News: Lehtonen was the first goalie off the ice and is set to start Friday against the Ducks, NHL.com's Mark Stepneski reports.
Impact: The Stars will play a back-to-back set Friday and Saturday, but because Lehtonen received a rest last weekend, it's not inconceivable for the goalie to take both turns. He has yet to suffer a regulation loss in his seven starts this season, but his so-so ratios (2.90 GAA, .907 save percentage) have dragged down his value a bit.
Thu. Oct 30, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Nichushkin (groin) was activated from injured reserve and sent out on a conditioning assignment at AHL Texas.
Impact: Since Nichushkin has been sidelined the past three weeks (and a total of seven games) with the groin injury, the Stars want him to appear in a few contests in the minors before allowing him to suit up for the parent club. The 19-year-old contributed 34 points in 79 games for the Stars as a rookie and will likely be earmarked for a top-line role alongside Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin once he returns from the rehab assignment.
Thu. Oct 30, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Coach Lindy Ruff said Nichushkin (groin) is close to returning from injured reserve, NHL.com's Mark Stepneski reports.
Impact: The Stars indicated a few days ago that Nichushkin wouldn't be able to return at any point this week, so while the young winger appears to progressing well, don't expect him to suit up for either of the team's back-to-back tilts with the Ducks or Wild over the weekend. However, if he rejoins full practice and short order and no longer appears hampered by the groin injury that has bothered him since training camp, Nichushkin's activation could come in advance of Tuesday's game against the Kings.
Wed. Oct 29, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Oleksiak scored his first NHL goal in Tuesday's OT loss to St. Louis, his fifth NHL game.
Impact: Oleksiak is looking like he could earn a consistent role with the team, but his ice time may prevent him from being effective for fantasy. Through five games he has a high of 14:30 and played just 11:51 in Tuesday's loss.
Wed. Oct 29, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Goligoski added an assist in 27:02 of ice time in Tuesday's loss to St. Louis.
Impact: Goligoski has points in three straight games, totaling four assists in that time. He's not raking in the shots and is sitting at a minus-2 rating on the season, but his 25:03 of ice time per game is a boon if your league scores ATOI.
Wed. Oct 29, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Benn had an assist and six shots in Tuesday's OT loss to St. Louis.
Impact: Benn now has points in seven straight games with five goals and six assists in that time. Dallas' top line might be the best in the league.
Wed. Oct 29, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Spezza had an assist in Tuesday's OT loss to the Blues, extending his point streak to six games.
Impact: Over the last six games Spezza has nine assists and two goals. As long as he's playing with Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn, that line is going to produce at an exciting clip. Hang onto Spezza if you've got him.
Wed. Oct 29, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Lehtonen allowed four goals on 27 shots in Tuesday's OT loss to St. Louis.
Impact: It was another rocky night for Lehtonen, who has been hot and cold with frustrating regularity. His save percentage on the season is .907, with a 2.90 GAA, but those marks are dragged down by two games with a save percentage of .852 or lower. He's also allowed at least two goals in every start. Dallas' defense may be a liability for him this season.
Wed. Oct 29, 2014 | RotoWire
News: McKenzie was assigned to AHL Texas on Thursday, Mark Stepneski of the Stars' official site reports.
Impact: McKenzie was called up to provide depth when Valeri Nichushkin (groin) was moved to IR. His move back to AHL doesn't appear to be related to any impending activations, as Nichushkin isn't expected to play this week. If no other move is made, it would leave the Stars with just 12 forwards on the roster.
Tue. Oct 28, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Seguin picked up a goal and an assist, went plus-1 and gathered two penalty minutes Tuesday in an overtime losss to the Blues.
Impact: That pushes his hot streak along to seven games, during which he's compiled the fairly incredible sum of seven goals and eight assists.
Tue. Oct 28, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Daley picked up an even-strength assist and a power-play goal in Tuesday's overtime loss to the Blues.
Impact: After a couple quiet games in a row, Daley got back to his offensive ways Tuesday, and now that he's off to a big start with eight points in nine contests, and as long as he continues seeing heavy minutes and power-play time, that should remain the case.
