Dallas Stars Daily Links: Saturday Funday

New, comments

The Stars gave the Sabres the business during yesterday’s matinee. Plus, Central teams don’t lose I guess.

Great performance by the Stars today, as they completely dismantled the Sabres with a 7-1 victory, upping the points earned on the East Coast swing to 5 out of 6. Highlights below:

Remi Elie found a nice present in front of the net (a loose puck and goalie facing the wrong way) and whacked in the bouncer to give the Stars a 1-0 lead early in the first:

Mattias Janmark’s seeing eye shot gave the Stars a 2-0 lead heading into the second period:

Janmark wasn’t done scoring yet, and put the Stars up 3-0 on a nice, but probably savable shot over Robin Lehner’s left shoulder:

Sam Reinhart cut the lead by a third later in the second, but Jamie Benn put on his Captain pants and restored the Stars three goal lead:

Esa Lindell decided he was jealous of John Klingberg getting all the defenseman points, so he wristed one home to continue the second period barrage:

I’d like to pretend that the Stars designed this play in practice and gave Stephen Johns a faulty stick on purpose so that his slapped would end up being a perfectly tippable pass to Radek Faksa:

And thus ended the second period.

Tyler Pitlick put the cherry on top in the third to end the scoring at 7 for the Stars:
