Pretty quick (and optional) practice this morning, for obvious reason. The Stars need to stay fresh and focused on the chance they have to sweep tonight. Let's face it: Nobody wants to get on that airplane again, deal with the two-hour time change again, or give the Sharks another chance.
Anyway, Zubov's fine again. Now with Stu Barnes, there may be a question mark. Barnes said he was fine when I talked to him post-game, and Tippett said they'd talk to him this morning to see how he's doing. There may be someone in for him if there's any doubt. I'm not sure he or Jonathan Cheechoo got the worst of their collision. Both looked dazed afterward.
It'd be great if the Stars finished this off tonight. Get some time, get some rest before the next round. Regardless, just finish it ASAP. Don't want to give a team like the Sharks any life.
