Johnny Oduya (lower body) might skate on Tuesday.

Oduya hasn't played since Nov. 19, but he's getting closer to rejoining the Stars. He has a goal and five points in 19 games this season.

Tyler Seguin has been tweaking his shot lately.

"In Detroit I was angry about my execution, I had a lot of looks," Seguin said. "So I changed my shot a little, tried to hit it not as hard and maybe a little more accurate, and I had two good looks the last two games." That game against Detroit was the 11th straight where he failed to find the back of the net. He's scored a goal in each of the two games that followed. That gives him nine goals and 27 points in 26 contests this season.

There is a good chance that Gemel Smith could be recalled from the AHL on Monday.

The Stars are short a forward due to Patrick Sharp's concussion and Smith is the most likely candidate to replace him on the roster. Of course the Stars could go in another direction, so check back with us on Monday.

Tyler Seguin scored a goal and an assist as the Dallas Stars beat the Colorado Avalanche 3-0 on Saturday.

The assists were mostly there for Seguin lately, but he had been struggling a bit - at least by his terms - to find the net. Now he has a two-game goal streak and a four-game point streak (2G, 3A). Seguin has nine goals and 27 points in 26 games so far in 2016-17.

For the first time during a truly miserable 2016-17 season, Kari Lehtonen generated a shutout.

Lehtonen had a pretty light Saturday, as the Dallas Stars limited the Colorado Avalanche to 23 SOG in a 3-0 win. Lehtonen came into this game on a three-game losing streak with a putrid .885 save percentage, so this could be a huge confidence-builder for the goalie and his team.
Dec 3 - 11:41 PM

Adam Cracknell will return to the Stars' lineup against the Avalanche on Saturday.

Cracknell had been scratched the past two games. He's posted three points with 31 hits in 23 games so far this season. He'll skate to the right of Curtis McKenzie and Devin Shore.
Dec 3 - 6:29 PM

Curtis McKenzie will skate on the fourth line Saturday against the Avalanche.

McKenzie has been a scratch in six of the last seven games. Through 16 games he has posted three points with 26 PIMs and 31 hits. He's slated to skate to the left of Devin Shore and Adam Cracknell.
Dec 3 - 6:28 PM

Patrik Nemeth and Jamie Oleksiak will be scratched against the Avalanche on Saturday afternoon.

Nemeth is still searching for his first points of the season through 14 games this season. While Oleksiak has four points to his credit through 11 games. Meaning, neither have much fantasy value.
Dec 3 - 6:23 PM

Unfortunately, Patrick Sharp has been sidelined with concussion-like symptoms once again.

He must remain out at least a week, and he's been retroactively placed on I/R dating back to Dec. 1st. However given the complexity of concussions, and that this is the second time he's being sidelined with them this season, we wouldn't expect him back so quickly.
Dec 3 - 6:07 PM

Kari Lehtonen will draw in on Saturday against Colorado.

Lehtonen has gone 1-3-1 over his last five games with 17 goals against. Even if the Avalanche continue to struggle, you still may wish to find a more favorable matchup.
Dec 3 - 4:10 PM

The Dallas Stars have placed Patrick Sharp on I/R, retroactive to Dec. 1st.

No word on what the ailment is just yet. Hopefully it's not related to his previous concussion. Sharp has just two points in 11 games this season.
Dec 3 - 1:59 PM

Stephen Johns picked up his first point since returning to Dallas during Thursday's 6-2 loss to Pittsburgh.

Johns has had an up-and-down season to say the least, but getting back on the board must feel great. He now has five points in 18 games, and a point in two games since returning from the AHL.
Dec 2 - 12:30 AM

John Klingberg got back in the lineup and picked up his third point in five games, with a helper in Thursday's 6-2 loss to the Penguins.

Klingberg now has 10 helpers and 12 points in 23 games this season. Last season, he had 171 shots in 76 games, this time around he has just 29 shots in 23 games. Suffice it to say, a few more pucks on net could be helpful.
Dec 2 - 12:28 AM

Jason Spezza picked up his 10th point of the year during Thursday's 6-2 loss to the Penguins.

Spezza's sixth helper of the season was his second point in three games. It may be a stretch to expect him to hit the 60-point plateau again this season, but it looks like he's back up to speed.
Dec 2 - 12:26 AM

Patrick Eaves needed 54 games to notch 17 points last season, this time around he needed just 24.

The veteran forward picked up his eighth assist of the season during Thursday's 6-2 loss to the Penguins. Eaves' career has really turned around since joining Dallas two seasons ago. He has more goals (30) and points (61) with Dallas in 125 games than he did with Detroit, the next longest tenure where he played nearly 200 games.
