We lost, but I really wish I’d seen this game.

Stars lost 3-2 in their opening pre-season game against the Blues last night.  Darn no local channels and the NHL Network not airing this game, because judging by the penalties, it seems like it would’ve been an exciting game to watch!

Krys Barch lead everyone in penalty minutes with 24, yes TWENTY-FOUR, 17 in the first period alone!  He receieved 2 fighting majors, a instigator minor, a tripping minor and a 10-minute misconduct.  Sean Avery was not far behind, getting 18 minutes himself; 2 hi-sticking minors, an interference minor, a roughing minor and a 10-minute misconduct.

Avery wasn’t all bad, he did manage to score the Stars second goal of the night, with assists from Steve Ott and Brad Richards.  Loui Eriksson got the first goal, assisted by Joel Lundqvist and Matt Niskanen.

Thursday night’s game is HOME against the Avs, and don’t forget if you go to take canned food for Hurricane Ike victims, you’ll get free tickets to another pre-season game!
