from Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News,

The Dallas Stars are the worst back-to-back team in the NHL over the past two seasons, falling to 1-15-2 on Wednesday after a disheartening 7-4 loss to the Calgary Flames.

And while the Stars struggle for explanations to their problems, the evidence is overwhelming that they simply cannot handle the issue of playing on back-to-back nights. Dallas was outscored 52-24 while going 1-11-2 last season. They have gone 0-4-0 this year while being outscored 12-5.