Tue. Oct 28, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Lehtonen led the Stars onto the ice for pregame warmups Tuesday and will be in the crease against the Blues, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Impact: After resting Saturday in favor of backup Anders Lindback, Lehtonen returns to the net in search of his fifth win of the season. Brian Elliott will be in the opposing goal.
Tue. Oct 28, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Lehtonen is expected to start Tuesday's game against the Blues, Mark Stepneski of the Stars' website reports.
Impact: Lehtonen left the ice first following Tuesday's morning skate, which lines him up to start Tuesday night. Lehtonen has yet to lose in regulation this season, going 4-0-2 in six starts.
Mon. Oct 27, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Gonchar (ankle) is not expected to return this week, Mark Stepneski of the team's official site reports.
Impact: Gonchar skated Monday, and is progressing in the rehab process, but won't be able to return to the lineup until next week at the earliest. The veteran blueliner is nearing the end of his career, and the team has undoubtedly made it a priority to keep him healthy.
Mon. Oct 27, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Nichushkin (groin) is not expected to return this week, Mark Stepneski of the team's official site reports.
Impact: Nichushkin's return has taken a little longer than expected, but head coach Lindy Ruff said that the winger's rehab is progressing. He did skate Monday, but won't return at any point this week, as the Stars are being careful with him.
Oct 26, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Lindback was beaten for six goals on 28 shot attempts in Saturday's 7-5 loss to the Islanders.
Impact: The Stars only turned to Lindback to give Kari Lehtonen a rest for the second game of a back-to-back, and the backup's performance Saturday showed exactly why he'll see infrequent use this season. With a career 2.79 GAA and .903 save percentage, Lindback is probably one of the weaker No. 2 goalie options in the league and is liable for these types of implosions any time he faces a quality offense.
Sat. Oct 25, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Spezza sports a five-game, 10-point scoring streak after dishing a goal and adding an assist in Saturday's loss to the Islanders. He has two goals and eight assists during the streak.
Impact: Unfortunately, he was minus-4 Saturday night, which drove down his plus/minus to minus-5 on the season. But right now, we're not too worried about the plus/minus. He's showing that at 31, his skills have not disappeared or deteriorated. And in fact, he appears rejuvenated playing in the South. Use him well.
Sat. Oct 25, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Seguin's goal and assist in Saturday's loss to the Islanders extended his current point streak to six games and 13 points, including six goals.
Impact: He will vie for the Art Ross this season. Yes, you read that right -- he's that good and Dallas seems like the perfect place for this former Bruin. We don't need to tell you what to do.
Sat. Oct 25, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Lindback led the Stars onto the ice for pregame warmups and will get the starting nod Saturday against the Islanders, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Impact: Lindback will be looking to even his record at 1-1 after he was dealt a loss in his lone prior appearance this season, an Oct. 11 defeat at the hands of the Oilers. Chad Johnson will start for the Islanders in the opposing net.
Sat. Oct 25, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Lindback is expected to backstop the Stars for Saturday's game against the Islanders, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Impact: Lindback was off the ice early during Saturday's optional skate, so it's expected that he'll spell regular starter Kari Lehtonen for the evening. An official confirmation on the Stars' starter likely won't come until pregame warmups, but it looks like both teams will go with backups, as Chad Johnson is slated to man the net for the opposition. Lindback took the loss in his only other appearance this season, giving up three goals on 32 shots in an Oct. 11 loss to the Predators.
Sat. Oct 25, 2014 | STATS
News: Benn scored in his fifth consecutive game Friday.
Impact: Benn also netted the shootout winner, downing New Jersey 3-2. The 25-year-old is following up his 34-goal season in 2013-14 with another productive campaign.
Fri. Oct 24, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Lehtonen made 25 saves on 27 shots in Friday's shootout win over the Devils.
Impact: Lehtonen has now won four of his last five games, giving up 15 goals in that span. Excluding a blowout loss to the Flyers, Lehtonen has looked dynamic in the Stars' crease, providing reliable goaltending behind a potent offense. As long as he remains healthy, Lehtonen is a quality fantasy option who will rack up the wins.
Fri. Oct 24, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Hemsky had his best game of the season Friday, recording a game-high eight shots on goal in a win over the Devils.
