BREAKING: Stars could use a win tonight

This headline format is winless in three — once for the Wild, once for the Flyers, the other time for the Canucks — so hopefully Stars fans don’t think we’re trying to jinx their team here. But after four straight regulation losses, there’s no doubt Dallas could use a win tonight in Manhattan versus the Rangers.

The Stars’ latest loss came last night in Newark, 1-0 to the Devils. Combined with Minnesota’s win in Phoenix, Dallas fell six points back of the final wild-card spot in the Western Conference.


“We are wanting to win, but we are not hating to lose,” said Dallas forward Tyler Seguin. “I think that is a big thing we need to fix.”

The Stars held a team meeting this morning ahead of their game-day skate at MSG. Whether that translates into a strong effort against the improving Rangers (coming off a “big” 3-2 victory in Chicago) remains to be seen.

    BREAKING: PHT is overusing “BREAKING” in their articles’ titles/headlines.

      they do this every week about a slumping team. I think it’s kind of a funny sarcastic theme.

        stars, wild, nucks and flyers have all been featured in the past several weeks.

        The sarcasm isn’t what’s lost on me; the humor is.

        I don’t know about you, but unless it’s worded poorly, i don’t often read many rip-roaringly funny headlines.

    BREAKING: so could the Canucks, and Sportsnet (channel 189 in Seattle) actually has the game on, thanks NBC.

    Everything is set up for the rangers to win this game. The momentum of a big win, Henrik playing lights-out against one of the best teams in the league, and PHT using their jinx of a headline on the Stars.

    All that said, with the way the rangers have played when expectations have been high, I predict a 6-1 Dallas win.
