Overall, January was a pretty down month for the Stars. As a result of injuries and inconsistent play, they ended up going 4-6-1 this month and now find themselves sitting in the 10th spot in the Western Conference, 3 points out of the playoffs.
Dallas had a stretch of games in which they were without both of their top centers, Mike Ribeiro and Jamie Benn, and it really showed in how the team played. Offense struggled mightily and the team just couldn't find any kind of consistency in their play.
The way Dallas played was eerily similar to what happened to the team last season around this time (massive injuries and dropping in the standings) so hopefully Dallas can get back on track after the All-Star break.
Dallas played in 11 games in January. Two of these games went into overtime. Kari Lehtonen started nine of games while Richard Bachman started the other two. For the month of January, the team's PP went 2 of 29 (7%) while the PK went 29 of 34 (85%).
