Dallas Stars (23-17-1, 47 pts) @ LA Kings (21-15-7, 47 pts)

STAPLES Center, Los Angeles, California
The second half of the season starts with a big game big game big game. That's pretty much all you can say about this one. As of today, the Stars sit two points behind the Kings, who just happen to hold the eighth seed in the playoffs. After what happened on Tuesday against the Ducks, this feels like a must win game.
Dallas needs to come out determined and ready to play tonight. Any effort like what they showed against the Ducks and this thing will be over very soon. LA may not be a great, or even good, offensive team but they can certainly take advantage of bad play. The loss of Ribeiro has really hurt this team as more and more of the offensive burden is in Jamie Benn's hands.
Tom Wandell is a nice player but he's not a second-line guy and can't really fill the skates alongside Morrow and Eriksson. Those two guys need a playmaking ce...

Late yesterday afternoon...
All Star Jonathan Quick gave up 4 goals. They weren't his fault.
The refs suck
Sheldon Souray is an ass
Steve Ott is a bigger ass
Morrow steamrolled Kopitar - he didn't get up from the ice - was it a clean hit, or did Morrow come in high with his elbow - Kopitar sure did look concussed and not the stupid "bloody nose" nonsense they talked about following...
Dallas Stars 5 - Los Angeles Kings 4
Wow, what a firecracker of a game between these two last night. This one had a little bit of everything in it: Great saves, great goals, fights, vicious hits and an intense playoff atmosphere.

Chances are he won't like how they look if his team can't defeat the slumping Colorado Avalanche.
