There's no doubt this is an exhausted team, no matter what they say. A lot of games in a very short amount of time, with a flight to a coast in the midst of it. Going 2 of 8 on the power play is pretty good, but the Stars wanted to generate more shots on all those opportunities.
Some interesting passes in front of Turco, eh? There were a few times where we were just waiting for that really big gaffe. Like I said, I guess this is one of those games where you wipe your brow and be happy you got a point. And that point puts them back into first place, so how odd is that? Some other musings:
Niskanen has five goals this season. The kid's been pretty good, hasn't he?
Great game for Loui Eriksson; he's definitely getting better and he was a determined fellow those first few minutes. Think he was feeling buzzed after that wraparound goal?
Good news on Zubov: no broken bones in that foot, and Tip is expecting him to be ready for Tuesday's game in Anaheim.
