Will The Stars Make The Playoffs?

from Mike Heika of the Dallas Stars Blog at the Dallas Morning News,

I’m not sure if they just don’t have it…or if maybe the other teams are just better right now….

If 88 points is the place the Stars need to be to have a place in the post-season discussion (because 88 points could get one team in and leave one team out), then is 7-5-0 too much to ask?

more on the Stars and below are the NHL expanded standings as of this morning…

Stars Health Improving

from DallasStars.com,

The Stars have managed to keep their head above water through some challenging times. The team has played significant time without the services of Brenden Morrow, Sergei Zubov and Brad Richards. Lately it has been Jere Lehtinen, Toby Petersen, Mark Parrish and Fabian Brunnstrom who have succumbed to the injury bug.

The Stars got some good news on Monday, as Richards, Lehtinen and Brunnstrom each practiced with the team. All have a chance to play on this current road trip, including Richards – who might be available later in the week.

Modano Admits His Head Wasn’t In The Game

from Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News,

“We expect more from Modano than what he gave us tonight,” Stars coach Dave Tippett said. “And without that, it’s going to be bad for us.”

Modano has one goal in his last 20 games. He was minus-3 against the Canadiens in 20:45 of ice time.

“Tonight was a mental thing,” Modano said. “You could tell the head wasn’t there, and your body’s not too far behind without focus or concentration. There are nights when it’s a struggle and that’s what you deal with. When your body isn’t feeling good and you’re not feeling light, things all add up to missed passes and the little things as far as trying to make those plays.”

Turco Goes For A Skate

via Richard Durrett of the Dallas Stars Blog at the Dallas Morning News,

Marty Turco skated behind his net to try to play the puck on a rim-around and missed it. The puck came out to Christopher Higgins on the side boards and he flipped in into a wide open net.

The goal put the Canadiens up 3-1 and that is how the game ended.

Ryan Now #9 In Honor Of Modano

from Curtis Zupke of Ducks Blog at the OC Register,

There was symbolism when Bobby Ryan scored his highlight-reel goal in the third period against Dallas on Friday.

Ryan was playing his first game wearing jersey No. 9. The Ducks gave it to him per club tradition for players who have established themselves. Ryan also happened to have worn the number as a kid in homage to his favorite player: Modano.

The 38-year-old future Hall of Famer smiled when told that last tidbit.

“It gives you an idea of how long you’ve been around,” Modano said. “It’s kind of neat to see that he did that.

“He’s going to be a fun kid to watch. It seems like he’s going to have a great career. Great skill, great hands. Obviously, on that second goal he made a great move. It lets you know you’re kind of getting up there.”

As Expected, Avery On Waivers

via TSN Ice Chips,

The Stars placed exiled forward Sean Avery on waivers Monday. The team that claims him, likely the Rangers, would split the remainder of his four-year, $15.5 million contract with the Stars. If no team makes a claim, Dallas would likely return him to the minors.

I heard Bob McKenzie on one of the numerous radio shows today and he said the Rangers would have to clear some cap space in order to put Avery on their roster.

Update 3:30pm ET: More at TSN

The New York Rangers may well have cleared the way to allow Sean Avery to make his return to the Big Apple by assigning forward Mark Bell to the Hartford Wolf Pack of the AHL on Monday.

Avery was placed on waivers by the Dallas Stars’ earlier in the day, with all signs pointing towards the Rangers willing to pick up the controversial forward for his second tour of duty in New York.  By sending Bell to the AHL, the team has freed up some space under the salary cap.
