You know why I did that? Because I'm running out of things to say when the Stars play a game like what we just saw tonight. I don't get it. Yes, I know this isn't last year's team; there's a lot of different personnel. But to go from one extreme to the other in your performances? That's what has me puzzled.
OK, first a quick look to tomorrow night: Marty Turco will start. We all kind of saw that coming with Tobias Stephan starting against Chicago, but there it is confirmed.
Now, back to other things. Don't know what Brad Richards' status is for the Boston game. Don't even really know what his injury is, thanks to the new don't-have-to-tell-you-anything policy in the NHL. His absence wasn't even close to the problem tonight, but the Stars don't have bodies to spare in the forward department.
There was mention of the ice conditions not being great.. apparently that was just for one team. The odd-man rushes? Don't even know how to explain them, or at least that many of them. It's one thing for a goaltender to face almost 30 shots, but the type of shots he was facing? Ridiculous.
OK, I'm done for now. The Stars had better play their butts off in Boston, or this is going to be one long, long five-day break before their West Coast trip.
