Home ice advantage? What home ice advantage? The Dallas Stars are one of those peculiar teams that haven’t had much luck in their own building, but can regularly scorch opponents outside of their barn. This multipurpose Victory Park facility doesn’t seem to be haunted, so there’s no reason why the Stars can’t get back to earning Ws away from the road.

Dallas Stars Stadium

The Stars shifted from the Reunion Arena to the American Airlines Center in 2001, just as Dallas’ time as a regular Stanley Cup contender was coming to a close. In the American Airlines Center era, Stars fans have been able to buy a ticket and see notable names like Mike Modano, Jere Lehtinen and Jamie Benn play for their home squad. The best moment in the building’s history? We’d say it’s a toss-up between Brandon Morrow’s quadruple OT winner in 2008 that knocked San Jose out of the second round and that magical March 2014 evening where franchise legend Modano had his #9 lifted to the rafters.

Warm memories don’t always guarantee a hot home hockey club. In 2014-15, the Stars were lackluster at home (17-16-8) and surprisingly strong (24-15-2) on the road. Attendance for Dallas home games has bounced up and down over the past half-decade. Last year’s heavily hyped team was able to coax a 93.6% turnout, a major boost compared to the 79.1% attendance of the year previous.
