Stars' Ben Bishop: Blanks Bruins for second shutout
Bishop stopped all 23 shots he faced in Friday's 1-0 overtime win over the Bruins.
The 31-year-old had allowed 11 goals over his last three starts, but he shook off that poor form to record his second shutout of the season. Bishop now boasts a .920 save percentage through 13 games to go along with a solid 7-5-1 record.... See More ... See Less
Stars' Jason Dickinson: Provides another overtime goal
Dickinson was the only player to score in Friday's 1-0 overtime win over the Bruins.
Dickinson's overtime tally required a great deal of concentration, as he absolutely flew down the ice to track down the puck after Mattias Janmark's shot attempt was blocked by Tuukka Rask. This was the second game-winning goal in November for Dickinson, as he also had an overtime dagger against the Capitals on Nov. 3.... See More ... See Less
Stars' Ben Bishop: In goal Friday
Bishop will patrol the crease in Friday's home game against Boston, Sean Shapiro of The Athletic reports.
Bishop has struggled in the month of November, compiling a 1-1-1 record while posting an ugly 3.63 GAA and .889 save percentage through three appearances. The American netminder will look to get back on track and snap his two-game losing streak in a home matchup with a Bruins team that's only averaging 2.11 goals per game on the road this campaign, 27th in the NHL....

Stars' John Klingberg: Out five weeks minimum
Klingberg (hand) will be out of action for at least another five weeks, Matthew DeFranks of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Klingberg figures to be out of commission for a minimum of 17 games based on the timeline outlined by coach Jim Montgomery. The defenseman was bogged down in an eight-game goal drought prior to getting hurt, although he did manage to register five helpers during that stretch. Nearly half of the 26-year-old's points (six of 13) have been scored on the man advantage, where he is averaging 2:59 of ice time.... See More ... See Less
Stars' Gavin Bayreuther: Ascends to top rank
Bayreuther was called up from AHL Texas on Thursday.
Bayreuther lasted until the final cuts in training camp ahead of this season, so it might not be long before he doesn't have to depend on the health of other players to find ice time at the top level. However, in the meantime, he's serving as a replacement option for Marc Methot, who has moved to injured reserve with a lower-body injury. Bayreuther pauses his minor-league duties having accumulated five points to complement a plus-3 rating in seven games with Texas.... See More ... See Less
Stars' Marc Methot: Moved to IR
Methot (lower body) is on injured reserve per the NHL's media site.
Methot last played Nov. 1, so it's safe to say the decision to place him on IR was made retroactive to Nov. 2. Assuming that is, in fact, true, the veteran defenseman is eligible to return whenever he is deemed healthy and ready to play. Methot has missed his team's last six games with a lower-body injury and is without a point in nine appearances so far in 2018-19.... See More ... See Less
Stars' Devin Shore: Still 10 days away
Shore (lower body) will likely be sidelined for approximately 10 more days, Matthew DeFranks of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Shore's updated timeline suggests he'll likely be on the shelf until Nov. 24 against the Avalanche at a minimum. The Stars may opt to place the 24-year-old forward on injured reserve to open up a roster spot during his extended absence.... See More ... See Less
Stars' Benjamin Gleason: Sent to AHL affiliate
The Stars reassigned Gleason to AHL Texas on Tuesday.
Gleason's demotion suggests Marc Methot (lower body) will likely be ready to return to action Friday against the Bruins. The 20-year-old blueliner will return to a prominent role with AHL Texas, where he's notched two goals and six points in 11 appearances this season.... See More ... See Less
Stars' Anton Khudobin: Makes 26 saves in loss to Jackets
Khudobin stopped 26 of 28 shots in Monday's 2-1 loss to the Blue Jackets.
He came up with some huge stops to keep the Stars in the game, but the 32-year-old still suffered his first regulation loss since Oct. 16. Khudobin has been a rock-solid backup for Ben Bishop so far this season -- he hasn't allowed more than three goals in any of his six starts -- and while he's been between the pipes for four of seven games to begin November, unless Bishop gets hurt again, Khudobin's playing time is likely to remain inconsistent in the long run....

