Dallas Stars 2014 News and Updates
3/10/14 – The Dallas Stars swapped goalies with the Florida Panthers in the final hours of the NHL trade deadline and now, veteran goalie Tim Thomas will make his first start for the Dallas Stars after the team announced that No.1 goaltender Kari Lehtonen has a concussion (no time table). Dallas Stars tickets to see Thomas’ debut against the Columbus Blue Jackets range from $71-$307 while Friday’s game at American Airlines Center-TX vs. the Calgary Flames is a bit more expensive, averaging $80.
3/4/14 - Stars coach Lindy Ruff earned his 600th NHL win last night with a victory over the Sabres. Forward Alex Chiasson scored the game-winning power-play goal, his first in 13 games. Dallas will head to Columbus tonight to face the Blue Jackets before returning home for three straight - Vancouver (avg. $74), Minnesota (avg. $207), and Columbus (avg. $76). Saturday’s game against the Wild is the most expensive game remaining at American Airlines Center this season; Minnesota has won five straight and just added Ilya Bryzgalov to their roster.
2/25/14 - While most teams were complaining about the Olympic break messing with their momentum, the Dallas Stars welcomed the hiatus, as it allowed players to rest and recuperate from their injuries. With a healthy team and three Olympians (plus one Olympic coach) back in place, the Stars are primed to take on their 24-game second half run successfully. In the postseason push, the Stars are holding onto the final wildcard spot in the Western Conference. Two players came home with historic hardware that will be displayed during their first game back from break, against the Carolina Hurricanes this Thursday. Attend the game to see and take pictures of the gold (awarded to Jamie Benn of Canada) and bronze (awarded to Kari Lehtonen of Finland) medals from Sochi: located near Section 113 from 6:30-7:30 prior to faceoff. Dallas Stars tickets in the Lower Level Section 113 are still available for $71, while tickets up top start at $12.
2/21/14 - The Stars are brimming with talent, and it shows in the performances of their players over in Sochi: coaches Lindy Ruff (Canada) and Valeri Nichuskin (Russia) and players Kari Lehtonen (Finland), Valeri Nichuschkin (Russia), and Jamie Benn (Canada) have all made waves for their respective countries—lets hope they bring all that energy back to Texas when the NHL resumes play! Dallas is still battling with the Phoenix Coyotes for ownership of 8th and final wildcard spot, so they'll have to hit the ground running when they get back from break in less than a week. Dallas Stars tickets when they play the Carolina Hurricanes (2/27) start at an inexpensive $12.
2/4/14 – The Stars aligned Saturday when Dallas handed the NHL-leading Mighty Ducks their first shutout of the season (2-0). Goalie Dan Ellis made 26 saves against his former team, punching his 14th career shutout and helping the Stars snap a five-game road skid. Two of Dallas’ next three games will be played against Coyotes who they have yet to match up against this season. Phoenix Coyotes vs. Dallas Stars tickets will cost you an average $21 tonight in Arizona and an average $97 at American Airlines Center-TX (2/8).
1/30/14 – Leave it to the Stars to have fun with the big screen! Aside from their mocking of Justin Bieber on the video board, the roster is also keeping fans entertained, winning three of their last four at American Airlines Center-TX. The loss came against the Avs Monday night when Semyon Varlamov stopped Dallas’ scoring leader Tyler Seguin twice during a third-period power play when the score was tied. The Stars will look to rebound from their close finish tonight at home against New Jersey; Dallas Stars tickets to the game are available for just $20.
3/22/13 - It appears that rivalries (if there even are any) among professional sports teams in the same city, are even bigger in Texas. Much of Dallas was made aware that the NHL lockout was over via the Cowboys twitter account. Nobody cares that the NHL is back? I'm sure Dallas Stars fans would think otherwise. The creative response back from the Stars (@DallasStars): At least our #9 got the job done. Not many can argue with that. Retired Star, #9 Mike Modano, led the Stars to their only Stanley Cup Championship. That was the past however; now, the Dallas Stars are currently three points out of the coveted eighth spot. This season the Stars have seen the additions of Derek Roy and Jaromir Jagr; both are being leaned on to get this team back to the NHL playoffs - just as Modano had.
