movie comparisons.

He said Klingberg is too much like Roy McAvoy from the movie "Tin Cup," taking bad risks and putting himself in bad situations because of it. He said Klingberg needs to be more like David Simms, the conservative pro who laid up on all four days at the U.S. Open just so he could contend for first place.

Asked and answered: Fast start propels Stars to first home win over Sens

Pavelski and Faksa score for Dallas, which earns its second straight victory to open the homestand

by Jeff Odom @jeffodom /

DALLAS -- As the Stars prepared to kick off a four-game homestand Monday, Jim Montgomery knew just how important a quick start would be against the Senators.

Coming off the road and playing in its 11th game in 19 days with plenty of travel in between, sluggishness out of the gate from Dallas was the coach's biggest concern.

"After a long road trip, usually that first game at home, you get back and it's a little bit of a sluggish start," Montgomery said before the game. "But we can't have anymore sluggish starts. We're behind the eight-ball."

By the time puck drop rolled around, the Stars made sure that wouldn't be an issue.

Tyler Seguin: Dallas will rally with 'resilience' after tornadoes

Homes owned by the Stars center and goaltender Ben Bishop were among those damaged by Sunday's severe storms

by Mike Heika @MikeHeika / Senior Staff Writer

DALLAS -- Two Stars players saw their property damaged in Sunday's tornadoes.

Goalie Ben Bishop had some damage at his residence and did not participate in the morning skate before Monday's game against the Ottawa Senators. He is expected to serve as backup goalie for the game. Center Tyler Seguin had a house hit hard, but it was not the house he was living in. Seguin moved out of the house last November and has it up for sale.

However, he still lives near that area and said he was shocked by the amount of damage he saw.

Home sweet home? Stars hope lengthy stay gets them back in battle

Looking to climb in the standings, Dallas plays six of its next seven games at American Airlines Center

by Mike Heika @MikeHeika / Senior Staff Writer

In this corner of the internet, we love our comparisons.

If we can relate the Stars to a song or movie or historical event to help make a point, well, you've seen the results. Whether it be metaphor or simile or analogy or allegory, it gets "airtime" here. And is often the case, it doesn't matter how much it has to be shoehorned in.

So let's look at the next three weeks for the Stars as harvest time. They need to make hay, bring in the corn, roll home some pumpkins. Y'know, farm talk.

Perfect 10: Perry gives Stars hope with 'unreal' effort in needed win

Former MVP scores first goal, adds two assists in victory over Flyers to help Dallas snap five-game skid

by Mike Heika @MikeHeika / Senior Staff Writer

PHILADELPHIA -- To quote the movie "Footloose," the Stars this season have needed a hero.

They got one Saturday. OK, two (at least).

In just his third game in a Stars uniform, Corey Perry tallied a goal and added two assists to lead Dallas to a 4-1 win over the Philadelphia Flyers. Now, goalie Ben Bishop also added 38 saves and Roope Hintz had a goal and an assist, but the fact this team doubled its scoring average coming into the game and came up with big goals at the right time, that was mostly Perry.

If Stars want to end slide, they should take goalie's advice: Get angry

Following a fifth straight loss, dropping Dallas to 1-7-1, Khudobin says the team is 'not angry enough'

Stars downed by Penguins, 4-2

Hintz, Klingberg find twine in 4-2 loss on the road

Roope Hintz opened the scoring in the 2nd and John Klingberg added another to trim the deficit in the 3rd, but the Stars would fall, 4-2

  • 05:05 •

PITTSBURGH -- Anton Khudobin played with passion Friday night.

His teammates, not so much.

In the end, that resulted in a 4-2 Stars loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins that dropped Dallas to 1-7-1 to start the season.

"Not enough urgency," said Stars coach Jim Montgomery of a listless start to the third period with the score tied 1-1. "You need to come out and dictate in that time and circumstance, and Pittsburgh dictated more than we did."