Stars' Devin Shore: Will miss at least one week
Shore is expected to miss the next 7-to-10 days after suffering a lower-body injury during Monday's game against the Blue Jackets, Matthew DeFranks of The Dallas Morning News reports.
The Stars have eight more games remaining in November and it appears that Shore will miss at least two of those contests while targeting next Monday against the Rangers as his first possible date back on the ice. A planned MRI on Tuesday will indicate whether the 24-year-old will need more of November off. Blake Comeau and Mattias Janmark are the top candidates to see increased time on the ice during Shore's absence.... See More ... See Less
Stars' Devin Shore: Suffers injury Monday
Shore (lower body) left Monday's game against Columbus and will not return.
Shore took an awkward spill into the boards with his leg tucked under his body and immediately went back to the locker room, fortunately under his own power. He should be considered day-to-day until the team provides another update.... See More ... See Less
Stars' Brett Ritchie: Playing Monday
Ritchie (infection) will return to the lineup on Monday, Matthew DeFranks of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Ritchie missed four straight games, last suiting up on Nov. 3. Still, he has just one assist in 11 games this season and will slot into the fourth line, limiting his fantasy potential.... See More ... See Less
Stars' Alexander Radulov: Activated off injured reserve
Radulov (lower body) was taken off injured reserve ahead of Monday's matchup with Columbus, per the NHL media site.
Radulov was already confirmed as being in the lineup by coach Jim Montgomery, but needed to be officially activated off IR before he could suit up. The winger will slot back into the Stars' top line along side Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin, as well as returning to the power play, where he has tallied five points while averaging 4:26 of ice time.... See More ... See Less
Stars' Connor Carrick: Still not close to returning
Carrick (foot) will miss a minimum of three more weeks, Bruce LeVine of Dallas Star Radio reports.
Carrick (foot) last played Oct. 28, and won't be returning anytime soon, according to head coach Jim Montgomery. A minimum of three additional weeks of recovery time means the 24-year-old will miss the next 12 games, and possibly more. In nine appearances, Carrick has a goal and four points.... See More ...

Stars' Anton Khudobin: Between pipes Monday
Khudobin will tend the twine for Monday's home matchup with Columbus, Sean Shapiro of The Athletic reports.
Khudobin's strong play of late -- he is 2-0-1 with a 1.95 GAA in his last three outings -- has seen him flipping starts with Ben Bishop. The 32-year-old Khudobin will be making his fourth start in the Stars' last seven outings, as coach Jim Montgomery employs an even 50-50 goalie split. In five career matchups with the Blue Jackets, the 32-year-old is 3-1-1 with a .927 save percentage.... See More ... See Less
Stars' Marc Methot: Unavailable Monday
Methot (lower body) won't be in the lineup against Columbus on Monday, Sean Shapiro of The Athletic reports.
Methot hasn't played since Nov. 1 due to his lower-body issue, a stretch of five games. When healthy, the blueliner is averaging a career-low 16:56 of ice time and is still looking for his first point of the 2018-19 campaign. Despite his reduced minutes, the Ontario native should still crack the lineup on a regular basis once given the all-clear to play.... See More ... See Less
Stars' Roman Polak: Ready to go Monday
Polak (illness) will suit up against the Blue Jackets on Monday, Sean Shapiro of The Athletic reports.
Polak -- who missed Saturday's matchup with Nashville due to illness -- appears to be healthy and ready for Monday't tilt. The blueliner has seen an uptick in ice time of late (20:41 in his last four games), but his defensive-style of play is unlikely to result in a lot of offensive production. In 14 appearances this season, the Czech has managed a lone goal and has broken the 20-point mark just once in his NHL career.... See More ... See Less
