They played a pretty good game. Had a lot of shots. Didn’t give up many shots. Yet the opposition still scored five goals.
Five goals a game. That’s the theme of this whole season.
I just have two questions:
1. Why was Sutherby scratched in favor of Barch?
2. Why did Mike Modano only get 8 minutes when he was doing so well in the first?
My guess? Crawford doesn’t know what he’s doing.
There was no way that the Stars were suddenly going to win a bunch of games in a row so it’s really silly to even contemplate it. The surprise was right before the Olympics when they were only one point out of the 8th spot in the standings. That fact was not an indication of the situation. Then, coming off the Olympic break, they went back to not surprising us.
I’m not looking forward to the day Turco moves on, but I am kind of looking forward to it. I know that sounds wrong but that’s the way it is. The problem is that I don’t know what we have with Lehtonen, but I don’t see Turco straightening out.
I think we’ll be a mediocre team while Crawford is leading it. I’m gonna go watch the Coyotes.
Wait. One more thing. Jamie Benn had a great game. And so did the new kid, Brandon Segal. I’m sure Segal will be healthy scratched next game.
