Dallas coach Lindy Ruff gets career win 600 against old club, Buffalo

When Lindy Ruff was an NHL hockey player for the Buffalo Sabres and New York Rangers, he gained a reputation as a player for his toughness, character and hard work on the ice as a left winger/defenseman.

He brought that same mentality behind the bench as one of the top coaches in the league.

Monday night, his Dallas Stars team defeated his former club, the Sabres, 3-2. The win earned the 54-year-old Ruff his 600th career win. Overall his record as a coach is 600-454-88 in 16 years.

Ruff was the head coach at Buffalo for 15 years, from the 1997-98 season until the middle of the 2012-2013 season. On February 20, 2013, the Sabres announced that Ruff had been relieved of his coaching duties. That ended his tenure as the NHL’s longest active-serving coach with one team and he was second only to Gregg Popovich of the San Antonio Spurs of the NBA as one of the longest-employed coaches in all of the four major sports in North America (NBA, NHL, NFL, MLB).

The Dallas Stars and their All-Star center Jamie Benn have agreed to a five-year, $26.25 million contract.

The 23-year-old star will be paid $5.25 million each season of the contract.

The Victoria, British Columbia native was a restricted free agent who set career highs with 26 goals, 37 assists and 63 points for the Stars during 2011-2012.

The 6’2, 205-pounder in four years with Dallas, he has played 222 games, scoring 70 goals, 90 goals for 160 points.



Ray Whitney leaves Phoenix for Dallas; gets two-year deal

40-year-old Ray Whitney is still coveted by NHL teams.

Eventhough his old team Phoenix couldn’t decide if they wanted to keep him, the Dallas Stars did not waste any time signing him.

The Stars signed him to a two-year, $9 million deal.

Only 5’10, Whitney said for years his size was always a problem for teams and now his age is, but Dallas did not care about either of the two negatives.

The 2011-2012 season was probably Whitney’s best season. He scored 24 goals, added 53 assists and a plus-26 rating.

The Detroit Red Wings continue to crank out the wins at venerable Joe Louis Arena,

On Sunday night, the Red Wings beat Philadelphia 4-3 to tie the NHL record for consecutive wins at home with 20.

Johan Franzen scored the winning goal in the third period. It was his 10th game-winning goal which leads the NHL.

The National Hockey League was set by the Boston Bruins during the 1929-30 season and also matched the Philadelphia record in 1976.

The Red Wings will have a chance to break the league record on Tuesday night when they host the Dallas Stars at Joe Louis Arena.

Detroit’s longtime captain and defenseman, Nicklas Lidstrom played in his 1,550th game, the most by an NHL player who has spent his entire career with one team. He broke the mark set by former Detroit hockey great Alex Delvecchio.

COLUMBUS, OHIO — The Dallas Stars are fighting for a playoff spot and if they have the lead going into the third period, the law of averages favors them.

The Stars are 16-0-0 when leading after two periods, which ties them for first in the league. The last time they have lost a game in regulation when leading into the third period, was on October 31, 2009. From that point forward, they are 57-0-5.

Thursday night at Nationwide Arena, the Blue Jackets discovered why the Stars are so good in protecting a lead as the visitors prevailed, 4-2.

The Stars went up 3-0 21 minutes into the game, but the Blue Jackets scored two power-play goals and then had several chances to get the tying goal in the final period but couldn’t get the puck passed Kari Lehtonen who had 26 saves.

Jamie Benn scored two goals, Stephane Robidas had a goal and an assist, and Mike Robeiro added two assists for the Stars who badly need points every game because they are 12th in the Western Conference but only two points behind 8th place Minnesota for the final playoff spot.

Columbus, who has looked more like a real team under interim coach Todd Richards, scored twice in the second period, both on power plays. Vinny Prospal and Rick Nash scored, while Fedor Tyutin and Derick Brassard garnered two assists each.

It was a tough night for two players, defenseman Marc Methot left the game with a broken jaw and right winger Jared Boll broke his foot.


*** NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman, met with the media before the game and was in attendance. Earlier in the day, he made the announcement of the 2013 Winter Classic between Detroit and Toronto at the University of Michigan’s football stadium.

*** Scouts were in the pressbox at Nationwide Arena with the trading deadline just 2 1/2 weeks away. The scouts were from Nashville, Ottawa, Detroit, San Jose, New Jersey, Montreal, Vancouver, Chicago, St. Louis and Tampa Bay.
