Why do the Stars struggle so much on the road?

On the heels of a 4-1 loss at Toronto on Monday night, the Stars head just across Ontario to face Ottawa tonight looking to salvage the final game of a road trip before heading home for Thanksgiving.

Overall in 2010, the Stars are 3-5-0 on the road but that mark is a bit deceiving. Dallas started the year 2-0-0 away from home but has just a 4-1 win at Florida on Oct. 21 since then and is just 1-5-0 since then away from the American Airlines Center.
