Sunday at Little Caesars Arena to Dallas
DETROIT — The Dallas Stars are beginning to play the way they want to and the Detroit Red Wings aren’t.Detroit plays host on Sunday at Little Caesars Arena to Dallas (5-4-0) Dallas Stars Hoodies Womens , which has won its last two games after struggling to begin the season.After the Stars’ 5-2 win over the Anaheim Ducks on Thursday night in Dallas, Dallas first-year coach Jim Montgomery told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram: “If you look at a picture of what Stars hockey should look like, that’s tonight. We possessed the puck. We were fast and physical. We defended well.”Article continues below ...Dallas does not lack offensive firepower. Center Tyler Seguin is the team’s top point producer with three goals and 11 points, right winger Alexander Radulov has four goals and six assists, defenseman John Klinberg leads the Stars with five goals and has nine points, captain and left winger Jamie Benn has four goals and four assists, and center Jason Spezza has contributed two goals and eight points.“We’re trending the right way and there are going to be a few more bumps in the road,” Montgomery said. “But sooner or later we are going to get to the level of play that you saw tonight. And it’s going to be fun for the city and fun for the fans.”Detroit (1-7-2) has the NHL’s worst record after Friday night’s 2-1 home loss to the Winnipeg Jets.The Red Wings led 1-0 after a solid first period but were dominated in the final 40 minutes. They were outshot 31-13 in the second and third periods and took too many penalties in the second period.But that was a much better effort than Detroit’s 3-1 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes on Monday at Little Caesars Arena.“The compete was way better Dallas Stars Hats Womens , no doubt about it,” Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill said. “We came out in the first, I thought we carried the play and we didn’t score on chances that we had opportunities to score on. I thought we could have walked out with a better lead. So I thought the effort and compete was very good.”Only a spectacular performance by goaltender Jimmy Howard, who made 38 saves, kept Detroit in Friday night’s game.“I think Jimmy’s played really well and obviously the second period (when Winnipeg outshot Detroit 21-4) he was outstanding, outstanding,” Blashill said. “They had some real good chances and they’re real shooters and I thought he was outstanding.”Friday night was also the season debut of Detroit defenseman Mike Green, who had been recovering from a virus that attacked his liver. He was minus-1 and had five shots in 20:27 of ice time.“I thought Greener was pretty good Custom Dallas Stars Jerseys ,” Blashill said. “He hasn’t played a game in a long, long, long time. I thought he came in and did a pretty good job.“He pushed the puck out of our zone. I thought he was good offensively, so I thought he did a good job.”The Red Wings have only 21 goals in their 10 games and two in their past two games, both scored by forward Andreas Athanasiou. With two games in two days, the surging San Jose Sharks are looking for a strong finish heading into the NHL’s Christmas break.They start on Saturday afternoon with a matchup against the league-worst Los Angeles Kings at SAP Center.San Jose opened a four-game homestand with a 5-3 loss to the Winnipeg Jets on Thursday, a blip on what’s been a pretty strong stretch of hockey in recent weeks.Article continues below ...“This might have been our best game in the last six games and it was the one we lost,” coach Peter DeBoer said. “We had a good effort. Some unfortunate bounces.” After losing a season-high four in row between Nov. 24 and Dec. 1 , the Sharks have won seven of nine. DeBoer told the San Jose Mercury News on Friday that the team talked about what they wanted to accomplish before the league goes on hiatus for three days.“We had a goal 10 days to two weeks ago and we talked about our last seven games heading into the break,” he said. “We’ve won four out of the five since we started talking about it, so we want to finish this off.”Following this game, San Jose (19-12-5) faces another Pacific Division opponent when the Arizona Coyotes visit on Sunday. The Sharks are 5-2-1 against division foes this season.Erik Karlsson said following the win over the Jets that San Jose expects to be among the league’s elite, but there needs to be a full-time effort in each game.“Today, we showed it in bits and pieces. … You can’t make small mistakes early in the game, it’s going to come back and cost you,” said the Sharks defenseman Detroit Red Wings T-Shirts Womens , who’s riding an eight-game assists streak.After putting up 98 points last season, Los Angeles (12-20-3) is at the bottom of the league and has the fewest goals scored with 78. Coming up on the halfway point, no player on the club has cracked double digits in goals. Dustin Brown has a team-high nine after scoring 28 last season, while Anze Kopitar has eight after a career-best 35 in 2017-18.The key to any sort of success this season, according to Drew Doughty, is shutting down the opposition.“The defensive style we play, that’s how we’ve got to win hockey games. That’s the bottom line. The only way this team is going to win hockey games is if we’re giving up max two goals a night,” the defenseman said after the Kings snapped a four-game winning streak with a 4-1 stunner over Winnipeg on Tuesday.That means better play from Jonathan Quick. He’s three wins shy of 300 Detroit Red Wings Hoodies Womens , but 0-4-1 with a 3.63 goals-against average on the road this season.Los Angeles has won four straight on the road and is 11-3-0 overall when allowing two goals or less in 2018-19.In the only previous meeting this season, Kevin Labanc scored in overtime to lift the Sharks to a 3-2 win over the Kings on Oct. 5 at Staples Center. San Jose and Los Angeles have split the last four meetings in Northern California and only one team in one game scored more than two goals.The Kings are expected to have Ilya Kovalchuk back in the lineup, according to Fox Sports West. The No. 1 overall pick in 2001 missed 10 games after ankle surgery.Kovalchuk returned to the league on a three-year deal in July, five years after leaving for the KHL. The 35-year-old winger has five goals and nine assists in 25 games this season.
