Stargazing, A Dallas Stars Puckcast – Episode 207: No Fooling
The regular-season Stars are sitting pretty – but what can they do to set up their best possible postseason run? Wes and Mark take a look.
It's a good time to be a Dallas Stars fan. Jason Robertson is officially the new Mike Modano. Jamie Benn and Joe Pavelski have renewed our faith in Veteran Savvy with record-breaking performances. And Miro Heiskanen is still Miro Heiskanen. All this, plus Jake Oettinger, and the 2023 postseason looks like a bright light at the end of the regular-season tunnel.
And while it's technically still possible for the Victory Green Gang to fall out of Stanley Cup contention, it looks like a good time to scout their potential Western Conference matchups. Wes and Mark are, as always, up to the challenge. In this episode, they discuss:
- why every first-round opponent will be challenging,
- why some will be more challenging than others (file under: just about any Central Division team),
- why the Stars should try to make a statement with every remaining regular-season game,
- and why the persistent specter of getting goalie'd fades during a playoffs series.
Is it true that if you say "Murder Death Kill Division" three times, Gabriel Landeskog will get a hat trick against you? Share your suspicions...with Stargazing. It’s brought to you by our sponsor, Greening Law, P.C.
