Well, the game against Vancouver turned out better than I expected. The Stars came back from a 2-0 deficit to win the game behind the heroics of James Neal in the shootout.
Loui Eriksson and Mike Modano also scored in the shootout, while Neal assisted on Modano’s goal in the first period, and Mike Ribeiro scored during the second period to tie the game and eventually send it into OT.
I didn’t get to see much of the game, but apparently the Stars are definitely back in top shape these days because it’s been a rare occurence to see the Stars win the second game of back-to-back games.
For now, the Stars have a quick break, and we’ll see if they can keep up their momentum in the next game.
