Depth scoring gives Stars a boost

After struggling to score early in the season, the Dallas Stars have turned things around recently. Getting Jamie Benn under contract and the return of Derek Roy from a groin injury have helped, allowing the Stars to get both their top two centers in the lineup. But an increase in depth scoring has played a big role in the recent offensive output as well.

Over the first 12 games, 19 of the Stars’ 25 goals (76 percent) came from the top six forwards. Over the last four games, 10 of the Stars’ 15 goals (67 percent) have come from guys not playing in the top six.

“We’re a team that is going to have to do it collectively,” said Stars coach Glen Gulutzan. “We need contributions from everybody.”

The contributions from depth players have helped. In the first seven games the Stars received goals from seven different players, and scored 13 total goals (1.86 per game). Over their last seven games they’ve received goals from 12 different players and scored 24 goals (3.43 per game).
