poor decision by Ribiero to get into it with Burrows there. We need him on the ice as much as possible in these situations

**** >_< Dallas lets Vancouver right back into the game with horrible defensive play. Mark Fistric simply isn't getting the job done tonight, get him on the bench.

That was an important win for the Stars. good game for Mike Ribiero and Brenden Morrow, not so much for the defense - very sloppy in their own end.

Dallas is 14-14-1 when surrenduring the first goal... I guess that's good

Mark Fistric wasn't on the ice. I just checked the shift log, and it was Norstrom and Daley. Norstrom made the dumb play behind the net.

Fistric on the other hand I thought had an awesome game. It may have been his best. He was making smart plays and big hits.

With tonight's win, the Stars leapfrogged the Senators, and are now 2nd overall in the NHL.

With a handful of extra games played, of course, but they're still up there!

That game was like pulling teeth, but at least with exciting consequences.

I thought the Stars were flat as hell, and played parts of the game as if entitled. I so miss Zubov. Come back to us, Zubs.

..

And yes, that was not our regular commentator.

That decision on that last shift on OT was quite interesting. I'd never want to put two rookies together.
I sure thought it was going to be Norstrom-Niskanen, instead Grossman-Niskanen.

Norstrom reverts back to his typical self after having a outstanding game in Calgary.

To be fair to Norstrom, he pretty much just blew a tire more than made a defensive mental mistake. Daley made the real coverage error not picking up Naslund. Norstrom's falling down led to the goal, but there were opportunities for recovery and it wasn't technically a mental mistake.

Niskanen was far worse about the mental errors on this night. He only got burned on one when he covered exactly no one of two guys to cover on the PP goal for the Canucks and had several other just... sloppy mental mistakes - not getting pucks up the boards, bad turnovers and the like. He had his share of good plays, to be fair, but he was the guy who made the most mistakes on the night.

It seems like the rookie D men rotate who has a bad game. Grossman had it in Calgary, Fistric was shaky the last Vancouver game. This game it was Niskanen. I'd say he was the least solid of all six defensemen.

This game's vbookie thread = comedy.

I think part of the problem with the slow start was that they were attempting home run passes all over the place trying to ambush the inexperienced Vancouver D instead of just doing their normal thing and dominating possession. Once they gave that up the Canucks rarely had the puck... the 3rd period was all Luongo hanging them in there.

There was a collective "huh??" when Morrow stepped out there in the SO, but damned if it didn't work. He better be careful or he's going to add sniper to his job description.

When they first signed Morrow to his contract I was thinking yea hes tough as nails and your leader but who would have given him that much?? Now it looks like a steal. I didnt get to watch the whole game (I hate living in Austin area) but I saw Antti and Hagman make some slick moves with the puck both of them almost scored in the third and Antti's feed to Ribs was perfect...Too bad he didnt bury it though. (Guess he was returning the favor for Antti blowing his perfect pass in Calgary.)
