Is the Stars’ return to high-event hockey a trend or an aberration? Taylor joins Wes and Tyler to examine the case.

NHL: Minnesota Wild at Dallas Stars Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

On Tuesday night, the Dallas Stars made an exhilarating return to high-event hockey – but only after 39 exasperating minutes of plodding system service. Is this new look a trend or an aberration? Taylor joins Wes and Tyler to examine the case.

On the menu:

  • What stood out most in this stark before-and-after picture?
  • Is the team simply regressing to the mean after a long and arid streak of terrible puck luck?
  • Does this mean more from scoring lines that don’t have Roope Hintz on them?
  • And are we seeing the system Jim Montgomery has said he’s always wanted click into place?

What will you look for when the Stars’ Central Division schedule finally gets rolling? Discuss.
