A CLOSER LOOK AT THE STARS’ 82-GAME SCHEDULE
The Stars are scheduled to play 82 games during the 2013-14 campaign, with 41 contests at home and 41 on the road. The NHL approved a new realignment and division-based playoff format in March that placed Dallas in a more geographically friendly division. As part of the new realignment plan, Dallas will now be in a division with Chicago, Colorado, Minnesota, Nashville, St. Louis and Winnipeg. Dallas’ placement in the new division means that most divisional road games will now start between 7:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m., changing from the 9:00 p.m.-or-later start times that were common in the past.

The Stars schedule breaks down in the following format:

vs. Division Opponents (29 Games):
Five games vs. five teams (3 home/2 away vs. three teams; 2 home/3 away vs. two teams).
Four games vs. one team (2 home/2 away) with teams rotated on a yearly basis.

vs. Western Conference Opponents (non-division, 21 Games):
The Stars will play their other non-division Western Conference opponents 21 times (Anaheim, Calgary, Edmonton, Los Angeles, Phoenix, San Jose, Vancouver), facing off against each club three times (2 home/1 away vs. three teams; 1 home/2 away vs. four teams).

In total, Dallas plays 50 games against their Western Conference foes.

vs. Eastern Conference Opponents (32 Games):
Also new for 2013-14, the Stars will now faceoff against Eastern Conference teams two times each season (1 home/1 away), ensuring that every team will play in every building at least once this season.

In total, Dallas plays 32 games against their Eastern Conference opponents.

The home portion of the schedule features 19 weekend contests (6 Friday, 10 Saturday, 3 Sunday).

The Stars longest homestand of the season is five games, which happens on two separate occasions. The first is from from Dec. 27 to Jan. 4 against Nashville (27th), St. Louis (29th), Los Angeles (31st), Montreal (2nd) and Detroit (4th); the second five-game homestand is from Jan. 21-30 against Minnesota (21st), Toronto (23rd), Pittsburgh (25th), Colorado (27th) and New Jersey (30th).

Dallas’ longest road trip of the season spans five games, from March 29 to April 6 versus St. Louis (29th), Washington (1st), Carolina (3rd), Tampa Bay (5th) and Florida (6th).

Dallas concludes the home portion of their schedule on Friday, April 11 against St. Louis. The club ends the regular season on Sunday, April 13 against the Phoenix Coyotes in Glendale, Arizona.

Winter Olympic Game Break
The NHL season will pause from Sunday, Feb. 9 to Wednesday, Feb. 26 as part of the NHL and NHLPA’s involvement in the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia. Dallas’ final game before the break is on Saturday, Feb. 8 at home against the Phoenix Coyotes. The club will return to action at home on Thursday, Feb. 27 against the Carolina Hurricanes.
