After playing one of their best games of the year, the Dallas Stars are looking to grab another win in New York as they take on the Rangers tonight.
The Dallas Stars are sitting at a 4-4-1 road record right now, which is a major improvement from how they started the season.
Since starting out 0-3-0 on the road, the Stars have gone 4-1-1 and really put the worst of their road woes behind them for now.
The Stars have also gone 2-1-1 since losing John Klingberg, including an overtime loss to the Central-leading Predators. That’s probably better than many fans were expecting when Klingberg went down, but they’ve got a tough week coming up to keep staying at least above .500.

Ritchie hasn’t had a very good season so far, so it’s interesting to see Montgomery choose seven defensemen over having him in the line-up.
Clearly, the choice worked out well since the Stars won in spectacular fashion.
When Montgomery chooses to go back to six guys on defense, Julius Honka will probably be the odd one out. He had the lowest ice time on Sunday and has made some costly mistakes in recent games.
