That gives us 15 days to look at options for the Stars to consider as they head down the road of trying to get from where they are to where they wish to go.

Joey MacDonald’s slick glove save on Brendan Morrow

Dallas Stars forward Brendan Morrow had a wide open net when he got the pass from Erik Cole out front.  Calgary Flames goalie Joey MacDonald did the excellent job of going post-to-post and getting his glove out to make the save.  Lucky for Morrow the Stars went on to win 4-3 and so the sheer robbery by MacDonald didn’t come into play.
