So Brad Richards made his Dallas debut last night; and boy was it a good one. He not only set up all 3 of Hagman’s goals, but also had a career night with 5 assists and became the first Star since coming to Dallas to have 5 assists in one game. That’s quite a splash.
I guess I should also mention the Stars totally dominated the Blackhawks, winning 7-4. There were so many goals, and so many great plays that I can’t even talk about each one seperately, so here is the list of goals scored last night
04:08: Dustin Byfuglien (PPG) assisted by Jason Williams (Chicago)
04:57: Niklas Hagman assisted by Brad Richards and Trevor Daley (Dallas)
09:58: Mike Modano unassisted (Dallas)
02:47: Niklas Hagman assisted by Antti Miettinen and Brad Richards (Dallas)
04:41: Loui Eriksson assisted by Brenden Morrow and Mike Ribeiro (Dallas)
06:34: Trevor Daley assited by Brad Richards and Antti Miettinen (Dallas)
04:25: Rene Bourque (SHG) unassisted (Chicago)
05:55: Niklas Hagman (hat trick) assisted by Brad Richards and Philippe Boucher (Dallas)
09:20: Andrew Ladd assisted by Petri Kontiola and Jason Williams (Chicago)
16:49: Jere Lehtinen (PPG) assisted by Brad Richards and Mike Modano (Dallas)
18:15: Rene Bourque (SHG) assisted by Craig Adams (Chicago)
Lots of goals from a lot of people, which was good because Turco was not on his game for some of it. But it’s seemed since the beginning of the year, the team has balanced out. Like last night, Turco wasn’t totally on top of everything and 4 goals got past him but the offense blossomed to win with 3 goals.
Brad Richards is definitely going to be a keeper around here, especially with that Finn line.
Brenden Morrow got into quite a fight last night as well, beating the tar out of Adam Burish after Burish picked a fight with Brenden, which you obviously don’t do. Burish got showered with penalties; 5 minutes for fighting, 2 minutes for charging, 2 minutes for instigating and a 10 minute game misconduct. Ha is all I have to say!
The three stars of the game were:
