Found April 25, 2013 on Goon's World:
I found this little news tidbit on Michael Russo’s blog, obviously, we don’t see every hit or very news story, but it appears that Dustin Brown came very close to being suspended by the National Hockey Leagues Department of Player Safety earlier in the week for this questionable hit on Dallas Stars forward Antoine Roussel. via Russo’s Rants -- Brown, who amazingly has never been suspended, does this time and time again and somehow gets away with it. In my opinion, he should have gotten suspended for what I thought was a very dirty elbow on Dallas’ Antoine Roussel two nights ago.

Admirals lose Game 1 in OT

Brett Ritchie scored the overtime game winner 11:44 in to give the Texas Stars a 3-2 win and, more importantly, 1-0 lead in this best-of-five series. “An unfortunate bounce with a rolling puck,” said Austin Watson. "That’s hockey and that’s overtime.” The momentum swung the Stars’ direction after defenseman Scott Ford went to the penalty box four minutes before...

Bill Meltzer: Stars Gameday: 4/25/13 vs. Blue Jackets

PREVIEW 7:00 AM CDT No longer in control of their own increasingly remote playoff hopes, all the Dallas Stars (22-20-4) can do at this point is try to take care of business in their two remaining games at the American Airlines Center. It would take a minor miracle for the Stars to get into the Western Conference playoffs at this point. Tonight, the 10th-place Stars host the...

Dallas Stars Out Again

Bill Meltzer: Star Gazing: Agonized Collapse Does Grave Damage to Playoff Hopes

The Dallas Stars entered last night's game in San Jose still in full control of their own playoff destiny. For 54-plus minutes, the team was in good shape to leave the building one step closer to their goal. Instead, the Stars slunk away with their third straight loss (0-2-1) and knowing full well that even if they beat both the Columbus Blue Jackets and Detroit Red Wings in...

Dustin Brown at the center of two controversial hits

Dustin Brown's reputation in the NHL is starting to get pretty ugly. If you're unfamiliar with Brown as a player, he plays the game with an intensity and a ferocity that's difficult to match. This style appears to get the better of him, causing him to throw controversial hits on a somewhat regular basis. In a span of just three days, Brown placed himself at the center...

In A Perfect World…

Uh oh. Leipold was pacing. When he spotted me looking at him, he just looked at me and shook his head in disgust. Leipold has one of the highest payrolls in the NHL. He just spent $196 million on long-term contracts on two players. How will he respond if the Wild misses? That's Michael Russo, lead digger for the Minnesota Wild. And that is poetry. Oh, I know. The...
