Penalty, scoring woes continue as Stars fall to Coyotes

It’s becoming a broken record, but penalties plagued the Dallas Stars again in Saturday night’s loss at Phoenix. So did the lack of scoring on the road, as the 2-0 final score indicates.

But it’s hard to get things going offensively when you spend a lot of time killing penalties. The Stars were shorthanded seven times Saturday night. They spent almost 12 minutes, or one-fifth of the game killing penalties.

“It’s the volume of them,” said Stars center Vernon Fiddler. “I think our PK’ers are doing a great job, but our top guys are sitting on the bench and they can’t get things offensively going. Their legs are tired when they get going because they’ve been sitting there so long. It’s gone on last year, it’s gone on the beginning of this year, and it’s something that we have to figure out right away.”

The Stars had just one power play in the game and it was an abbreviated one, lasting 41 seconds. For the season the Stars have had 28 power plays and have been shorthanded 45 times. That’s a minus-17 differential of power plays versus times shorthanded.
