Found November 12, 2011 on Stars of Big D:
Final Dallas Stars 1 - Pittsburgh Penguins 3 Coming into this game, I was worried about two things for Dallas. I was worried about Pittsburgh's suffocating defense and how good they were on the power-play. The Penguins used their defense and special teams to beat the Stars 3-1 last night. Dallas could never really get going in this game and it was apparent from puck drop to final whistle. Even though the Stars scored in the first period and took a 1-0 lead well into the second, it just never looked comfortable for Dallas. The Stars weren't winning the puck battles that they did during the Capitals game and were constantly turning over the puck in their own zone. The passing for Dallas wasn't crisp because of the pressure that the Pens put on them. First passes out of the zone were getting picked off  and if it weren't for Kari Lehtonen, the Pens would have scored a few more goals. It seemed like possession of the puck was always in the Pens favor. Despite all ...

Dallas Stars Embarrass the Washington Capitals

Last Tuesday evening, the Dallas Stars were not only the better team; they were the only team on the ice that was playing hockey at a high level.  There a number of words that come to mind when trying to describe the Capitals’ performance: lackluster, sloppy, and half-hearted effort will do for a start. In what has become all too typical for the Caps, they didn’t play a full...
