Oh Pacific Division, how I've missed thee (not really). It's been awhile since the last division game for the Stars (a home game on Dec. 19 against the Ducks was the last one) so Stars fans have been blessed with not having to deal with the late starts for month. Sleep schedules get messed with tonight as the Stars head to Anaheim for a start of a short two game West Coast road-trip.
While Dallas has been playing good hockey recently, they've also have been riding the injury merry-go-round. When Kari Lehtonen made his return, Sheldon Souray and Stephane Robidas got injured. Robidas made his return in the Stars last game and Souray should be back in the lineup tonight. While those two are back, Mike Ribeiro finds himself on the shelf with a knee injury.
Ribeiro had a knee-on-knee collision in the second period of the game against the Oilers...
BEST OF MAXIM
Dallas Stars 2 - Anaheim Ducks 5
Sometimes, it just seems that everything just doesn't go your way. From the outset of this game, it was clear that this just wasn't the Stars night. They were unlucky in the first period, bad in the second and a tease in the third.
In all honesty, Dallas could've been leading this game 4-1 after the first ten minutes but the puck...

from Eric Stephens of Ducks Blog, Ducks winger Jean-Francois Jacques could face a hearing with Shanahan after a questionable hit on Columbus forward R.J. Umberger in the third period of a 7-4 victory over the Blue Jackets on Sunday night.
Jacques appeared to go high with an elbow that drew a five-minute major penalty. Umberger called the hit “very dirty” and said “he’ll...
Dallas Stars center Mike Ribeiro had an MRI on his injured right knee Monday and will miss at least one game.
Dallas Stars left wing Jamie Benn, Toronto Maple Leafs forward Joffrey Lupul and Ottawa Senators goaltender Craig Anderson were named the NHL's Three Stars for the past week on Monday.
Benn collected three multiple-point efforts in a five-day span, capped by a pair of goals - including the game-winner - against the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday.
Lupul recorded two goals and five...
Kubalik received 2 for boarding.
As I mentioned a few days ago, we are seeing more and more of these types of hits and for the life of me, I can’t understand why the player makes that push?
Frisco, Tex. – The Dallas Stars announced today that the club has activated Sheldon Souray from injured reserve. The club also placed defenseman Phil...

Anaheim Ducks forward Jean-Francois Jacques has been suspended for three games by the NHL after he illegally checked an opponent in the head during a game Sunday.
Alex Goligoski scores one of Stars' two goals in loss to Anaheim.
Fans and players squawk at the penalty box. It's a fact of hockey life. Sometimes the language crosses whatever line either party seeks to establish in the moment. Sometimes a player will give a little water bottle dousing to a taunting spectator.
So with that established, we're really not trying to make a federal case out of the incident between a few Anaheim Ducks fans...
The Ducks also sent him th Syracuse on Monday.
The Dallas Stars' defense carried the club to its best start in five seasons. After a rough patch, the Stars' defensive unit appears to be clicking once more.
The lowly Anaheim Ducks, meanwhile, hope their season is turning around following a rare set of back-to-back wins.
Dallas looks to extend its point streak to seven games over Anaheim in this Pacific Division matchup...
Saku Koivu scored two of his three goals on slick setups by Teemu Selanne in the third period, and the Anaheim Ducks beat the Dallas Stars 5-2 Tuesday night for their first three-game winning streak in nearly three months.
