Dallas Stars Daily Links: Holy Cow, A Victory in Colorado

Now that was a heck of a performance. Plus, Carey Price remains good, BizNasty, and the Fort Worth Fire Brawl.

It does seem like they’re doing the trick, as the Stars continued their post-Jere Lehtinen night rampage with a 7-2 shellacking of the Avalanche last night. Notably, the victory was in Colorado, where I don’t think the Stars have won since around 2001 (I didn’t fact check that). Here are some highlights:

Tyler Seguin did all of the work himself to open the scoring:

Not the best celly I’ve ever seen:

Seguin scored again to put the Stars up 2-0, and got a little more help this time. I don’t think you can go secondary assist, primary assist, goal in less of a time frame than this:

Miko Rantanen cut it to 2-1 early in the second period, but Jason Spezza responded with a nice little poke to restore the two goal lead:

Shortly thereafter, Greg Pateryn absolutely cranked one from the deep to put the Stars up 4-1:

The Avs’/Lanche’s Blake Comeau wanted to prove the old “a three goal lead is the most dangerous lead in hockey” axiom true, so he scored to make it 4-2 at the end of two. Brett Ritchie scoffs at that notion, however, and ripped the puck into a wide open net after Curtis McKenzie’s forechecking led to a turnover:

They then had a touching moment on the bench:

I don’t think Devin Shore got quite the lift he was looking for on this, but it all worked out in the end as he put in an empty netter:

Ritchie didn’t want Seguin to be the only guy with two goals, so he finished off the Avs in front of the 12 people left in the arena to make it a 7-2 victory. The Stars have now scored 6 or more in three of the last eight games. I like that. I really like that.

120 penalty minutes before the game even started? Not too shabby:

It turns out that having a really good goalie can make a major impact on a team:
