Power Rankings
The Stars keep pushing and are four points out of a playoff spot. The way they started their season, that looked impossible for them. Their next few weeks will be big in trying to keep pace in a tight wild card race.
As has been the case a lot this season, the Stars have followed up a strong run with a woeful losing streak. Dallas is on a four-game skid after winning eight of their previous nine. That doesn't help a playoff push.
Heeeeeeere come the Stars. Dallas is now five points back of the last wild card spot in the West. It will still take a monumental effort to make up that ground, but the Stars are on their way with nine wins in their last 12 games.
The Stars remain on a nice run, winning seven of their past 10 and are six points behind the last wild card spot in the West. It's a big hill to climb yet.
The Stars have won five of their last six and Tyler Seguin has continued his dominant scoring run. The talented center is on pace for 64 goals this year.
The Stars are giving up a lot of games this year, that is true. Not as many as Edmonton, but close. Still, they're in the top half of the league in goals scored. An offensively threatening team like this one still has the potential to get hot.
There's no question the Stars' pourous defense needs to be addressed, but they haven't been scoring either. A brilliant Tyler Seguin season looks like it may go to waste.
Only one team has allowed more goals than the Stars this year: the Edmonton Oilers. Dallas' extremely exciting offense is going to waste this year.
Is the worst over? The Stars have two straight wins and have a deep hole to dig themselves out of. Fresh-faced defenseman John Klingberg has been a welcome addition.
You never quite know what you're going to get with the Stars this season. Part of that is due to personnel and their inexperienced defense just got younger after the team traded away Sergei Gonchar.
Preseason Power Rankings
The Stars dominated Chicago for stretches of their home opener, showing a glimpse of why they appear to be a playoff team. Then they laid an egg against the Predators. The potential is evident, though.
