DALLAS-- A week ago Friday, all was well with the Dallas Stars. The club was fresh off a come-from-behind win at Vancouver where they trailed 3-1 midway through the second period before storming back for three unanswered to leave Rogers Center with a huge 4-3 win, their second in a three-game trip through Western Canada.
Glen Gulutzan's club headed back to the Lone Star State with visions of building some momentum after that huge road win in British Columbia and with a three-game homestand, the club's longest so far this season, beginning last Sunday against Calgary, optimism was prevalent in the Stars room about their chance to make "hay at home" as Gulutzan put it before facing the Flames.
However, the Stars blew a 3-1 lead of their own against Calgary on Sunday as Bob Hartley's team showed incredible grit to light the lamp three times without nary an answer from the home club and Calgary left town with a huge two points thanks to a 4-3 win.

Give credit to mountain man Kassian for continuing to throw bombs...
DALLAS (AP) -- Jamie Benn was all over the score sheet for the Dallas Stars.
Benn had a goal, and assist and a rare fight that sparked the Stars to a 3-1 win over the San Jose Sharks on Saturday night.
Dallas even got a pair of goals from its struggling power play.
Jaromir Jagr and Michael Ryder also scored for the Stars, and Cristopher Nilstorp was outstanding in making 31 saves...
The Vancouver Canucks beat the Dallas Stars last night 4-3. The fight of the night between Zack Kassian (Canucks) and Antoine Roussel (Stars) wasn't as evenly matched though. Stars rookie Roussel didn't seem to land any punches, and had his jersey covering his face pretty much the whole time. I guess you could say the Stars were 0-2 on the night. Check out the brawl...

It appears yet another Swedish goaltender is coming overseas to the NHL. Viktor Fasth, the most notable, has done well for himself at the age of 30 being undefeated at this point of the season coming from the Swedish Elite League. Now rising into the NHL is Cristopher Nilstorp, 29, of the Dallas Stars.