Impact: Hemsky was all over the ice Friday, but couldn't finish any of his chances. Hemsky only has one assist through seven games, but his performance against New Jersey is hopefully a sign of things to come. Hemsky won't put up big numbers skating on the Stars' fourth line, but given his skill set, it won't be long before the 31-year-old winger is moved up the depth chart.
Fri. Oct 24, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Eaves netted his first goal of the season, had three shots, and was credited with four hits in Friday's win over New Jersey.
Impact: Considering he is a fourth-liner seeing no power-play time, Eaves isn't relevant in shallow fantasy formats. If he remains healthy, though, the former Detroit Red Wing could net 10-15 goals, making him worth a look in the very deepest of leagues.
Fri. Oct 24, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Benn scored for the fifth straight game and had the shootout-winner in Friday's win over New Jersey.
Impact: Benn struck in the second period on a power play, taking a pass from Tyler Seguin in the slot before beating Devils' goalie Cory Schneider over the pad. Benn is on fire, tallying nine points in his last five games, to go with a plus-4 rating. With Seguin and Jason Spezza as his linemates, Benn isn't slowing down anytime soon. The 25-year-old is well on his way to another point-per-game season in Dallas. What a monster.
Fri. Oct 24, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Hemsky was practicing on the fourth line during Friday's morning skate, according to Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News.
Impact: Hemsky hasn't been the boon to the Stars offense they were hoping for. Through six games Hemsky has one assist, no goals, a minus-4 rating, and just seven shots. With shaky play and him moving down the lineup, he's looking like a risky fantasy start until he proves otherwise.
Fri. Oct 24, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Jokipakka was skating as part of the Stars' third pairing at morning skate and appears set to make his NHL debut Friday against the Devils, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Impact: Jokipakka was recalled by the Stars on Sunday, after Patrik Nemeth was ruled out for the remainder of the regular season due to a severe arm laceration. The 23-year-old from Finland, who produced 21 points in 68 games for AHL Texas last season, will likely replace Kevin Connauton in Friday's lineup.
Fri. Oct 24, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Lehtonen will get the start in net for the Stars on Friday against New Jersey, according to Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News.
Impact: Lehtonen has been hit and miss through five starts this season, and will bring his 2.92 GAA and a .913 save percentage into Friday's showdown in Newark. The Devils have been surprisingly potent on offense in the early stages of the season, so it's far from a safe bet that Lehtonen will turn in a respectable outing Friday.
Thu. Oct 23, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Goligoski (ear) returned to practice Thursday, Mark Stepneski of the Stars' website reports.
Impact: Goligoski was able to get back on the ice Thursday after taking a day off to give his lacerated ear a chance to heal. It seems likely he will be good to go for the Stars' next game Friday against the Devils.
Wed. Oct 22, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Nichushkin (groin) will not return for either of the Stars' next two contests, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Impact: Nichushkin resumed skating earlier this week, but he hasn't progressed to the point of being ready to play this weekend. Instead, he'll turn his focus toward practicing over the next couple of days, after which he could activated from IR.
Wed. Oct 22, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Gonchar (ankle) will not return to action in the Stars' next two games, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Impact: Gonchar has demonstrated progress by resuming skating Monday, but he's probably not going to be ready play until next week at the earliest. In addition to the ankle ailment that continues to keep Gonchar out, the Stars also lost Patrik Nemeth to a season-ending injury this past Saturday, weakening an already-thin Dallas blue line.
Wed. Oct 22, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Goligoski was absent from Wednesday's practice after sustaining a laceration to his ear during Tuesday's game, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Impact: Goligoski took a Kari Lehtonen skate to the ear Tuesday and is also reportedly nursing a nagging injury, either of which could keep him out of Thursday's session as well. The ear injury doesn't seem like anything that would jeopardize Goligoski's chances of playing Friday against the Devils, but the undisclosed nagging ailment could prove more problematic.
Wed. Oct 22, 2014 | STATS
News: Seguin scored his fifth goal of the season Tuesday in Dallas' 6-3 win over Vancouver.
Impact: Seguin now has five goals in six games and looks primed for another fantastic season in Dallas. He scored 37 goals last year for the Stars.
Wed. Oct 22, 2014 | STATS
News: Cole scored two goals Tuesday in Dallas' 6-3 win over Vancouver.
Impact: Cole tallied his first two-goal game since last New Year's Eve. The 13-season veteran scored 16 goals with the Stars last year.
