Well this will be a good test. The Stars have been just about the worst team in the league at 2nd night games for quite a few years now, if they can pick up some points in these games it will go a long way.

Top post updated as much as possible for now.

Hopefully game notes won't be up too late.

Would be awesome if they could get anything out of this. Looked like Minnesota started off strong tonight against the Avs.

Heika seems to think Christopher Nihlstorp will get the start. It makes sense to give him the start to, with how the schedule is.

^^^ no reason to put Lehtonen in again. Nihlstorp is a solid and reliable goaltender, and Kari's got to be feeling it after the workout the Coyotes gave him tonight.

One thing I noticed looking at the boxscore from the Wild game is that they used their top players much more heavily than the Stars did. I don't know if fatigue will come into play this early but Ryan Suter played 27 minutes and their big name guys up front (Heatley, Parise, Koivu) were all at 23 minutes. Contrast that with the Stars - our first line played 16-17 minutes and no defenceman played less than 16 - and Larsen would have had more ice time if not for that double minor he served.

Overall I really liked how the Stars used their lines in this one, and I think if they can get their 3rd and 4th lines out there against Minnesota's they'll eat them alive. It'll be up to the 1st and 2nd lines to hold that powerful Minnesota top 6 forward group.

Also stay out of the damn box. Minnesota probably doesn't win that game against Colorado without their PP coming through big.

I would like to see what Eakin can do on the second line instead of Wandell, at least for a few shifts.

Hopefully game notes won't be up too late.

Would be awesome if they could get anything out of this. Looked like Minnesota started off strong tonight against the Avs.
Nope, first period was atrocious. Second period was all PP, just took advantage of dumb penalties. Third was ok. Hoping they gel against the Stars and thank god its not in Dallas

One thing I noticed looking at the boxscore from the Wild game is that they used their top players much more heavily than the Stars did. I don't know if fatigue will come into play this early but Ryan Suter played 27 minutes and their big name guys up front (Heatley, Parise, Koivu) were all at 23 minutes. Contrast that with the Stars - our first line played 16-17 minutes and no defenceman played less than 16 - and Larsen would have had more ice time if not for that double minor he served.

Overall I really liked how the Stars used their lines in this one, and I think if they can get their 3rd and 4th lines out there against Minnesota's they'll eat them alive. It'll be up to the 1st and 2nd lines to hold that powerful Minnesota top 6 forward group.

Also stay out of the damn box. Minnesota probably doesn't win that game against Colorado without their PP coming through big.
We're definitely more spread out, and I wouldn't be surprised to see Sceviour and Rome jump in this game. Idk who you scratch on the forward end, honestly Wandell was the most invisible to me last night. Jordie would be the obvious swap on D.

I wo uldn't be upset if Lehtonen plays both, but he should probably rest up and use the time to practice and get ready for Tuesday.

yeah our win was not without blemishes either.

It's interesting that Jordie Benn actually played a ton of PK time. 3rd most on the team outside of Robidas and Goligoski. I didn't even really notice him being out there so he must have done alright lol.

Also apparently Reilly Smith lost a tooth near the end of the game and had to leave. I wonder if you give him the night off and let Sceviour in?

Is that what happened?

I saw him rush off to the room but couldn't really tell what the problem was. He was walking fine so obviously didn't think it was a leg injury or anything. But he flew off that ice, definitely didn't look like an equipment problem. Would explain it for sure.

Just spent two hours at the dentist.... but I did save a bunch of money on my car insurance by switching to Geico.

I would just like to say that Pliny is an awesome beer that I very much enjoy. Excellent taste, sir.

Wandell was pretty bad as 2nd line center, Ryder didn't much help either. Looks like Whitney is going to have to produce on the power play because he's going to have a hard time getting it done at even strength with Wandell as his center.

Based on those few twitter posts by Reilly Smith, I wouldn't be surprised if he missed tonight's game. He only mentioned getting done with the dentist 8 hours ago, and by 1 AM the team plane had probably already left.

Yeah, he took a puck to the face on the last shift the 4th line took in the third period. He went down for a second, realized the Coyotes still had the puck, then finished his shift.

I didnt feel like Wandell looked bad at all.

If anything Ryder was the drag on that line.

I don't think it's realistic to take 3 people who have never played together and expect them to have instant chemistry either.
