    Why Corey Perry Is My Least Favorite Human Being

    Here's another reason hockey is my favorite thing. See also: Our British Texan Falls in Love With the Stars Hockey has some real pantomime villains. Soccer, sure, there were some bad guys. Luis Suarez, for instance, is very keen on biting people, as you do. He was also suspended for being a racist ... More >>

    Our British Texan Discovers the Dallas Stars and Falls Madly in Love with Weird-Ass Hockey

    Two years ago, when I arrived in the States from the UK, I had a very vague idea of what ice hockey was. I was, though, sure that it was one of the most far-fetched sports out there. While most sports are played on the sort of easily accessible field we can all find and involve a ball, hockey is pla ... More >>

    Jamie Benn: Cornerstone of a Stars' Revolution

    In this week's Dallas Observer we profile 20 of the metro area's most interesting characters, with new portraits of each from local photographer Can Turk. See the entire Dallas Observer People Issue here. In Game 4 of this year's short but impressive playoff run, the Dallas Stars were down 2-0 in t ... More >>

    The Dallas Stars -- and the Refs -- May Have Saved Their Season Last Night

    ​Nauseated by the Mavs last night, I turned on the Dallas Stars. And what did I see? A team maybe saving its season. The Stars have had their share of bad-luck bounces lately. But last night in Anaheim they saved a gasp of their season with two controversial calls that disallowed goals by t ... More >>

    Stars Lose What Felt Like a Playoff Game to Dastardly Ducks

    ​If the Dallas Stars wind up missing the NHL playoffs they'll have a crazy bounce and crotch-kick, 4-3, loss on March 23 to blame. I don't watch a lot of hockey but last night's tilt had a post-season atmosphere at American Airlines Center. The Stars were seconds away - literally - ... More >>

    Is This the Last Game in Dallas for Mike Modano?

    ​Don't know what you're doing tonight, but if you want to say goodbye to the face of Dallas hockey you'd better head down to the American Airlines Center. Because tonight's game against the Anaheim Ducks will likely be the last home appearance in the star-studded career of Mike Modano. He arr ... More >>

    Thanks to Stephane Robidas’ broken nose, the Dallas Stars finally broke their streak. Robidas, playing with a bulky cage protecting his injured nose, tied last night’s Game 6 and then set up Stu Barnes’ game-winning goal 52 seconds later as the Stars -- I hope you’re sitting down -- actually ...

    Anaheimlich Maneuver

    Well, that was fun. We spent Tuesday getting our asses handed to us by Southern California, by a combined score of 11-6. First, the Texas Rangers bumbled their way to a 7-4 loss, followed by the Dallas Stars' humbling 4-2 defeat at the wings of the Mighty Ducks. The good news: The Mavs finish the r ... More >>

    Monday Morning Meanderings

    Dallas Stars OK, sure, we believe, already. For now, anyway. After spending their first and only day over .500 in the Ron Washington Era, the Texas Rangers got swept at home by the Toronto Blue Jays over the weekend. Even more humiliating, they found a pitcher worse than Chan Ho Park. Something to ... More >>

    Lock It Down? Or Wrappin' It Up?

    Dallas Stars I spent Tuesday out at Dallas Stars practice, which, I know, surprises some of you in that, whaddya know, they’re still playing hockey these days. In preparation for tonight’s Game 1 of their playoff series against the defending champion Anaheim Ducks, I came away with a couple th ... More >>

    Anaheimlich Maneuver We kinda like the idea of the videogame version of Marty Turco between the pipes rather than the real deal come playoff time. The Dallas Stars are in post-season form. Which, of course, is horrible news. As has become a dreaded spring tradition, they're again teasing, tantalizing but, ultim ... More >>

    All Stars?

    Amos Lee is playing the NHL All-Star game at the AAC? There's one more reason not to like hockey right there. Robert Randolph and The Family Band? The Wreckers? The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus?

    Slapshot in the Face

    In case you missed it--and I know you did--the Dallas Stars' first-round flop is looking more embarrassing by the day. With Mavs-Spurs and the EDS Byron Nelson Classic in our faces this week it's difficult to think about the Stars. But what's happening to the team that beat them--the Colorado Avalan ... More >>