Wed. Oct 22, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Oleksiak made his second appearance of the season Tuesday versus the Canucks, contributing four hits, one block and one shot attempt in his 13:21 of ice time.
Impact: With Patrik Nemeth ruled out for the season after requiring surgery on an arm laceration, Oleksiak is set to occupy a regular role on the Stars' third line. The big blueliner probably won't see enough ice time on even strength or the power play to produce much meaningful production for those in shallower or mid-sized formats.
Wed. Oct 22, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Benn gathered an assist in his second straight contest Tuesday versus the Canucks.
Impact: Benn probably won't register much more than 20 points this season, but he should crack triple digits in both hits and blocks while remaining locked into a top-four role on the Stars' defense. He's further made up for his lack of scoring with a plus-4 rating over the team's first six games, as well.
Wed. Oct 22, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Garbutt contributed a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Canucks.
Impact: Garbutt scored one of the Stars' five goals in the game's first 22 minutes, with the winger claiming his third assist of the season on goal No. 5. The 29-year-old has been seeing time on the Stars' second line, and while his offensive contributions aren't enormous, his above-average production in penalty minutes and hits could allow him to carve out some value in specialty leagues.
Wed. Oct 22, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Horcoff pocketed two assists in Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Canucks.
Impact: All three of Horcoff's points on the season have come over the Stars' last two games. Horcoff connected with fourth-line and second power-play unit mate Erik Cole for both goals Tuesday.
Wed. Oct 22, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Cole delivered a two-goal performance in Tuesday's win over the Canucks.
Impact: Held out of the scoring column for his first three games of the season, Cole has now found the net three times on his last four shot attempts. The two tallies gave him his first game with multiple goals since the previous New Year's Eve.
Tue. Oct 21, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Nemeth (arm) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.
Impact: The move to injured reserve was a foregone conclusion for Nemeth, after he was ruled out for the remainder of the regular season following surgery for a serious arm laceration. The Stars hope that Nemeth will be able to contribute at some point during the team's potential playoff run, but such a decision would hinge entirely on how much progress the blueliner makes in the coming months.
Tue. Oct 21, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Nichushkin (groin) has been placed on injured reserve.
Impact: Nichushkin has already been out for over a week with the lower-body ailment, so the move to IR doesn't come as much of a surprise. It's uncertain how much longer the Stars will be without his services, but the youngster was able to get in a skate Monday, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports, suggesting a return to practice may be in the offing. Fortunately for Nichushkin, none of the Stars' other wing options have made a strong case over the last few games to take over his top-line role on a permanent basis.
Tue. Oct 21, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Benn scored a goal, assisted on another, went plus-1 and collected two PIM in Tuesday's win over Vancouver.
Impact: As usual, Benn and Tyler Seguin made magic together, as Benn had the primary assist on Seguin's goal at the end of the first period and Seguin got the primary assist on Benn's goal at the start of the second. Unsurprisingly, the talented Benn is off to a big start to the year, and that should continue as long as he and Seguin are healthy.
Tue. Oct 21, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Seguin scored a goal and assisted on another in Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Canucks.
Impact: As usual, Seguin and Jamie Benn did their damage together, with each getting the primary assist on the other's goal. Seguin now has a stunning 10 points, evenly split between goals and assists, over his last four games.
Tue. Oct 21, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Lehtonen turned away 43 out of 46 pucks in Tuesday's win over the Canucks.
Impact: Sure, he gave up three goals, but this still represents an outstanding start for Lehtonen, particularly considering the amount of rubber that came his way. The Finnish netminder hasn't been able to replicate last season's dominance so far this year, but he also hasn't lost in regulation yet.
Tue. Oct 21, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Lehtonen is in the net Tuesday versus the Canucks, Sportsnet reports.
Impact: Lehtonen's recent history against the Canucks (4-0, 0.95 GAA over last five starts) would seem to bode well for his chances of rebounding from Saturday's six-goal debacle against the Flyers. Ryan Miller will oppose him in the opposite net.
Tue. Oct 21, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Gonchar (ankle) skated on his own Monday, Mark Stepneski of the Stars' website reports.
Impact: It's not exactly clear where Gonchar stands in his recovery, but it's a good sign that he was able to get back on the ice. Gonchar will likely be ready to return to game action sometime in early November.
