I am going to make this one quick, sorry but but the Stars vs Red wings game is starting right now. Stars come back home for today’s afternoon game against Detroit having lost another one on the road Thursday at Montreal. The team looked better overall, offense had chances and got some goals, but when you give up 5 goals you are not gonna win many games folks. Turco continues to be shaky and has not shown any improvement.
As I write this the Stars vs Red Wings game is a few ticks into the game. Auld will get the start in net, and it looks like we will mostly see the same lines from the Montreal game. Look for Loui, Richards, and Neal on the top line and also Modano to again be with Barch & Peterson as that line played great Thursday night. The key today will be the Powerplay/penalty kill for both teams as both teams are hoping for their special teams to catch on and both teams are just outside of the top 8 for the playoffs.
Dallas has been hot in the AAC, making up somewhat for how bad they have been on the road. But early on its 1-0 Red wings
Prediction: Dallas 4, Red Wings 3
