Marc Methot Out Another 4-6 Weeks

FRISCO, Texas -- Dallas Stars defenseman Marc Methot will be out 4-6 weeks with a knee injury.

Stars general manager Jim Nill said Methot, who hasn't played since Nov. 6 against the Winnipeg Jets, had his knee scoped on Sunday.

"The leg was coming around, started to get his rehab, and skating and it didn't get better," Nill said. "Decided to have an MRI and get it scoped."

With Methot out, the Stars recalled defenseman Julius Honka from Texas of the American Hockey League. Honka has no points in six games with the Stars this season.

Morning Line- Mark Spector On Connor McDavid

...the numbers don’t lie: minus-2 against St. Louis Thursday, and minus-2 again Saturday, despite a goal and two assists. Your best player simply has to be better than that, and McDavid’s line — with Pat Maroon and Drake Caggiula — was on the ice for three even strength goals by Dallas, with McDavid also on for a fourth.

Somehow, too many turnovers have mixed into McDavid’s game, resulting in odd-man rushes the other way after high-risk zone entry attempts go bad. In his own zone, the puck is getting behind his goalie too often, even if the reasons are ever-changing.

Part of being a superstar is playing as well without the puck, and being smarter with it than McDavid has been this season. Your best player has to be just that — at both ends of the rink — to have success.

-Mark Spector of Sportsnet on Connor McDavid.  Read more on the Oilers and their 6-3 loss to the Dallas Stars.

The 1-0-0 Vegas Golden Knights

from Ed Graney of the Las Vegas Review-Journal,

When you and your friends order another round in the coming years and someone suggests a game of Trivial Pursuit All-Star Sports, remember the name James Neal.

He just became an answer.

A few weeks ago, the guy wasn’t even skating. A few days ago, it was uncertain he would dress for the season opener of the Golden Knights.

Now, he’s the man who forever etched his likeness into the pages of the NHL expansion team’s record book.

Neal scored both third-period goals in a 2-1 win against Dallas at American Airlines Center on Friday night, allowing the Knights to depart the franchise’s inaugural game victorious.

“To see how happy the guys were to start the season with a new team and a fresh start, we all have an opportunity,” Neal said. “I started my career here in Dallas, so it was funny coming back here.”
