The Dallas Stars are of the opinion that combining something old with something new will prove to be the key to bringing the team back to the glory days they enjoyed when they won the franchise's only Stanley Cup in 1998-99.
Loaded with offensive weapons and looking to be a team on the rise, the Stars were sidetracked by their inability to play shutdown defense. So they turned to the man who once turned them into masters of that discipline, coach Ken Hitchcock, the man behind the bench with the defense-first Stars won the Stanley Cup.

How To Win At Dallas Stars Betting
This team loves to score goals. The Stars led the NHL in that department during the 2015-16 season with 265 — almost 20 more than second-place Washington. The Stars set averaged of 3.23 goals per game, which means taking the over in many instances, is the right bet.
Captain Jamie Benn is a past NHL scoring champion, and is annually a threat to score 40 goals and flirt with 100 points.
As impressive as the Stars’ offense was last season, they say championships are won with defense — an area Dallas needs to improve on if it stands a chance at capturing another Stanley Cup.
The Stars are back on the rise after several seasons of missing the playoffs from 2008 to 2013. After relocating from Minnesota in 1993, the Stars made the playoffs right out of the gate in their first year in Dallas.
Just four years later, the Stars put Dallas on the hockey map after winning the Stanley Cup in 1999 under head coach Ken Hitchcock. That same year, the team won the Presidents’ Trophy as the league’s top club with a 51-19-12 record.
Mike Modano, who was part of that 1999 championship team, sits at the top of the franchise’s all-time scoring list with 1,359 points in 1,449 games in a Stars uniform. Modano’s 557 goals and 802 assists with Minnesota/Dallas also remain as all-time franchise bests.