Tue. Oct 21, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Lehtonen is expected to start Tuesday's game against the Canucks, Mark Stepneski of the Stars' official website reports.
Impact: Lehtonen will look to get back on track after giving up as many goals (six) in his last start as he did in his first three combined. He will take on a Vancouver squad that is currently tied for 10th in the league in offense, averaging 3.00 goals per game.
Mon. Oct 20, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Nemeth will miss the entire regular season due to an arm laceration, Mark Stepneski of the team's official site reports.
Impact: Nemeth suffered a scary injury Saturday when he cut his arm on an opponent's skate, and was originally expected to miss a few weeks. It turns out the injury is much more serious, and Nemeth will unfortunately see his season come to a premature end as a result.
Sun. Oct 19, 2014 | STATS
News: Nemeth will miss the remainder of the season.
Impact: Nemeth left Saturday's game in the first period because of a right arm laceration, and didn't return.
Sun. Oct 19, 2014 | STATS
News: Lehtonen stopped 31 of 37 shots Saturday.
Impact: Lehtonen was poor but so was the defensive effort for Dallas.
Sun. Oct 19, 2014 | STATS
News: Daley had two goals Saturday.
Impact: Daley has five points in five games so he is getting it done for the Stars.
Sun. Oct 19, 2014 | STATS
News: Seguin was superb Saturday.
Impact: Seguin had four assists for the Stars. He had never before had more than two in a game.
Sun. Oct 19, 2014 | STATS
News: Spezza was brilliant Saturday.
Impact: Spezza had a goal and three assists after entering with two points in his first four games.
Oct 19, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Benn tallied his third goal of the season in Saturday's overtime loss to the Flyers.
Impact: Benn has heated up with the rest of the Stars attack over the last three games, contributing three goals and three assists. It's safe to say the zero points and minus-3 rating Benn delivered in the first two games have been forgiven by his fantasy owners.
Oct 19, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Lehtonen gave up six goals on 37 shots in Saturday's overtime loss to Philadelphia. He is now 0-10-3 against the Flyers in his career.
Impact: Lehtonen, who came into Saturday with two straight wins, always seems to struggle against the Flyers. Don't read too much into it; it's just one of those things that nobody can really explain. The 30-year-old is now 2-0-2 on the season with a .906 save percentage and 2.90 GAA. He's very reliable in the Stars' crease and should bounce back in the next few games.
Oct 19, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Daley struck for a pair of power-play goals in Saturday's overtime loss to the Flyers.
Impact: Daley, who only had one power-play goal in 67 games in 2013-14, has already notched a career-high three in just five games this season. The 31-year-old is counted on to log heavy minutes in Dallas, but at his age, it's hard to see him suddenly breaking out offensively. He's off to a great start, though, with five points in five games. If Daley continues to get power-play time with the likes of Tyler Seguin, Jamie Benn and Jason Spezza, there's no reason he can't at least surpass the career-high 25 points that he's tallied thrice in his career.
Oct 19, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Spezza scored his first goal of the season and added three assists in Saturday's overtime loss to Philadelphia.
Impact: This is the Jason Spezza we thought we would see this season. After a quiet start, Spezza has come alive in a big way, recording six points in his past two games. Playing on the top power-play unit with Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn, Spezza will continue to get plenty of opportunities to put up points.
Oct 19, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Seguin handed out four assists -- two on the power play -- in Saturday's overtime loss to the Flyers.
Impact: Quite the spectacle from Seguin, who now has eight points in his last three games after going scoreless in his first two. The 22-year-old has shown great chemistry playing alongside Jamie Benn and should put up another 80-point season as the Stars' top-line center.
Sat. Oct 18, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Head coach Lindy Ruff said after Saturday's game against Philadelphia that Nemeth (arm laceration) will be out for a significant amount of time, Mark Stepneski of the Stars' official site reports.
Impact: How long exactly, we aren't sure, but it sounds as if Nemeth will miss at least a couple of weeks after having his arm inadvertently cut by an opponent's skate. Ruff said Jamie Oleksiak will likely take Nemeth's place, and the team is expected to recall a reinforcement from the AHL as well.
