Game Day Notes Before Playing In Dallas Tonight

12/29/2018 at 3:19pm EST

from Dana Wakiji of DetroitRedWings.com,

While the Red Wings are trying to get back to the way they played a month ago despite missing some important players due to injury, the Dallas Stars are the focus of the hockey world after their CEO called out their top players in almost unprecedented fashion.

Stars CEO Jim Lites, the former Wings chief operating officer, called out Tyler Seguin and captain Jamie Benn in no uncertain terms Friday, telling the Dallas Morning News, "What nobody says is what is completely obvious to me: We are getting terrible play from our top two players."...

"No response. I hear the message," Seguin said. "I think Jamie and I hear the message. I think our whole team hears it. We know we got to play better, we understand that.. We're going to continue to work every day and keep getting better, come to the rink every day with the Stars in my heart, they're my team, where I wanted to be, why I signed here. I'll continue to work."

Said Benn: "Interested. Obviously I read the article and it is what it is. People have their opinions on the outside and all it really is is in a ways I think is knowing there's a situation within the organization I try to keep it within the organization and deal with it face to face, but that being said, I come to the rink every day and wear the Dallas Stars jersey proudly and play hard for the fans and my teammates in here."
