After a full six days off, the Texas Stars (3-7-0-2, 7th Central) take the ice this weekend in search of their first win since October 19. It's a stretch of six games in which they've netted just a single point, a shootout loss in Milwaukee on October 25th. In the four games since, they've been outscored 24-10.
With so long between games, Texas was able to take it back to basics a bit. Shooting drills and hard skates were on the menu this week as the team searches for a spark somewhere. Luckily for the Stars, Colorado (5-6-0-0, 5th Pacific) comes in off a pair of midweek games against Ontario, one of which they won 4-0 and the other they lost 4-0.
