For every step forward, there had been a corresponding step backward. It’s made for a frustrating campaign that has kept them on the periphery of the playoff picture. For a franchise that underachieves […]

We’ll get to their recent run of good play here in a moment, but even then, facts are facts. At this moment, they’re out of a playoff spot and coming off a loss against the lowly Arizona […]

Even in good times, Dallas Stars marred by inconsistency https://sportdfw.com/2022/02/14/even-good-times-dallas-stars-marred-inconsistency/ https://sportdfw.com/2022/02/14/even-good-times-dallas-stars-marred-inconsistency/#respond Mon, 14 Feb 2022 13:22:25 +0000 https://sportdfw.com/?p=89489 Funny thing about the NHL’s dog days. The team you hitch your hopes to every fall and winter can post a stretch of 7-3-0, yet still not make up much ground in a congested wild card race. Such is the case for the Dallas Stars. You wouldn’t know it if you follow Stars’ Twitter, but […]

The Dallas Stars are still lurking in playoff contention https://sportdfw.com/2022/01/31/uneven-dallas-stars-still-lurking-in-playoff-contention/ https://sportdfw.com/2022/01/31/uneven-dallas-stars-still-lurking-in-playoff-contention/#respond Mon, 31 Jan 2022 13:04:43 +0000 https://sportdfw.com/?p=89268 Admittedly, the Dallas Stars have been an incredibly streaky team this season. The door has swung both ways as well. They’ve enjoyed separate winning streaks of seven games and two four-game runs, but they’ve also had losing streaks four, five, and three games. Inconsistency has been their frustrating calling card. All the while, the rest […]

Cowboys show true colors in yet another playoff flameout https://sportdfw.com/2022/01/17/cowboys-show-true-colors-yet-another-playoff-flameout/ https://sportdfw.com/2022/01/17/cowboys-show-true-colors-yet-another-playoff-flameout/#respond Mon, 17 Jan 2022 13:08:03 +0000 https://sportdfw.com/?p=89062 It really is quite amazing at this point. As sure as death and taxes, you can rely upon the Dallas Cowboys to embarrass themselves on a national stage and prove to everyone that they’re merely pretenders to the NFL throne. Sure, the cast of characters changes every few years, but the result is the same, […]

We can continue to argue about everything–and knowing us, we likely will–but the facts are the facts. After trouncing Philadelphia, 51-26, in the season finale on Saturday […]

For the record, I still believe that. I think that, when they’re taking care of their business, the Cowboys are capable of beating any one of their NFC […]

Yesterday was no different. After the game was over, I tuned into a particular local sports radio station to hear their take on Dallas’s uneven-yet-workmanlike 21-6 win over the New York Giants. […]

For one, the defense was dominant in the first half. Rookie linebacker Micah Parsons continued to burnish his case for not only defensive rookie of the year, but perhaps defensive […]

3 reasons the Dallas Stars are so hot: Pavelski, Hintz and Robertson https://sportdfw.com/2021/12/06/3-reasons-dallas-stars-are-hot/ https://sportdfw.com/2021/12/06/3-reasons-dallas-stars-are-hot/#respond Mon, 06 Dec 2021 13:30:31 +0000 https://sportdfw.com/?p=88487 Less than a month ago, things were looking pretty bleak for the Dallas Stars. On November 10th, they lost 4-2 to the Nashville Predators to put their record at 4-6-2. Certain factions of the fan base, brittle as we can be, latched on to any coach or front office member they could and called for […]
