Atta Boy Turco

I don’t think anyone in the NHL deserved that win more than Marty Turco. He finally beat Detroit at the Joe for the first time in his NHL career. The win also keeps the Stars in this series, with it now being 3-2.

The Stars came out hard, playing more desperation hockey, though they were unable to convert on their first power play of the game. Trevor Daley scored the first goal with assists from Brad Richards and Niklas Hagman. Then Daley took a penalty and with only 4 seconds left on their power play, the Wings Jiri Hudler scored to tie the game.

There were 3 penalties in the 2nd period, that either team were able to convert on. Joel Lundqvist gave the Stars their 2nd lead of the game 6 minutes in the second, with Marty Turco getting the assist. How fitting.

Tomas Holmstrom got the one and only penalty of the 3rd and it was quite possibly the dumbest penalty ever. Who ever thought it was a good idea to punch a player on the opposing bench while skating to your own? Detroit were able to kill that penalty, but the final was 2-1 Stars

This was a game no one can blame on phantom calls, the Stars earned this one fair and square, they were the better team. And man is it great to say that. They play again tomorrow here in Dallas.

and i promise to get the playoff stats updated soon
