Dallas 4 - Columbus 2
Nothing like a game against the worst team in the league to give a small boost to the confidence. The Stars got off to a quick start last night, getting goals from Jamie Benn and Alex Goligoski in the first five minutes, to help boost them to a win over the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Don't judge this book by its cover. The Dallas Stars play an exceptionally disciplined neutral zone system. It frustrated the Sabres for the first forty minutes of play on Friday night. The Sabres were routinely denied rush opportunities and were turned away at the Dallas blue line. Thats how they roll. They play chess with their opponents.
Rather than panic, Vanek and his...
