Stars Have Been Fantastic on the Road

The Dallas Stars have sat atop the NHL standings for a better portion of the season and their stellar road record is a big reason why. The Stars are 12-3-2 outside of Dallas this season, which is good for the second-best road record in the league. A busy Saturday night schedule on the ice will feature the Stars packing their bags and visiting the St. Louis Blues.

Shark Bites
  • The Blues are 4-2 in their last six games against the Stars.
  • Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin have combined for nine goals and 13 assists in the past eight games.
  • The Stars are 4-1 in their last five games in St. Louis.

Dallas certainly did not slump into the Christmas break as they won four of their past five games while averaging 4.4 goals per game. The Stars are easily the best offense in the NHL as they have scored 123 goals on the season, 21 more than the second-place Montreal Canadiens.

The Blues close 2015 with four consecutive games against Central Division opponents, including back-to-back games against the Stars. If St. Louis wants to climb in the divisional standings, they will need Vladimir Tarasenko to continue his red-hot play. Tarasenko has notched six goals and five assists during a seven-game scoring streak heading into the break.
