The Stars play their second game of their 3 game roadtrip tonight against the New Jersey Devils. We’re coming off a great win against the Rangers Monday night. For the first time this season, I felt like the Stars were actually playing the game they hope to bring to the ice every night. Hopefully they can keep that going again tonight.
I’m sure Marty will get the start in goal tonight. After letting in the first shot Monday night (how many times does that happen?), he was really solid in net. Modano had a great game Monday – it is so nice to see him skating at jersey-flapping levels with Neal and Crombeen.
Heika says that Petersen is back with the team today, but that he will most likely not play. His wife gave birth to their second son, Elliot Jasper, yesterday. That is so MUCH better than Finley Vincent… Scratch Avery please?
Everyone is talking about Sean Avery’s return to the east coast, and I really don’t want this blog to turn into the Sean Avery Circus as almost every Stars site has turned into. If anything, he needs to come up with better insults than calling a goalie “Fatso” or Laraque a “donkey”. The 10 year olds at the camp I worked at came up with better insults than that.
My pick to score tonight is Loui Eriksson. That little Swede said that he really likes road games, so I’m hoping he’ll get a goal in this one.
