But once Teuvo Teravainen ’s hot streak started, they collapsed. And if fans felt frustrated, at least they weren’t alone, writes Mike Heika of The Dallas Morning News:
Goalie Ben Bishop, who made 23 saves, walked off the ice and into the visiting locker room at PNC Arena and smashed his stick on the hallway door.
Teravainen's power-play goal at 2:39 in the third broke a 1-1 tie.
"They go up 2-1, and instead of responding there, we end up kind of folding," Bishop said.
Captain Jamie Benn called the loss “embarrassing,” and he says the team plans to right the ship tonight in Sunrise:
The chance to play Tuesday at Florida and again Thursday at Tampa Bay means the Stars won't have to stew on Monday's loss.
"We want to get right back into it and regroup and redeem ourselves," Benn said. "We're going to forget about this one pretty quick and get ready for tomorrow."

Bruce LeVine tweeted a reminder about last year’s road record that Stars fans probably didn’t need or want, but this is where we are right now.

The Z-word has been in the wind this week, as even the FOX Sports Southwest crew wondered aloud if John Klingberg could be the second coming Stars fans have been waiting for.
Around the league(s)
Last night’s Hockey Hall of Fame induction meant the NHL was practically dark (and especially dark if you were in Raleigh – it’s a joke! a Starsing joke, lulz). The only other game on offer happened to be an #MDK joint, with the St. Louis Blues getting torched by the Calgary Flames, 7-4. [Matchsticks and Gasoline]

Manon Rhéaume stopped seven shots for the Tampa Bay Lightning, yet she changed the trajectory of women’s hockey for generations. Is she worthy of a HHOF nod as a Builder? Ryan Kennedy looks at the case.
