Stars Goalie Kari Lehtonen Drills His Fan With Puck During Warmups

The Dallas Stars were in Vancouver last night and for some reason there seemed to be an inordinate amount of Stars’ jersey chasers hanging on the glass during warmups. And one backwards hat bro. Of course some Stars fatty was holding a sign for goalie Kari Lehtonen. One thing led to another and Kari launched a puck in the fatty’s direction. The bad part? Kari drilled the dude...

Jason Demers and other game day thoughts

This morning, Brent Burns was skating with Colin White. No one skated for long,  but that’s what I saw. Predictably, the other two pair were Boyle with Vlasic and Braun with Demers.  Forward lines pretty much the same as in the last game.  From David Pollak’s observations, don’t expect to see Douglas Murray.  Niemi starts.  I mean, I assume he will.  He left the ice first...

Kari Lehtonen involved in bizarre flying puck incident

The Stars played the Canucks in Vancouver on Friday, and during pre-game warmups a Stars’ fan suffered a stitches-worthy injury at the hands of Kari Lehtonen. Lehtonen haphazardly hit the puck towards a fan wearing a Steve Ott jersey and ended up hitting him in the nose. Lehtonen noticed, took a towel and tossed it over the boards. He also gave the man a stick for his troubles...

Stars fall out of playoff spot in loss to Sharks

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) -- Joe Pavelski scored two goals, Antti Niemi earned his sixth shutout of the season and the San Jose Sharks moved back into playoff position by beating the Dallas Stars 3-0 on Saturday night. Jason Demers also scored for the Sharks, who rebounded from back-to-back losses at Anaheim and Phoenix to close within one point of Pacific Division-leading Los Angeles...

Bill Meltzer: Star Gazing: B2B Woes Killing Stars

The Dallas Stars no longer fully control their own destiny in the Western Conference playoff race. If the club fails to make the playoffs, the single most glaring reason will be the club's horrific performances in the second half of back-to-back games. The Stars don't have any more consecutive-night games this season but the damage is already done: 1-11-2. Far too many...

Cam Gore: Sharks shut-out Stars as they move into a playoff position

Sharks shut-out Stars as they move into a playoff position The Sharks had the wheels turning on all cylinders in a 3-0 win over the Dallas Stars as they moved into the eighth and final playoff spot, by doing so they pushed the Stars into the ninth position in the conference on the outside looking in. The story tonight was a goal less than a minute in and a tired Dallas team...

Bill Meltzer: Stars Gameday: 3/30/12 @ Canucks

PREVIEW 9:00 AM CDT With five games left in the 2011-12 regular season, there is good news and bad news for the Dallas Stars (42-30-5). The good news is that the first-place team completely controls its own fate in the simultaneous battles for the Pacific Division championship (and guaranteed third seed in the Western Conference Playoffs) and, failing that, for either the seventh...

Sharks Outside Looking In

from Mark Emmons of the Mercury News, After a crushing, 2-0 loss to the Phoenix Coyotes on Thursday night dropped San Jose to ninth place in the Western Conference standings, the Sharks’ season is teetering on the brink. “We’ve got to win every game,” Joe Thornton said. “That’s how it is now. There’s four games left and we’ve got to go 4-0.” That’s because the...

Ian Esplen: Drive for 5

Follow me on Twitter for random hockey talk, question and answer sessions, and the odd witty tweet Twitter Buttons Vancouver goes looking for win number 48, as they entertain the Dallas Stars at Rogers Arena. The Stars come in with their sights set firmly on tops in the Pacific Division and will surely bring a physical, playoff style of game tonight. Vancouver looks primed...

Kari Lehtonen accidently hits Stars fan with puck, fan winds up with blood, stitches, and a stick

Last night in Vancouver, two Dallas Stars fans were watching warmups. One of the fans (a woman) was holding a sign that read 'Kari 4 Vezina.' The other fan (a man) was taking an accidental puck to... Full story at Bob's Blitz ~ http://www.bobsblitz.com

Dallas Stars vs. Canucks blog: love ’em & hate ‘em

Friday Night Full of Stars The Vancouver Canucks recent schedule has allowed them to play kingmaker in the race for the final playoff spots in the Western Conference. A run of games against Dallas, Colorado, and Los Angeles has helped the Canucks not only effectively eliminate the Avalanche from the race but also helped give the team a week long litmus test to see how they measure...

Stars-Sharks Preview
