Stars of Big D:
Final - Overtime
Dallas Stars 2 – Chicago Blackhawks 3
Dallas was both unlucky and very fortunate to get at least a point in this game. Chicago dominated possession of the puck and put enormous pressure on Kari Lehtonen the entire game. The Stars couldn’t stay out of the penalty box and that, in the end, was the difference in the game as the Hawks scored three power play goals.
All of that was pretty much secondary though to the in game news that Jamie Benn had re-signed with the Stars for five years/$26.25 million.
Kari Lehtonen was once again the huge positive in this game. He faced 41 shots, many of them point blank, and was able to stop 38 of them. The first goal that he allowed was actually an own goal off of Trevor Daley. He may have allowed two true goals to the Blackhawks, but Kari should take no blame for this game.
Cody Eakin continues to impress during his time with the second line. He forced a key turnover in the second p...

As a result of some missed scoring chances when there was a chance to put the game away, followed by late penalty trouble and inability to kill the penalties, the Stars skated off with a 3-2 overtime loss and settled for one point...
After yesterday's revelation that they were using their empty seats as a humor device, the Dallas Stars have now turned in a direction I was not expecting. They are now inventing players for their press releases!

No, Tasha Pym, we have never seen a Sneep.
Shame on you, Dallas Stars. Shame. On. You.
