Stars Searching for Scoring Come Free Agency

The old adage goes, “to wish upon a shooting star,” but what happens when the stars are shooting blanks? Hell, relatively speaking, the Dallas Stars are barely shooting at all, with a 23rd-ranked 30.6 shots per game (and a 26th-ranked 2.58 goals). The wild-card Columbus Blue Jackets (2.57 goals) are the only playoff team to rank below the Stars. And they only have a single-point edge on ninth place, albeit with the season on hiatus. Granted, general manager Jim Nill’s Stars are the except...

More than a week after President Donald Trump said he would authorize the use of a wartime-era law to force General Motors to produce ventilators, the company still hasn't received a formal order from the federal government. GM, as a result, hasn't allowed private companies or hospitals to place orders, according to a source familiar with the matter.

Hindsight 2020: What if Patriots had traded Jimmy Garoppolo sooner?
