The 1994–95 Dallas Stars season was the twenty-eighth season in franchise history and the second in Dallas, Texas. Injuries to forward Mike Modano caused him to miss 18 games, more than a third of the 48-game regular season, and finished with 29 points (12 goals, 17 assists). As a result the Stars didn't have the same offensive power they had had in 1993-94, when Modano scored a career-high 50 goals and relied on Dave Gagner to pick up the slack, which he did, leading the team in goals, assists and points. Despite finishing the season on a 4-game losing streak for a 17-23-8 record, Dallas still scored more goals (136) than they allowed (135).
