PLAYERS: Kari Lehtonen
TEAMS: Dallas Stars
The Dallas Stars played a solid enough road game in Phoenix last night to stay competitive against the Coyotes but a pair of defensive breakdowns proved costly in a 2-1 loss that snapped the Stars' two-game mini winning streak. Kari Lehtonen had no prayer of stopping either goal, as Phoenix build a 2-0 lead by the middle stages of the game. On the first goal, gifted Coyotes defenseman Oliver Ek...

Roussel an unsung hero for Stars thus far

In the final minute of Thursday's 5-2 win by the Dallas Stars over the defending Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles Kings at Staples Center, Antoine Roussel scored his fifth goal of the season for Dallas, flipping in an empty netter, to cap the night's scoring. But besides the fact that the French-born winger already has found the back of the net five times, which ranks him...

Brenden Morrow On The Trade Talk

At age 34, he believes he still has plenty to...

AHL, CHL report and the Week Ahead 3/11-3/17

Texas Stars Texas had another tough week as they lost both of their games last week to extend their losing streak to five games. One of those losses was in the shootout so they did manage at least one point. Jack Campbell and Cristopher Nilstorp split starts last week and both guys struggled.
