The Dallas Stars will look to continue their strong start to the 2011-12 NHL season by finishing their homestand this weekend with a game against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday night.
The Stars will look to improve on a 3-1-0 record that has them on top of the Pacific Division by taking down the winless Jackets, who are 0-3-1 and in last place in both the Central Division and the Western Conference. And they may be able to refine their offensive approach, which Defending Big D labeled "conservative":
After four games we unequivocally know one thing about the 2012 Dallas Stars: they give up a ton of shots, and most nights they're going to get outshot. Despite the egregious shot totals the Stars are 3-1 through four games so something somewhere is working. You can call it luck if you like. The idea supporting luck is that if a team continues to get outshot at the rate the Stars are eventually they will be in a world of pain.
