Late in third period of the Dallas Stars-Winnipeg Jets tilt on Wednesday night at the MTS Centre in Winnipeg, mayhem reigned after Stars pest Adam Burish tossed a Jets player’s glove (believed to be Winnipeg forward Tanner Glass) into the stands.

Stars' four-game homestand looming large

DALLAS -- Just two days removed from seeing their 11-game point streak end in dramatic fashion with a 5-2 loss at Winnipeg on Wednesday, the Dallas Stars return to the ice on Friday night against Chicago, the first of a four-game homestand that will also see them host Phoenix, Vancouver and Calgary. "You can't look too far ahead right now. It's a playoff mentality...

Stars' run rests on pads of goaltenders

It was almost a month ago when the season seemed dead and gone. I will be the first to admit that I did not think the Dallas Stars had much chance of reviving their 2011-12 and figuring out a way to challenge hard for the playoffs for the first time in four years. You'll have to forgive my pessimism, but at the time, two straight wins was a rarity and three straight? Nearly impossible...

Big heat in Big D. Are the Stars true contenders?

It may come as a bit of a surprise to learn that the Dallas Stars are arguably the hottest team in the NHL right now. Playing their best hockey of the season, Dallas has been on a roll, dismantling nearly every team they have faced recently all the while eluding most media coverage. If you haven't been paying attention to Dallas the past few weeks, here's a quick refresher...

Stars ride Lehtonen to a six game winning streak

Final Dallas 1 - Minnesota 0 It certainly wasn't very pretty, but the Dallas Stars have now won a season high six straight games. The difference in this game once again was the stellar performance of Kari Lehtonen, who stopped 25 of 25 shots en route to his second straight shutout and fourth of the season, tying a career high. The game last night got off to a frustratingly...

GARTH: Jets Up The Ante

The Sabres enter their game in Sunrise on Saturday night in tenth place in the Eastern Conference. Dustin Byfuglien's goal midway through the third period gave the Jets an impressive 3-2 regulation with against the Washington Capital on Friday night. The bad news is that the Sabres drop from ninth place to tenth place. The good news is the Jets won in regulation, hence, there is...

Jets 3, Capitals 2

Dustin Byfuglien crashed the net and scored the go-ahead goal in the third period as the Winnipeg Jets defeated the Washington Capitals 3-2 on Friday night. As Byfuglien skated in front of Capitals goalie Tomas Vokoun, Evander Kane sent the puck into the crease and the big defenseman tipped it in at 9:21 of the third. Washington went on the power play during the final 2:22 of the...

VIDEO: Winnipeg Jet's fans mock Ovechkin with "Crosby's better chants."

A flood of people tweeted us about this. Credit goes to @whistler for the vid: The chants become louder as the vid goes on The announcers also acknowledge it. Really bizarre stuff. This might be the first documented case of a crowd outside of Pittsburgh chanting a pro Crosby thing.

Bill Meltzer: Star Gazing: 3/15/12

Last night's game was a tailor-made loss the Dallas Stars. They were playing the second half of back-to-back games (a chronic trouble spot this season), going up against a more rested opponent, traveling to a tough road building, and facing a Winnipeg Jets team that faced a must-win game while the Stars themselves had a slight cushion in their own playoff race. Everything...
