Our Lundy (right) was the victorious Lundy against the Rangers tonight.
The Stars are in New York for the week for their NYC roadtrip. Tonight we’re in MSG against the Rangers, Wednesday we play New Jersey, and Thursday we wrap up the trip against the Islanders. I really hope we get 4 points out of this roadtrip. The Stars desperately need to start playing better and get some points. I think they have a better chance of turning things around on the road where they don’t have the distractions of things in Dallas.
I think the best matchup tonight is our Lundy versus Goalie Lundy. Goalie Lundy has played really well for the past couple seasons, and our Lundy is finally coming into his own in the league. Hopefully we will get some Swede on Swede scoring action!
Otter will be in the lineup again tonight. Petersen was the odd man out Saturday afternoon against the Avs, and I don’t know who they’re planning on sitting out tonight. I hope it will be Avery, but I don’t think that’s going to happen. Maybe he can get lost in Manhattan looking for some great kitten heels.
I thought Lehtinen was close to coming back, but he didn’t make the trip so his groin injury must be more serious than the team is letting on.
My pick to score (I had it last game… stupid refs) is Loui Eriksson. He says he loves playing on the road and he’s played well so far this season, so hopefully he can get a goal tonight.
Update: Chelsea from Stop Hitting Robidas told me that Petersen left New York to go back to Dallas to be with his wife for the birth of their child. Congrats to the new little Petersen! It looks like no one will need to be scratched for Ott to be in the lineup tonight.
