Stars open homestand with 4-0 loss to Predators

The Dallas Stars opened a four-game homestand with a thud, losing 4-0 to the Nashville Predators Tuesday night at American Airlines Center.

“We needed to be better in a lot of areas,” said Stars coach Glen Gulutzan.

The Stars lost their second straight game and for the fourth time in their last six games at home, where they are 5-5-1 on the season.

“You have to take care of your games at home,” said Stars forward Ray Whitney, who returned to the lineup after missing 16 games with a broken foot. “It’s a tough schedule right now and everybody’s going to have a big homestand at some point with the amount of games we’re playing. And you’re not going to make the playoffs if you don’t play better at home and use that to your advantage.”

Added Gulutzan: “I think our starts are key. We’ve got to come out and be ready. We did everything right after we were down 2-0, and then we couldn’t score. We played soft. We didn’t go to the hard areas to score. We didn’t force it down their throat. We just thought we’d get some fluff, get a bounce or make a real nice play. You’ve got to jam it down their throat and come out after them. If you are not going to do that, then you are just fluff.”
