QUICK LINKS AND QUOTES

The Dallas Stars have a magical season being put together -- but only by one player. Will Tyler Seguin's big season be all for naught? -Defending Big D

“I’m not saying, comparing to what we did last year but we’re certainly not sweeping (the four losses) under a rug. We’re watching film. We’re aware of our mishaps, and we’re correcting them.

“We’re in a little bit of a rut right now. We’re at a time of the season where we’re battling adversity and we need to win.” -Kevin Bieksa

Correcting mistakes, like working on their D, which they are doing. How about cutting down on those odd-man rushes against? D getting caught pinching is so....late 90's and Marc Crawford era. Bury it.

“Ryan’s (Miller) been fine, it was a scheduled start for Eddie,” he said. “I’ve got the same confidence when they’re in the net. I feel good about both of them. That’s certainly way down on the list if I’m worried about the team. I think we have real good goaltending. I just think we are giving up too good of scoring chances. I don’t think it’s our goaltending. It’s what we’re giving up.” -Willie Desjardins.

A goalie controversy? NAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH
