Dallas Stars Daily Links: Stars Win Knuckle-Filled Laugher 6-1

New, comments

The Stars and Panthers reignite their classic rivalry. Plus, a Nichushkin mystery, Seattle team name candidates, and more.

This game was very crazy and would be very difficult to type anything about, so I’ll just use images instead:

Here is a recap. [NHL]

This is a pretty good visual encapsulation of the first period:

And some words to go along with it:

Antoine Roussel’s reputation drew the Panther’s ire on this play, in which he didn’t actually do anything, which begat all of the fisticuffs:

Keith Yandle immediately regretted his decision to try for some retribution:

Devin Shore did the only actual scoring in the first, tipping in a John Klingberg wrister to put the Stars up 1-0:

Things calmed down relative to the first period in the middle frame, and Jamie Benn put the Stars up 2-0 off a sweet feed from Alex Radulov:

Radulov then took things into his own hands to give the Stars a 3-0 lead:

To round out the scoring in the second, Aaron Ekblad knocked one in for the Panthers with 3 seconds remaining on a power play:

John Klingberg had a beautiful assist on Mattias Janmark’s 13th of the season to restore the three goal lead and put the Stars up 4-1. This was a very nice goal:

Radulov’s son was in attendance and so in order to prove how cool of a dad he is he decided to score again on a breakaway:

Tyler Pitlick wanted in on the action so he took the feed on a very nice play by Roussel to finish the scoring at 6-1:

There were also quite a few scuffles.

Here are Razor and Luds with the wrap up:

Valeri Nichushkin’s Olympic ban is just as baffling to Jim Nill as it is to the rest of us, but at least it doesn’t have anything to do with doping:

I’ll count this as Stars news due to the presence of the one and only Jere Lehtinen:

Scott Burnside’s Counterattack yesterday was with Florida’s Aleksander Barkov:

Keep doing work!:

I’ll just leave this here:

Never look back:

Around the League

I can’t really decide which of these I like, if any. Cougars and Eagles are overused in sports already in my opinion:

Here are some issues the (potential) Kraken may face:

The Maple Leafs have regressed to mediocrity after a solid start:

I’ve seen way too many articles like this about Central Division teams this season. At least the Avs lost last night:

Potential good news for the Blackhawks:

Now that Alexander Radulov isn’t in Montreal anymore, they’ve forgotten how to properly celebrate:
