Oh was it good to hear that song again. I attended my first game this season Saturday against the Blues. I wore my Conner jersey, thinking I would get it in now, just in case they send him away after pre-season, only to find Midget was not playing. Boo. Brunnstrom wasn’t playing either, I was hoping to get to see him in action. The good news? Princess Avery was also no where to be seen. *small cheer*
Anyway, THE STARS WONNNNNN. Yes yes, 4-3!! (Notice the only pre-season game they’ve won is one I attended? Just sayin Stars, I would not be against preferential treatment if it guarantees a Stars win.) The Blues were up by 1 after the first, when Crombeen got a sweet shot and made it 1-1 in the second, with Barch and Grossman getting the assists. The third period had crazy scoring; the Blues made it 2-1. Then later, in less than 5 minutes the Stars managed 3 goals! First Otter from Fistric and the rookie Stafford. Then, James Neal was all alone in the offensive zone, help was on the way, but he just went behind the net then BOOM, in the puck goes! That is a good kid that Neal, I hope he earns a spot on the team. Brenden Morrow then got the last goal, the game winner, from Robidas and Grossman. The Blues came back to make the score 4-3, but the damage had been done. Stars win, and Morrow was the first star, followed by Neal.
One shocking stat from Saturday’s game was that Brad Richards led with 7 shots on goal. I am absolutely astounded, because he seemed reluctant to shoot the puck at all. He’d hold onto it and give everyone time to get between him and the net before shooting it, and usually was stopped by a Blues defenseman. I do hope he plays better in the regular season. I love you B-Rad, but I hope we’re not paying you almost $8 million a year to do that…
Stars played tonight (well, I guess technically last night since it’s 3am) in Chicago and lost, 4-3. Crombeen and Conner both got 2 assists. Goals were scored by Niskanen, Lundqvist and Eriksson. I don’t feel like elaborating, since I did not see the game and we lost. I hate losing, as I’ve mentioned many times.
I also have the first person to add to the shitlist this season, but sadly do not have photoshop yet. So the Shitlist will return as soon as I am able to photoshop stuffs.