Sat. Oct 18, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Nemeth left Saturday's game against Philadelphia in the first period with an arm laceration and will not return, the Stars' official site reports.
Impact: Nemeth had played just 23 seconds before a scary incident in which R.J. Umberger's skate came up and cut Nemeth's right wrist. No word yet on the severity of the injury, but it is unfortunate timing for the 22-year-old who was just starting to solidify his role on the Stars' blue line.
Sat. Oct 18, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Sceviour looks like he'll be a healthy scratch Saturday against the Flyers, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Impact: Sceviour has been holding down a top-line role the last couple of games while Valeri Nichushkin (groin) remains out, but coach Lindy Ruff will look to rearrange some things Saturday. The 25-year-old could still earn his way back to the Jamie Benn-Tyler Seguin line at some point, though Patrick Eaves will get a trial there on Saturday.
Sat. Oct 18, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Cole (illness) will play Saturday against the Flyers, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Impact: Cole was absent from Friday's practice due to an illness, but he confirmed his availability for Saturday's contest by participating in morning skate. Cole was relegated to checking-line duty in the first week of the season after showing up late to a practice, but he seems to be back in the good graces of coach Lindy Ruff. He's since moved back to the second line the last couple of games, but has no points to show for it thus far.
Sat. Oct 18, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Lehtonen will make the start in goal for the Stars on Saturday against the Flyers, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Impact: Lehtonen delivered an excellent outing his last time out against a potent Pens attack, stopping 27 of 29 shots en route to his second win of the season. He'll get an easier test against the flailing Flyers, though he's struggled mightily against them in his career, posting an 0-10-2 record and 3.50 goals-against average. Staying healthy remains an annual concern for Lehtonen, but if he can approach the 65 games he appeared in last season for the Stars, he'll have a good chance at finishing as a top-10 fantasy option at his position.
Fri. Oct 17, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Cole didn't practice Friday due to an illness, Mark Stepinski of the team's official site reports.
Impact: Cole's status has come in to question with the revelation that he is dealing with an illness. Morning skate or pregame warmups should shed some more light on the situation with Cole.
Fri. Oct 17, 2014 | STATS
News: Seguin scored his fourth goal of the season Thursday in Dallas' 3-2 win over Pittsburgh.
Impact: Seguin netted the game winning goal with 2.9 seconds remaining in the third period. This is the quickest Seguin has reached four goals in a season during his five-year career.
Thu. Oct 16, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Goligoski tallied two assists in Thursday's victory over Pittsburgh.
Impact: After two awful games to start the year in which he went minus-5 with no points, Goli's bounced back with three helpers and a plus-3 in his last two games. He should be good for right around 40 points again this year on the Stars' top defensive pairing.
Thu. Oct 16, 2014 | RotoWire
News: With the Stars trailing 2-1 entering the final three minutes Thursday against the Penguins, Spezza assisted on Jamie Benn's game-tying goal and then Tyler Seguin's power-play winner with three seconds remaining.
Impact: Spezza's been off to a slow start this year, but he delivered two huge assists for his first points since the opener. He also went positive in terms of plus-minus for the first time this year. Much is expected from Spezza in his first-ever season out of Ottawa, so we'll look for the 31-year-old to keep things going.
Thu. Oct 16, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Lehtonen stopped 27 of 29 shots in Thursday's victory over the Penguins.
Impact: Lehtonen's given up exactly two goals in each of his three starts this year, and has been rewarded with a 2-0-1 record. He should remain a reliable option in the Stars' net, as he typically has been when healthy.
Thu. Oct 16, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Lehtonen led the Stars onto the ice and will be the starter in goal Thursday versus the Penguins, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Impact: Lehtonen will match up against the Penguins' Marc-Andre Fleury in search of his second win of the season.
Wed. Oct 15, 2014 | STATS
News: The Dallas Stars placed right wing Valeri Nichushkin on injured reserve because of a groin injury and recalled defenseman Jyrki Jokipakka from the Texas Stars of the American Hockey League.
Impact: Nichushkin has played in two games this season. He had 14 goals and 20 assists in 79 games last season as a rookie.
Wed. Oct 15, 2014 | STATS
News: Benn tallied a goal and three assists in Tuesday's win at Columbus, marking his third career game with at least four points.
Impact: Benn was without a point through his first two games.
