The young Dallas Stars began this season hoping to make the playoffs and end a franchise-record postseason drought.
The slick-skating Stars used their speed to outplay Anaheim on Wednesday at the American Airlines Center. But a little fight was required to survive.
The Dallas Stars beat the Pacific Division leading Anaheim Ducks 6-3 on Tuesday night for their first home win in more than month.
Cody Eakin, Jamie Benn and Ray Whitney scored goals in the third period to break open a tie game and help the Stars cruise to a 5-1 victory over the Canucks on Thursday night.
Jaromir Jagr had his first multi-goal game since opening night, and the Stars ended the Kings six-game home winning streak with a 5-2 victory on Thursday night.
Loui Eriksson fought off two defenders to get his stick on a rebound and jammed it in 3:03 into overtime to give the Stars a 5-4 victory over the Blue Jackets on Tuesday night.
Mike Cammalleri had three goals and an assist in his return from a hip injury to help the Flames beat the Stars 7-4 on Wednesday night, and reach 200 career goals.
