Shots are really lopsided in the Stars' favor.

Sounds like this team is the polar opposite of Dallas, except the goaltenders.

Jack Campbell has fully bought into Valley's philosophy. He looks as confident as I've ever seen him, but he's as calm as ever. His movements are minimal, and when he hasn't been excellent (which has been rare lately), he's still in excellent position for rebound shots.

Marty Turco may be his favorite goalie (and he still comes out to handle the puck more the Dallas' other goalies), but he looks like Kari Lehtonen with his economy of movement on most shots.

Texas just scored on themselves on a delayed call while they had a 2 man advantage

OMG ... I don't think I've ever seen that.

Alex Chaisson just scored an on goal from the offensive zone. Campbell was off the ice, with an extra attacker on, because Hamilton was called for a penalty.

The game is tied.

If Valley can successfully coach the Turco out of him he deserves the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

... and Campbell stops another breakaway. Texas has dominated this entire game. They're a different team after that crazy own goal. They need to shake it off.

3rd huge save from Campbell. Hubert Labrie falls down skating out of his own zone, and it creates a partial breakaway.

Campbell deserves the win ... and Texas takes another penalty. They need to keep it clean, get through this, and get a damn goal.

Tie game late and Roussel takes a penalty. This is why he came down from Dallas. Irresponsible penalties. #txstars

Owen Newkirk wrote a great article about Alex Chaisson for AHL.com.

Quote:
Coach Desjardins did not immediately boost Chiasson’s ice time and throw him out on the power play, but the entire team was catching on to what this rookie was all about. Assistant Coach Doug Lidster lobbied with Desjardins, eventually convincing the Stars’ bench boss to give Chiasson a bigger role.

On Nov. 27 the Stars began a ten-day five-game road trip through Illinois and Michigan. Facing the Rockford IceHogs that night, Chiasson made his first big step forward as the coaching staff moved him up to a line with Cody Eakin and fellow rookie Reilly Smith. He scored a goal in the game, just his second of the season, and then followed it up with a two-point performance (1 goal, 1 assist) three nights later at Grand Rapids.

“We went through that road trip in November,” Chiasson recounted. “Where Willie gave me a chance to play with Eaks [Cody Eakin] and Reilly Smith. I did pretty well there and I gained a little bit of confidence. Plus it was a big road trip for the team, we won five of six.”

Seizing on the opportunity of playing more ice time and being on a top scoring line, Chiasson flourished. He played the next 19 games with Eakin and Smith and posted 12 points (5 goals, 7 assists. It was an awakening for a player who expected to produce from day one.
Thank you Doug Lister.

Quote:
“Right after the lockout, after the training camp in Dallas, I think that’s kind of where he stood out the most,” said Fortunus. “He was skating hard and he kind of gave himself another role on the team. Because he saw that he was one of the leading guys up front and he had to lead the way for some of the guys.”

“He took a real big step at the end of the lockout,” said Desjardins. “All of a sudden we were missing quite a few players out of our lineup. We were looking for someone to take charge. We didn’t just have NHL players gone, but we also had some injuries at the time too It wasn’t that we went out and asked him to [take a bigger role], he just naturally stepped up and started doing it.

“He’s a winger, but all of a sudden he was taking key face-offs. He really battled for the team; he really took charge of the situations. He wanted the responsibility and he wanted the opportunity to be a leader. He carried us for quite a while.”

If you want to watch the goal they described in the article .... Click here.

*Select the Free Highlights Tab
*There are three drop downs
*Make sure to select "Texas", "January", and "2013".
*Click on the highlights for 1/18
*It's the 3rd goal, and it's around 30 seconds in.

Quote:
Two nights later, the Stars earned revenge against Chicago as Chiasson produced the first virtuoso performance of his pro career. He scored twice in a four-goal first period that vaulted Texas to a 6-4 win over the Wolves. Chiasson grabbed the opening goal less than three minutes into the game and then scored perhaps the Stars’ best individual goal of the season seven minutes later. He received a long pass from rookie defenseman Jamie Oleksiak at the offensive blue line, toe-dragged around Chicago forward Andrew Gordon in the high slot and, in one fluid motion, fired a backhand shot below the glove of former Texas goalie Matt Climie and just inside the right post.

It may have just been the seminal moment of his rookie season.

“We had a tough night the night before and we needed something to get us going,” said Desjardins. “We needed somebody to step up and make things happen. It wasn’t just the goal; it was his approach to the game. He wanted to make something happen. He wasn’t just hoping we had a good game, he was going out after it.”

When asked about his highlight-reel goal he smiled almost sheepishly before admitting it was one of his best.

“It was pretty good. I’ve scored a few nice goals, but to do one like that in pro hockey […] that was something.”

Stars sign Bretton Cameron to PTO. Comes from Greenville Road Warriors.

Quote:
Cameron, 24, joins Texas for the second time this season. The Didsbury, Alberta native originally signed a PTO with the Stars on January 26th and made his Texas debut that night against the San Antonio Rampage at Cedar Park Center. Cameron played in one game during his first stint with the Stars and did not register a point.

They didn't list injuries where I saw the scratches so he could be injured.

He must be. Might also explain why Roussel got called back up.

Seems like every time I check the scores these days Texas has a huge shot advantage.

Also, apparently Cheechoo is on OKC now.
