The Stars go from having some jump and great scoring opportunities to mishandling the puck, struggling to get over the blue line on power plays and getting a bit frustrated. I always put up my disclaimer here, that it's only preseason. Nevertheless, they're just not looking very sharp right now.
James Neal isn't having near the night he did on Thursday. Brad Richards, meanwhile, looks great. There's been a lot of slipping and sliding on the ice tonight, too, especially behind the net. I know they had the public skate here today as part of the Open House, so I'm wondering if that's part of the ice issues.
And I'm still a B.J. Crombeen fan.
