You wonder what has changed since these two teams last met? Well a lot. Back on January 10th, Dallas was in 13th place in the West. Phoenix was in 7th. A month later, Dallas sits in 5th place tied with Anaheim. Phoenix sits where Dallas was once...13th place.
Since these 2 teams last met, Dallas has pulled off 9 victories. Phoenix has only 4. Dallas on the other hand has lost a total of 2 times in regulation (2 other in OT). Phoenix has gone 8 different times without capturing a point.
And a lot of it has to do with goal scoring. Dallas has potted 49 goals in 13 games while only giving up 27. Phoenix on the other hand, has only managed 30 goals in 12 games with 44 goals given up. It really is insane. 13 games ago, Dallas was a -24 in the goal differential department. They now stand as only a -2 (granted a lot of that has to do with the New York and Columbus games with 17 goals in just those 2 games). Phoenix was a -13 at the time we last played. They're now -25.
On the special teams depart, only Dallas has shown a big difference. The powerplay has jumped up from 14.6% to 17.4% for the Stars....that's a 2.8 increase in just 13 games. Only thing special teams wise for the Yotes that has changed is the PK...going from 80.0% to 78.8%.
The main thing....Dallas has gained 20 points since the last time these two teams met. Phoenix has gained 8.
just looking at the most posts in any Stars thread, I thought we had a playoff GDT that had like 440 last year. I guess I was wrong the most was Richards debut. Then I saw the elimination game, that was from like when I first got here. I know Sydor would defiantly be booted first.
btw, if you want 400+, vs. the Coyotes is probably the worst choice. I don't think any team evokes more apathy from Dallas fans.
Wasn't too serious about the +400 thread...at least not for this game. Phoenix has been one of our lowest turnouts for game threads ever since I started doing them here.....don't expect it to change this time around either.
Wishful thinking, I guess.
Lets hope we can continue Phoenix's losing streak. They sure have changed their tone on the PHX board. Fire Gretzky seems to be the popular opinion (where have I heard fire a coach before).
