Wow. Playoff style hockey no doubt. Razor said it best, "There's some issues with these Stars right now...however Turco brings it home for the Stars in a win or a loss and tonight he did it with a big W."
2 HUGE points. And the longest home stand of the season comes up.
First, 2 days to rest up.
Second, See how long Richards is out.
Third, Keep resting.
the officials, the commentating, and the effort from the Dallas Stars were all sub-par this game, but they fight through the adversity of losing their most skilled player (left in the lineup anyway) and take home a huge 2 points and control of 5th place in the west.
It's not going to get any easier either.. Edmonton will be in town next, and they're just as desperate as we are.
Don't think I'll ever get used to the idea of playoff positioning being decided by shootouts, but I'll take it. Gutty performance to even out play in the 3rd after losing Richards, I could go the rest of my life without hearing the Jackets broadcast again, and that number 18 kid ain't bad.
Yeah, that was the first Columbus game in a long time that I felt Nash was under control to some degree. And then he doesn't beat us in the shootout either. Probably still looking over his shoulder for Fistric.
OT to anyone still watching KDFI: Aren't you glad that this figure skating competition is in HD though???
