If Dallas wins Thursday it will be a huge victory. Pretty much everything is against them.

Dallas will not see a lackadaisical Detroit team again. The Red Wings were embarrassed the last game because of poor effort and allowing the most shots by a wings team in 2 decades. Detroit will be looking to crush the Stars. Add to that the fact that Turco still has not won a regular season game in the Joe. This could be the hardest game of the season yet.

I say if the team has the "Crown Royal Bags" to win, they'll make the playoffs. On the other hand, I'm not saying they miss the playoffs if the lose. I just believe that if a team can win this kind of game, they should easily make the playoffs with the position the Stars are in.

I don't have the dedication of Caseman so castration is out of the picture, but I'll whack myself with a bat in the babymaker if the Stars win in Detroit but don't make the playoffs.

If Dallas plays like they did last night they can keep it close against Detroit, I would say the best chance to win rests with the PP having a really good night.. all I'll be looking for is a good effort from the Stars. It sucks that we'll probably lose ground after that game, but atleast then we're done with Detroit for the season.

**also: too bad Brunnstrom couldn't be back for that game - we'd be operating at full swede power then

The goals he let in were of the Turco variety...The defense wasn't good as well.

Semi-irrelevant, but Lehtonen's save on Ribs made #4 on Sportscenter's top plays.

Despite the improvement on dallas' play im really not looking forward to the red wings game for the following reasons..

1) they are coming of a loss---> highly motivated...
2) Datsyuk and Lidstrom will be in "send a message to the NHL" mode----> highly scary
3) Zetterberg has no contract pressure any more----> high tension released (i think it was playing on his mind)
4) they allowed a hat trick yesterday ----More motivation...

I have a bad feeling they will take all this out on Dallas...especially Datsyuk..and we have no answer for Pavel...

I hope im wrong, but i thin the wings will be breathing fire...we need every bounce to go our way or we could be in trouble

(and im not usually that pessimistic..)

i know that ott-ribs-lehtinen will be together, but we really need a checking line against Detroit top line and they have to hold if we are to have any hope...I was thinking somethin like

Lundqvist-Sutherby-Peterson

VS

Holmstrom-Datsyuk-Hossa

then let our other guys get some pts...

Lundy and Toby were 2 of 3 guys (eriksson) who had good success against the Datsyuk line in last years WCF's...maybe its worth trying them again...

Usually players stop performing as well before a contract extension comes.

Either way, Zetterberg is out tomorrow so don't have to worry bout him.

Well I don't think the Stars are planning on using Petersen as the checking line center. If they are, Barch will have to be replaced.
Lundqvist-Petersen-Barch
