Forgive me, folks, I need a moment to catch my breath over this: I don't think I've written "Stars take a 3-0 lead" yet this season. Little light-headed.
Ott's behind the back pass is for Fabian Brunnstrom, who just dances in and around to the open end of the net to give the Stars a 3-0 lead at the 10:45 mark. In the first period. Wow. Stephane Robidas gets the second assist. That's three goals on eight shots. The crowd gave Toskala a sarcastic cheer when he made a stop a few moments ago. Ouch.
