The Stars had only one game last week and it didn't go so well as they lost 4-1 to the Grand Rapids Griffins. It's been a tough couple of weeks for the Stars as they've lost five of their last six games (allowing at least four goals in all those losses) and the same problems keep cropping up. A listless power play (0 for 7 against the Griffins, now 3 for 38 on the year), taking too many penalties (six more times on the PK) and a surprising stuggle from the Stars' net minders.
The special teams troubles are a familiar problem to Dallas Stars fans and it seems to be a system wide issue. The power-play just doesn't work.
A couple things of note from the Griffins game were season debuts for Colton Sceviour and Scott Glennie. Sceviour returned from injury problems and scored a goal in his first game back. Glennie has been riding the pine the whole year and was pretty invisible on the ice. He looked really rusty in against the Griffins.
