This is the play Devin Shore got injured on. He will not return tonight. pic.twitter.com/FJbbytFSfj— Matthew DeFranks (@MDeFranks) November 13, 2018
Shore, who entered the evening fourth on the team in scoring, will be out for the next week or two at the least:
Shore (lower body) to have an MRI tomorrow. Stars thinking he’ll be out 7-10 days.— Mark Stepneski (@StarsInsideEdge) November 13, 2018
But hey, at least Dallas kept an impressive streak going against Columbus!
Wait, that’s a bad thing. Umm, quick! Look over there!
Other Stars News
Sean Shapiro was on NHL Network yesterday talking about the impact of Alexander Radulov:
Also from Shapiro: Ben Gleason and Joel Hanley are getting their chances in the big league, but life changes quite a bit when you’re an NHL call-up. [The Athletic]
The Stars weren’t the only Central team to play last night, as two of their divisional rivals also took the ice:
- Their hot start long behind them, the Chicago Blackhawks dropped their eighth straight in a 3-2 overtime loss to the Carolina Hurricanes. [Second City Hockey]
- The Nashville Predators also lost in overtime, falling 2-1 to the Anaheim Ducks in a shootout. [On the Forecheck]
Not Central-specific, but the Minnesota Wild became the third team in #MDK to join Down Goes Brown’s Top 5:
Weekend power rankings: Half the teams in the league suddenly look terrible, the Wild arrive in the top five, two new teams debut in the bottom five, and I think I might be in love with the Canucks. https://t.co/DgZMSt7TWr— Down Goes Brown (@DownGoesBrown) November 12, 2018
And in case you’re still living in denial about how crazy good this division is:
The induction ceremony for the Hockey Hall of Fame was last night. Here’s a look at what you might have missed while presumably watching the Stars play:
Jared Clinton lists out his top 10 candidates for next year’s class, including the top eligible defenseman... Sergei Gonchar? Wait no, that can’t be right. It’s really... Brian Boyle? [The Hockey News]
I mean seriously, what does Sergei Zubov have to do to get some recognition?
Nope, no comparison at all (and Zubov played in the trap-happy 90s much more than Boyle did). Playing for the Canadian Olympic team does not a best defenseman of his era make. (Reposted because labels are a necessary thing) pic.twitter.com/nZ49FO8BaV— Erin (@ErinB_DBD) November 12, 2018
Bad news for former Star Jack Campbell:
Former Dallas Stars' 1st round pick, and Texas Stars 2014 Calder Cup winner, Jack Campbell suffered a torn meniscus on this play. The Kings announced today that Campbell will have surgery and is expected to miss 4-6 weeks. https://t.co/cJQcnlrCjm— Owen Newkirk (@OwenNewkirk) November 13, 2018
