But Leclaire made 36 saves too, well worth a 3rd star in my eyes + it was his home ice.
I don't think Oz cares too much, he'll take that SO to the bank. Do players listen to game star awards?
No doubt they would. They even skate out to take a curtain call, generally moreso on home ice but Chelios took a long lap when he was named a star in one of the games in the '02 series against the Nucks. It was a chorus of boooos and Cheli was egging them on.
well if LeClaire had not played as well as he did it would have been a blowout after the second period. Like a 6/7-0 game easily. He made quite a few great saves. If the Wings were at home Ozzie would have been a star, thems are just the way the apples fall.
