Okay, let’s face it. The Stars didn’t play their absolute best today. Shots on goal were 30-14 Columbus. But you know what, I really don’t care all too much, because at the end of the game, who had more goals? That’s right, Dallas.
Captain Brenden Morrow scored the first goal of the game, just under 13 minutes in. Stu Barnes and Steve Ott also scored, while Nikolai Zherdev scored for the Blue Jackets.
There was a scrum around the net in the third period that I’ll have to rewatch later, but I remember Happy Meals pushing some Blue Jacket’s head down. Happy Meals, by the way, led the team in ice time, 23:33, followed by Robi (22:17). Both of them played great. Also in great d-men, Trevor Daley, who made a SPECTACULAR save – I guess Smith thought he had the puck, but it snuck underneath him, and Daley quickly skated up and flung it out of the crease before a Blue Jacket could get to it. Thanks, Trevor!
