We have non-conference NHL hockey to discuss for Tuesday night when the Dallas Stars of the Western Conference meet the Eastern Conference's Washington Capitals for what could be a terrific battle. Dallas is 0-3 this season and their probable starting goaltender for tonight is Ben Bishop. Washington is off to a 2-0-1 start to their season and their probable goaltender is Braden Holtby.
 
 
 
 
 

Dallas Three One Goal Losses

Dallas is off to an unlucky start to their season with three-successive one loss games with two of those losses on their current three-game road trip that ends Tuesday night in Washington. The Stars are competitive and that is a good thing to see. Dallas lost by a score of 4-3 to the Detroit Red Wings and was led by Roope Hintz with a pair of goals and Tyler Seguin potted his first goal of the year in a losing cause for Dallas.

Jason DickinsonBlake Comeauand Roman Polak are all out for Dallas for Tuesday night’s game with Washington. These aren’t major injuries but significant as each is solid rotation players for the Stars
Bishop (0-2, 2.58) has been strong this season with just three goals allowed over 50 shots faced. Losing two-one goal games without allowing more than two goals must be frustrating for Bishop but he plays on a team that hasn’t found the back of the net often enough for Bishop to win. The veteran netminder is up against a Capitals offense that has scored seven goals over their three games this season and Bishop will need to be at his best if the Stars are to defeat the Capitals on Tuesday night.
 
 
 
 

Washington Overtime Loss to Carolina

Washington is off to a strong, 2-0-1 start to the 2020 season and is coming off a tough overtime loss Sunday evening against the Carolina Panthers. T.J. Oshie scored his second goal of the season and Garnet Hathaway tallied the other Capitals goal. Washington had six shorthanded opportunities and failed to score on any of them and Braden Holtby allowed three goals over 28 shots on goal for his first loss of the season.

Holtby (1-0-1, 2.37) is having a strong start to his season and Corsica Hockey lists Holtby as one of the top goaltenders thus far this season. Holtby has stopped 45 of the 50 shots he’s faced and has a top 10 xSV% of 91.53 percent that is much higher than his 90 percent save percentage. Holtby is facing a Dallas offense that has sputtered more than it’s sparked and has scored six goals over its last three games.
