I guess I just wanted to use as many hyphens in a title as I could. Anyway, just talked with coach Dave Tippett and Brenden Morrow about the non-suspension. Neither of them were stunned at the outcome.
Said Tippett, "I would've been surprised if they did anything. That's the spirit of that rule. It's nice to see (the NHL) thought the same."
Said Morrow, "I've been surprised in the past, so anything could be expected, but it was the outcome I was hoping for."
So all that being said, the Stars look forward to another matchup with the Kings. Think there'll be some fun out there tomorrow?!
Other tidbits: Marty Turco will get the nod tomorrow night. With the way the schedule sets up here over the next few weeks, he'll likely get a lot of the starts. He's looking much better, more Marty-like in the goals-against (2 per game the past three, as opposed to those crazy numbers we saw through the first bunch o' games). Tippett is happy with Marty's turnaround: "He's just solid in there, making the saves he should be making. His performances have been very good."
See you all tomorrow morning.
