Dallas Stars Looking To Fly Past Philadelphia


After an exhilarating 6-5 win over Carolina, the Dallas Stars clash with Eastern Conference Opponent Philadelphia Flyers on Friday night.

On Tuesday night, the Dallas Stars blew a 5-1 fourth period lead, allowing the Carolina Hurricanes to score four goals in less than 11 minutes, tying the game up at four.

Luckily for the Stars, Patrick Sharp scored the game-winner with just :18.5 seconds left, avoiding disaster for the second time in a week.

The victory green are back on the ice Friday night, clashing with the Philadelphia Flyers.

Puck drop is at 7:30, and the game can be watched on Fox Sports Southwest (FSSW), and the radio broadcast will be on 1310 AM/96.7 FM The Ticket.

Records and Scores

The Dallas Stars come in to Friday’s match-up with the most points (44) in the NHL. Their 21-5-2 record is their best start in franchise history, and the victory green are looking to continue their hot streak.

The Flyers of Philadelphia are 12-11-6 (30 points) and stand in sixth place in the Metropolitan Division in the Eastern Conference.

Story lines

Four for the leaders

Both Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin had four points a piece in Tuesday’s 6-5 win. The dynamic duo are tied for second in the entire NHL in points, both recording 39 points thus far.

The two front-liners have anchored this team for three seasons now, and they are once again putting their dominance on display.

Glimpse Of 2014

Although the Stars defeated the Hurricanes on Tuesday, Dallas still blew a 5-1 lead in the third period, allowing Carolina to score four unanswered goals to tie things up.

Dallas scored the game-winner with just seconds remaining, but it was much closer than it needed to be.

While the Stars have been somewhat inconsistent as of last, they’re still the best team in hockey right now, which is important not to forget.

Rest Days

The Stars not only won, but also had Wednesday and Thursday to rest and prepare for back-to-back games tonight and tomorrow.

To add to Dallas’ benefit, the Flyers played last night in St. Louis, and had to travel to the 214 late last night.

Injury Report

With Jason Demers returning from injury tonight, the Dallas Stars are at full health.

For the Flyers, Sam Gagner recently suffered a concussion, and will be out of tonight’s game. Also, Luke Schenn will be out tonight due to a lower body injury.

The Dallas Stars are playing the best hockey out of all 30 teams in the league.

More from Blackout Dallas

While the Stars are coming off two days of rest, the Flyers just played the Blues last night.

On top of that, the game was in St. Louis, so the Flyers had to travel back to Philly late last night.

Even without taking that into consideration, the Stars are the better team, and have had success against Eastern Conference teams this season.

I like Dallas winning this one, and heading into St. Louis tomorrow with momentum after a 4-2 victory.
