I don’t want to jinx anything, but do you realize that the Stars haven’t lost a game in two weeks? That’s phenomenal.
Last night, they rode into Anaheim, hoping for a Duck-hunt. After some pretty easy matchups (cough, cough Columbus), this felt like the first real challenge the Stars had faced all season. And they performed amazingly.
Loui set the tone when he scored just 13 seconds into the game, further proving to the world just how awesome he is (and perhaps how little Brad Richards really mattered to his playing ability). The undeniable star of the night, Loui added an assist on Ribs’ game-winning goal and got another goal himself just a little into the third period.
Claps for you, Loui.
Kari Lehtonen was excellent yet again. I don’t know how else I can say it. He had a lot of pressure on him at the beginning to step up, and he’s done so. If he keeps this up, he has great potential to be a Vezina candidate.
As much as I like George Parros, his elbow to Barchie wasn’t cool. He’s not a repeat offender, so he probably won’t be suspended, but I hope he never does it again.
At this point, I guess the Stars are supposed to lose to the Kings tonight. That will probably happen. But what if doesn’t? Damn, this season has been incredible. We’ve seen some good stuff. I can’t wait to see what comes of it all.
