A morning scan of the ever-changing Western Conference in the NHL shows that once again those pesky Dallas Stars sit near the top of the conference and at least for the moment, the very top of the Pacific Division.
The margin is certainly noteworthy for those who predicted a 15th place finish in the Western Conference (Hello, Sports Illustrated), but it is also the morning of December...
New York Islanders right wing Nino Niederreiter has been diagnosed with a concussion following a brutal hit from Dallas Stars defenseman Mark Fistric in Saturday's game.
The fifth overall pick of the 2010 draft, Niederreiter exited the contest after his first shift. The 19-year-old did not return.
Niederreiter has collected one goal and two penalty minutes in six games this season.
Dallas Stars 3 - Ottawa Senators 2
Maybe this injury situation isn't as bad as everyone previously thought. Playing without five key players for the second straight game, the Stars made a fantastic comeback in the third period to beat the Ottawa Senators 3-2. The Stars stuck true to the nickname that they have given themselves lately, the PeskyStars, by just hanging around...

Even when the Islanders built...
The Hawks beat the Islanders in a shootout on Friday night, 5-4. Yes, the 2 points are welcome and needed. However, ROW (regulation, overtime wins) took another hit. The game itself skated a fine line between exciting and frustrating. New York, with the WORST goals for average in the game at 1.95 scored twice in the first period. Again, it was not all Crawford’s fault. Cro did...
Jonathan Toews netted the only goal in the shootout, after posting a short-handed goal and assist in regulation, and the Chicago Blackhawks outlasted the New York Islanders 5-4 on Friday night.

Andrew Brunette, rookie...

What do the 2011-12 NHL season and The Essential Billy Joel have in common? Both are full of questionable hits. Yeah. Billy Joel sucks. Deal with it.
Anyway, here's another one of those questionable hits. Midway through the first period of Saturday's tilt between the New York Islanders and the Dallas Stars, Nino Neiderreiter was cutting through the neutral zone when Mark...
