Make it three-in-a-row for the good guys. And they've scored three goals in each. Come to think of it they now have three days off until the take the ice again. Hmmm, I detect a theme....
- Alex Goligoski responded to his recent healthy scratch with two helpers, one of which came on the power-play. Hopefully he can build on this effort.
- Loui Eriksson showed off that lethal wrister beating Fasth top shelf on the short-side, giving Dallas an insurance goal late. He's going to be just fine people. Fear not, unless your an opposing goalie, then you have much to be afraid of.
- The Stars were able to exploit one of the leagues worst penalty kill units for two goals on the man advantage. It could, should, have been three after that five minute major to Staubitz for his attempted neutering of Brenden Dillon. For now though getting any production from the power play is very welcome.
- The Stars finally outshot somebody!!! The shots ended up 28-21 in our favor. That's more like it!
- The kids are alright. Oleksiak, Dillon, and Eakin in particular just keep getting better and better every night. Roussel has quietly been good in his role as an agitator as well.
- Interesting bit that is both good and bad. I've never seen an entire line get sent off at the same time with penalties. Roussel, Fiddler, and Nystrom pulled off the feat in the final minute of the first. That's the bad, and it was mitigated somewhat by Perry and Souray getting tossed at the same time for the Ducks. The good is that they certainly had each other's backs.
- The Stars now have as many wins after 20 years in Dallas as they did in 26 seasons as the North Stars up in Minny, 758.
That's all I have for now. Enjoy the win!
