A couple of nights to sit and stew on that horrid loss the other night probably did wonders for Dallas coming into this matchup. They had been playing pretty well defensively before giving up 51 SOG the other night, so I’m hoping and thinking this was a one-off, as it took an empty net goal and a barrage of penalties to down them despite the shots advantage.
-Driedger was left virtually untouched in that game and wasn’t challenged at all. I think the Stars put a lot more on net in this one even though they might have to come back from an early deficit again. Take Dallas ML here. Lot's of value on this release!
