Found November 07, 2013 on Nightmare on Helm Street:

More after the jump:  I’ll just get this out of the way now: I don’t fault Howard on the goals he let in, but he’s not a $5 million goalie right now. He just isn’t. Dallas capitalized on the few chances they had. Not good enough.

NOHS Three Stars of the Game: First Star: Zetterberg. Three assists tonight, all of them primary. Second Star: Datsyuk with a great goal. Third Star: Almquist with his first NHL goal. Things to Keep Doing: Scoring goals is good. Things to Stop Doing Forever: Giving up leads and getting scored on late in the second, third and OT periods is ba...
