That's what the Stars were saying today, and for good reason. With the rest of the team living on fumes thanks to another long road trip and long flight home, Mike Smith was more than up to the task. The kid look good, and now he has left his coach in the best quandary: Deciding today's netminder.
Tippett said on Friday he would split the two this weekend; he backtracked off that after this game, saying the Stars would re-evaluate that decision tomorrow morning. They always want to go with the hot goaltender, right? Of course, Marty was pretty good in San Jose on Thursday.
Anyway, the Stars will take this one today and have no excuse for no energy tomorrow afternoon. And they'll need every bit of it against a very hot Anaheim team.
See you in less than 24 hours.
