Wow wow and wow. Marty carried this team to another win against the Canucks. He let in one goal from Taylor Pyatt, and after that decided that was enough.
But he will not be getting any love, really, other than getting the 3rd star of the game.
The Swedes were definitely out in full force, on both teams. All 9 of them on the ice tonight played hard, and 2 of our Swedes managed to get a point. Loui Eriksson got the first Stars goal, from Matt Niskanen and Mike Modano on a power play. Then Loui got an assist from a great goal from Joel Lundqvist, his first goal in 11 months! Marty Turco also got an assist. I kept yelling at him to shoot it after the Canucks pulled their goalie, but sadly he did not hear me from my house. One day man, one day.
The three Stars were
- Marty Turco
- Loui Eriksson
- Daniel Sedin
Tomorrow night the Stars will be taking on Chicago. My memory only goes back as far as 2003, and they haven’t won on Valentine’s Day My Birthday from at least that year on. (That game sucked, btw, the one in 03.) Cross your fingers!
