Sabres-Stars Preview

The Dallas Stars are playing well, though they know they face an uphill battle to reach the playoffs. There's little doubt they regret losing earlier this season to the league-worst Buffalo Sabres. The Stars can avenge that loss Monday night at home, where coach Lindy Ruff seeks to improve to 3-1-0 against his former club. Dallas (34-28-10) moved to 5-1-0 in its last six with Saturday...

Patience has been virtue of late for Stars' Lehtonen

FRISCO -- Ask any Dallas Stars fan for their thoughts on Kari Lehtonen's play for much of this season and you might get one of several different responses: a simple grit of the teeth, an expletive or two or a simple roll of the eyes. But over his last three starts, Lehtonen has played well, going 3-0-0 with a goals-against-average of 1.66 and a .957 save percentage. Lehtonen's last...

Stars lose Eaves, Hemsky and Seguin in costly win vs. Panthers

DALLAS -- The Dallas Stars are now winners of three straight, but Lindy Ruff and company were definitely in no mood to celebrate their 2-0 win against the Florida Panthers on Friday night at American Airlines Center.

Stars-Sabres Preview

The Dallas Stars' push for a second straight playoff berth hit a serious road block during a brief homestand in which coach Lindy Ruff pointed a finger at Kari Lehtonen.

Now he'll have to try to solve those issues without one of his top goal producers with the man advantage.
