Stars of Big D:
This week was the least successful week the Texas Stars have had in the last month. They went 1-1-1 (still respectable) to get three out of a possible six points.
Cristopher Nilstorp and Jack Campbell split starts during the week. Nilstorp’s starts went a bit rougher than Campbell’s as he allowed six goals on 48 shots while Campbell allowed only one goal on 30 shots. Nilstorp won the only game for Texas last week though.
The standout skater for the team last week was Alex Chiasson. Chiasson had a goal and three assists to lead the team in points for the week. Jordie Benn returned to the team last week after an extended stay with the Dallas Stars and had two assists to go along with 10 shots on goal. Benn will spend the rest of his time down in Austin unless the injury bug hits the Dallas defense.
Despite the average week, the Texas Stars still lead the conference and have the most points in the AHL. They return home this week for a three game homestand ag...

Seriously, there is no denying how much better the Stars look to the naked eye since they have had Derek Roy and Jamie Benn both present in their lineups on the same night. Now, that has only been 3 games...

A one sided rivalry, isn’t really a rivalry at all. No, we call this a situation of nemeses, at least in the case of the Edmonton Oilers and the Dallas Stars. For the Stars, it’s just a guaranteed two points. Continue reading "Oilers Still Reaching for the Stars"
