Dallas Stars Daily Links: Greasy Wins are Still Wins

The third period comeback magic has returned. Plus, no more Hanzal, highlights, and more.

The battle of the #17’s

Happy Saturday, folks! I’m going to keep it short and sweet for your Saturday pleasure:

The Stars couldn’t get much going through the first two periods last night, but they turned it on in the third again. The power play was 2-2, which was mildly surprising, given the state of the Stars’ powerplay and the Anaheim Ducks’ penalty kill as of late. Kari Lehtonen was extremely solid yet again, and the boys in victory green pulled off another late comeback. Onward and upward it seems.

Ryan Getzlaf scored the only goal of the first period, sniping a late one blocker-side high on Kari Lehtonen:

The second period went scoreless. Then Devin Shore tied things up in the third after what should have been drawing a penalty to put the Stars on the job:

A few minutes later, Jamie Benn tipped in John Klinberg’s shot in what proved to be the game-winning goal. Quite the deft deflection:

Dallas didn’t look great for the whole game, but in fairness they were dealing with some injuries and lineup shuffling. It’s crunch time now, so here’s to the next two weeks on the road.

Stars Stuff

I’m sure by now you’ve all heard the Martin Hanzal news. Here’s a little bit more info:

By the time you all read this, the results will have been made clear, so I hope I’m not horribly wrong, but I actually like Hitch’s thinking on this one. Benn’s game and energy has seemed like it could use a spark lately, and these guys can definitely provide it:


I don’t think anyone around these parts will be complaining about Radek Faksa getting more play:

Glad to see Rich Peverley making an impact off the ice. I remember how absolutely terrifying that night was four years ago:

These next two weeks on the road are very important:

Throwback Saturday to these dashing gents:

League Things

I know Henrik Lundvquist is awesome, but I have to think that there is some major East Coast bias coming from a couple of these writers:

Here’s Greg Wyshynski’s NHL Weekly Reader:

Down Goes Brown’s weekly grab bag explains that the developments in Seattle are probably bad news for Quebec’s hopes of a new team:

The Hockey News’ Jared Clinton thinks that John Tavares may not be long for New York (at least as an Islander):

I agree that there is no way any of these will ever be broken:
