Dallas Stars Struggling Power Play At Home

dallas_stars_2013The Stars are the only NHL club without a power-play goal at home. To put that into perspective, consider that St. Louis has scored a league-high 13 goals in 12 home games.

We’re not satisfied as a group with the way our power play has been going,” captain Jamie Benn said. “There’s a lot more room for improvement.”

The Stars have played a league-low seven home games and been “a little bit snake bit” on power-play chances, coach Lindy Ruff said Wednesday. The relevant item is the Stars are 0-for-24 on the power play at home.

With six of the next nine games at home, the Stars must solve this peculiar problem as soon as possible or risk squandering an advantageous portion of the schedule.
