The View from Dallas


Mike Heika: Stars’ Lindy Ruff after fifth straight loss, ‘Enough of the pond hockey’

“A team that was once in the thick of the top eight in the Western Conference is now near the bottom looking up at a very tough batch of teams on top of it.”

Mike Heika: Observations: Stars need to start taking home games as seriously as the fans do

“We’ve talked about the new car smell wearing off and the new-look Stars having to stand on their own, and nowhere is that more clear than in the home record this season. Dallas is 1-1-4.”


Mark Stepneski: Stars Fall to Kings, Winless Streak Hits Five

“Turnovers were a problem again for the Stars, who committed 19 giveaways in the game. Two of them led to Los Angeles goals.”


Steve Hunt: Home Woes Continue for Skidding Stars

“Dallas has now been outscored 16-8 in the third period this season and the Stars are just 1-3-1 when tied after two periods.”


Brad Gardner: Los Angeles Kings Deal Dallas Stars Fifth Straight Loss, 3-1 at AAC

“Valeri Nichushkin returned and had a strong game until being rather unfortunately involved in those two goals against in the third.”
