Stars extend winning streak to 2

Stars had a good start to their 4-game home stand by undressing the Blue Jackets 3-1.

Smith got the start in net, and played a fantastic game, making some amazing key saves in the third. Brenden Morrow started the scoring with a sick pass from Antti Miettinen from behind the net. Ribeiro also got the assist. Stu Barnes (from Krys Barch) got the Stars a 2 goal lead 10 minutes into the 2nd. Blues countered with just 20 seconds left in the period with a power play goal from Nikolai Zherdev, Jason Chimera and Michael Peca got the assists. Steve Ott sealed the win in the 3rd with a goal from Jeff Halpern and Nicklas Grossman.

The Stars played a solid came. Rookie B.J. Crombeen (who made his NHL debut today) got on the scoresheet in the 3rd after fighting with Jared Boll with Steve Ott egging him on from the bench.

The three stars of the night were

  1. Mike Smith – stopping 29 of 30 shots
  2. Nikolai Zherdev – 1 goal
  3. Stu Barnes – 1 goal
