Stars of Big D:
St. Louis Blues
Detroit Red Wings
St. Louis Blues (3-1-0, 6 pts) @ Dallas Stars (2-1-1, 5 pts)
7:00 PM CT
American Airlines Center, Dallas, Texas
The Stars get another tough Central Division test tonight as the Blues come into town. St. Louis is one of the most well-rounded teams in the league and an infusion of youth has given their offense an extra kick so far this season.
There are a lot of solid players on this team but the guy to watch is easily young phenom Vladimir Tarasenko. The young Russian is among the league leaders with six points (which leads the team) and is also the team leader with four goals.
He’s shown incredible skill on the ice and is the most explosive player on the Blues. The early favorite for rookie of the year will give the Stars defense a lot of trouble.
The offense for the Blues is really good but the defense has been even better under Hitchcock. Jaroslav Halak started two games this season and posted two shut-outs (against the Red Wings and Predators...

Final - Overtime
Dallas Stars 2 – Chicago Blackhawks 3
Dallas was both unlucky and very fortunate to get at least a point in this game. Chicago dominated possession of the puck and put enormous pressure on Kari Lehtonen the entire game. The Stars couldn’t stay out of the penalty box and that, in the end, was the difference in the game as the Hawks scored three power play...
The Dallas Stars did some things well last night but were unable to slam the door on the undefeated Chicago Blackhawks after building an early 2-0 lead. As a result of some missed scoring chances when there was a chance to put the game away, followed by late penalty trouble and inability to kill the penalties, the Stars skated off with a 3-2 overtime loss and settled for one point...
The Dallas Stars have re-signed Jamie Benn to a five-year, $26.25-million contract. According to the Dallas Morning News, the Stars hope to have the young center back in the lineup for Monday's contest with the Columbus Blue Jackets. "It’s really big," said Stars GM Joe Nieuwendyk. "We know how important he is to our hockey club. It's good for our hockey...
Paragraph summary of the game.
Only two good things can be said about the tonights's Nashville Predators performance. The first is that Trotz won't need to be creative in upcoming practices; there is a near endless list of areas for improvement in the early season for this team. The team struggles to break out cleanly, to set up in the opponents zone, to get clean...
Now that the Dallas Stars finally have reached a contract agreement with their star player, they can devote their full attention to what's happening on the ice.
Jamie Benn likely won't be around, though, to try and help contain Blues rookie sensation Vladimir Tarasenko.

The St. Louis Blues have proven to be a force out of the gate.
While the Minnesota Wild also started strong, they've since taken a couple of steps back.
The Blues look to keep rolling Sunday night as they host a Wild team hoping to avoid a third consecutive defeat.

Last night, the Blackhawks pulled out a come from behind, 3-2 victory in OT, on the road against the Dallas Stars.
For the fourth time in four games this season, the Hawks had their opponent on their heels all nightâusing their speed advantage to draw multiple penalties and getting behind defenders for quality scoring chances from horn to horn.
Wade Redden last scored in the NHL on March 10, 2010, that is of course until last night.
Darren Pang described the goal as a "kind of a double-I formation."
The Dallas Stars have recalled goaltender Richard Bachman and sent goalie prospect Jack Campbell back to their AHL affiliate.
Bachman will return to his role as the backup for Kari Lehtonen after appearing in two games and winning both for the Texas Stars. Bachman is 1-3 in four starts for Dallas this season, and he got another win when he replaced an injured Lehtonen in the first...
