Since the Stars defeated the Rangers 10-2, Dallas has only reached the 30 shot mark twice (notching 22, 33, 30, 18, 22, 25 shots in those 6 games). While only doing that, they've also given up a ridiculous amount of shots. 3 times has the opponent reached 30 or more shots...with Columbus getting 43 against the Stars.
This obviously follows a domination by Dallas in the shot department prior to this. Edmonton's 23 shots were the least amount since that game (other's included 26, 29, 33, 36, 43 in addition to Edmonton's 23 last night).
Dave Tippett on Sawada getting a chance because Conner's wife was having a baby:
``It's amazing how that goes,'' Tippett said. ``Sometimes you get the opportunity and if you grasp it and run with it, you never know what can happen. There's a lot of players in this league that have waited for their chance, and when they got it, they've solidified their spot, and away they went.''
Anyone shocked that Tippett likes the kid. Maybe Sawada is the player that'll put Barch in the pressbox (when Wilson is healthy).
