In the Stars 49 games this season, only three teams (Detroit 4-1, Phoenix 4-1, Minnesota 2-1) have kept the Stars from scoring atleast two goals in the game. This is the longest the team has gone without being shutout since they moved to Dallas in 1993. The previous mark was held by the inaugural 1993-94 Dallas Stars squad who were first shutout in their 38th contest of the season. The franchise mark for consecutive games from a start of a season without being shutout is held by the 1982-83 team who were shutout only once and that came in their 79th game.
The Dallas Stars are now 8-0 in shootouts this season, having beaten Colorado in Denver on Nov. 5 (2-0), the Sharks in San Jose on Nov. 12 (2-0), the Hurricanes on Dec. 2 (2-1) in Dallas, the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim on Jan. 6 (2-1) in Dallas, the Boston Bruins on Jan. 14th (1-0) in Boston, the Blues on Jan. 25th (2-0) in Dallas, the Avalanche in Denver on Jan. 26th (2-1), and the Red Wings on Jan. 28th (3-2) in Dallas.

Dallas is now one of only two teams to not lose in the shoot out, the other team is Los Angeles. Detroit lost their first shoot out againist the Stars.
When trailing after one period, the Stars are 10-10-1 on the season. And when trailing after two periods, the Stars are now 8-12-0 on the season. The 10 wins when trailing after 1 period is the best in the NHL this season and the 10 wins when trailing after 2 periods is also the best in the NHL this season. Dallas has won 21 games this season when falling behind some point during the game.
Jussi Jokinen's selection to Team Finland was the Stars' 7th player on the team to be selected. Other selections are Mike Modano (USA), Bill Guerin (USA), Marty Turco (Canada), Niko Kapanen (Finland), Antti Miettien (Finland), and Jere Lehtinen (Finland).

Just congratulating you guys on your win. You played solid and had a lot of good scoring chances tonight. I think the game could have seen more goals on both ends if the goaltending was not so good. You deserved it tonight, and the better team won.
Man we can't buy a win in your arena! Its almost like the Preds can scratch in a loss whenever they play in Dallas
