HOLY COW! That is pretty much all I can say. I honestly can’t remember the last time the Stars did that.
They came out early with the fight to win, going up 4-0 by 2 minutes into the second period. Otter got the scoring started just over 10 minutes in on a power play when he tipped in a shot from Brad Richards at the point. Then, just a little over a minute later, Jere Lehtinen got the Stars second power play goal of the night!!! Chris Conner got into the scoring with under 2 minutes left, shooting the puck at the net right after Modano on the face off.
After the Stars owned the first period, the Wings made a goalie change from Osgood to Conklin. But just 2 minutes into the second, Loui Eriksson made it 4-0 with ANOTHER power play goal. Can you believe that? The Stars who had suffered all season on special teams managed 3 power play goals against the Red Wings.
Hossa and Lilja managed to get the Wings on the board in the second period, but 4-2 would be the final score between the two teams.
I am just so estatic. With that win, the Stars are tied with 51 points with 4 other teams, ranging from 7th-11th place in the standings.
We can do this y’all!!
