Stars goalie Ben Bishop cautioned the team to concentrate on winning the first few games before thinking about making the playoffs.

"I always kind of set two goals: Win the first game and make the playoffs, and that's it," said Bishop, who will be in Dallas on Wednesday after training here. "Kind of go game by game there. You can't get too far ahead of yourself. You can't look six months down the road. You've got to focus on training camp and getting better. You've got to get those first two points before you can get four and six and what not. You've just got to focus on the short term. You can't look too far ahead.
