The last time the Stars won in Buffalo, this happened:
We won in Buffalo when it mattered the most, but up until last night’s game the Stars held a sad 0-4-2 record in the city in which we became champions.
It was a messy win, but a win is a win is a win IS A WIN. So stop complaining about it. Yes, the Stars were sloppy at time and yes, they almost surrendered a three-goal lead to the worst team in the league, but we came away with those all-important 2 points. I’m not saying that we should ignore the problems; I’m just saying that for now we should just be thankful for the win and work on fixing ourselves up for the next game.
Some points to note:
- Tyler Seguin made it back onto the scoresheet with a goal and an assist. After cooling off for a few games, this was good to see from him. I’m happier with that trade with every game. I can’t wait until we’re actually a complete team again.
- A goal is coming for Valeri Nichushkin. He came so close yet again last night and still couldn’t convert. He’s going to get there soon. Regardless, he’s impressed me a lot, and I’m fully convinced that the Stars made the right choice in keeping him in the NHL.
- I was pretty ok with Steve Ott scoring on us. In fact, it made me happier than it should have. Whatevs. I’ll always love Otter, sue me.
- Matt Moulson needs to, like, not. I’m thankful this guy is in the East because that’s 6 goals against the Stars in 2 games. Ouch.
Next up: the Habs on the second night of a back-to-back. I can’t see this ending well, but you never know.
