Dallas Stars
Today, 6:00 PM on FSW+, MSG+
Prudential Center, Newark, New Jersey

What a nice way to open your 2016 new year than a date with the NHL’s top team from the West?

Of course, the schedulers probably weren’t thinking the Stars would be this good. However, as fate would have it, Dallas has become that team everyone is gunning for this season. It seems like every night, they are winning and looking to be unstoppable.

They are 28-8-3 with 59 points and lead the Washington Capitals by one point for the President’s Trophy. Away from United Airlines Arena, Dallas is 12-4-3. However, they have lost three of their past four road games, including being outscored 6-3 to the Columbus Blue Jackets on December 29th.

This will be the first time the Devils will play the Stars, as they will play host at the Prudential Center. The team is only .500 at home this season (8-8-3). But as the Blue Jackets proved, you don’t have to be dominant in your own building to have a chance at beating your opponent.

All you need is the will to win, and the Devils are certainly capable of that. Never retreat, never surrender.

I'm a blogger trying to make it in this world. Have been, and always will be, a fan of the NYR and NYG. Writing for the New Jersey Devils cause, well, someone has to do it!
