It’s good to be on a roll. At 8-8-1, the Dallas Stars have nearly played their way out of the deep and worrying pit of October. It was somehow fitting that they made level with a big divisional win over the Colorado Avalanche, whose own hot start has cooled off after injuries to key players.
Even better, this run has the team proclaiming the mystery of faith, in themselves. Stars senior staff writer Mike Heika devoted his latest post to their newfound swagger – even without their own leading lights like Roope Hintz and John Klingberg, who left the game with an injury last night.
