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...
So whatâs the deal? Was the hit by Dallas Stars D Mark Fistric a clean hit or not? Do we know if Brendan Shanahan has called the Stars to discuss the hit? Has he seen the video from the various angles that are available?

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...
The Dallas Stars hockey team nothing if not gutty and resilient. For the fifth time this season -- and the 17th time overall since the start of last season -- the Stars came back to win a game that they trailed at some point in the third period. Last night, Dallas managed to pull off the feat with a lineup that is still decimated by injuries.
Last night's game against the...

Even when the Islanders built...
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...
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 General Manager Joe Nieuwendyk signed seven free agents this past summer with the stated goal of improving the organization’s depth, and after suffering a spate of injuries recently, that additional depth will be severely test...
Contributions from some unexpected sources continue to help the Dallas Stars achieve success.
Expecting that same widespread production, the Stars look for a third consecutive victory and aim to continue their recent success against the visiting New York Islanders on Saturday night.
While top-line players like Jamie Benn, Loui Eriksson, Mike Ribeiro and Michael Ryder have consistently...
The Dallas Stars target their third straight win tonight, when the New York Islanders invade American Airlines Center.
Both Jordin Tootoo and Mark Fistric will have a hearing with Shanahan for their action on Saturday.
Isles 5, Stars 4
