On their latest road trip, the Dallas Stars went 3 for 3, proving to themselves and the league that they are warriors, at home and on the road. After a 4 -3 win over the Ottawa Senators, the Stars traveled to Boston to face familiar foes: former Stars’ players Loui Eriksson and Reilly Smith. The homecoming of Tyler Seguin and Rich Peverley lived up to the hype as the two scored in the shootout to provide the Stars with a win over the Bruins.
Their latest stop, Detroit, provided another exciting overtime game. A power play goal late in the third period by Cody Eakin helped the Stars guarantee one point. In overtime, a great pass by Valerie Nichushkin to Rich Peverley solidified the road trip sweep.

The Stars’ top goal scorers are all under the age of 24 (Benn, Seguin, Chiasson, Eakin). Their talent, youth, tenacity, and the experience of veteran defensemen have lived up to Dallas’ marketing campaign of a new “victory” franchise and they have proven that with this last series. The Stars look to continue their winning streak against the defending Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks at the American Airlines Center on Saturday, November 9th.
