Video Highlights: Senators @ Stars: 3/20/2010

Editors Note: TracyJean has been YouTubing and analyzing highlights of recent Stars games in the FanPosts. I don't know about you all, but I much enjoy the Ralph and Razor versions to what is sometimes on the NHL site. Thanks to Tracy for doing this. -BG

As Marc Crawford put it during his postgame press conference, this probably wasn't the Stars best effort on this homestand (they still seemed to be half asleep until the second period), but it was good enough for a 5-4 win (helped by some poor goaltending by Pascal Leclaire).  11 different Stars played a part in the five goals that the Stars scored.

On the business end of one of those passes that's just perfect...

The Senators were up 1-0 when the Stars went on their first power play of the game, which turned into a 5-on-3 after 1:07. Just one second after the first penalty expired, Brad Richards scored off a pass from Stephane Robidas for his 20th goal of the year, giving Richards seven 20-goal seasons and the current NHL lead in power play points.

Highlights after the jump...

Ribeiro snuck in, Barch found him...

With the game tied 1-1 late in the first, Krys Barch picked up the puck behind the Senators net, unmolested by the Senators' defense. He passed to Mike Ribeiro in front of the crease, who put it in the net to put the Stars up 2-1.

They stayed hungry on that one...

After making a save on Loui Eriksson, Senators' goalie Pascal Leclaire had not yet regained his feet when Eriksson made a pass to Brad Richards, which Richards then shot into the wide open net to tie the game at 3-3.

A freebie for his 18th...

Once again, a Senators' misplay led to a Stars goal. Accepting a pass from Brandon Segal, James Neal headed for the net, with Pascal Leclaire expecting him to shoot. Instead, Neal backhanded the puck to Jamie Benn, who shot it into the open net for his 18th goal of the season.

You can hear the engine as he meandered his way into the passing zone...

Trevor Daley gets knocked a lot by Stars' fans for the pucks which go into the Stars' net off him. This time, Daley put the puck into the opposition's net during the 3rd period. He picked up the puck on a Senators' turnover in the neutral zone and skated it into the offensive zone, shooting it into the net from 31 ft. Not only would the goal chase Pascal Leclaire (who was very pissed off, as seen at the end of the video) from the game, it would prove to be the game winner.
