Struggling Stars search for spark against Blue Jackets

While the Dallas Stars are searching for any kind of spark to turn around a historically rough start, facing the Columbus Blue Jackets on Wednesday might not help their cause.

Off to their worst start in nearly three decades, the visiting Stars look to also end their recent struggles against a Blue Jackets team aiming to win back-to-back games for the first time on the young season.

With the offseason additions of established stars Joe Pavelski and Corey Perry, Dallas had high hopes after pushing St. Louis to seven games in last year's Western Conference semifinals. Instead, it's been a nightmare beginning for the Stars at 1-5-1 -- the franchise's worst start since the Minnesota North Stars were in the same boat in 1990-91.
