Scary scene from the Colorado Avalanche's 3-0 win over the Dallas Stars on Friday night: Avs forward TJ Galiardi sent Mark Fistric into the boards on a check … only Fistric tumbled through the penalty box door and slammed his side into the open frame. Ouch:
Fistric was shaken and left the ice, but didn't appear to miss a shift for the Stars. Good thing for Galiardi, too, or else Fistric might have added him to the bucket list.
Meanwhile … what's going on with the Stars? Four losses in a row, and Defending Big D says the offense has gone frigid:
Not only have the Stars lost four games in a row, they haven't scored a single goal in the last two games. In fact their scoreless stretch is over 170 minutes long as they last scored midway through the first period against Detroit last Saturday.
One positive sign: Loui Eriksson got Brenden Morrow and Mike Ribeiro going against Colorado, even if the line couldn't convert for a goal. They host the San Jose Sharks on Satu...
BEST OF MAXIM
On Friday night in Colorado, the Dallas Stars figure to get center Steve Ott back from the hip pointer that has sidelined him for the last six games. But in Tuesday's 6-0 loss to Florida, Glen Gulutzan's club suffered another notable setback when grinding winger Adam Burish suffered a broken hand and will miss the next four to six weeks.
And it was just under a week ago...
Vancouver businessman Tom Gaglardi completed his purchase of the Dallas Stars on Friday.
Gaglardi's bid for the team was approved in bankruptcy court. The price tag was an estimated $265 million.
A news conference was scheduled for Monday to formally introduce Gaglardi as the team's new owner.
The Stars had reached an agreement to sell the team to Gaglardi in September...
The Stars offense has all but disappeared over their longest losing streak of the season. A meeting with the Avalanche could be the spark the club needs.
A Canadian businessman with Texas roots and lifelong love of hockey purchased the Dallas Stars. The Stars said Tom Gaglardi, president of Northland Properties Corp., will be introduced Monday at a news conference as the team's new owner. Terms were not disclosed, after the NHL board of governors unanimously approved the deal.
Hmmm, looks Semyon Varlamov is already in a bit of trouble regarding the security of his No. 1 goaltender status.
Varlamov will sit for a second consecutive game tonight, in favor of Jean-Sebastien Giguere against the Dallas Stars.
Varlamov, with a 5-8-1 record and .880 saves percentage, just hasn’t made the big saves of late. We’ll see how this develops….

The Stars find themselves in a worst case scenario decision tonight.
Colorado Avalanche coach Joe Sacco called it a bad break. Minnesota Wild counterpart Mike Yeo said luck had nothing to do with it. Either way you look at it, Devin Setoguchi scored the game's lone goal with 2:31 left and lifted the Minnesota Wild to a 1-0 victory over the Colorado Avalanche on Thursday night.
