Dallas Stars postgame remarks

One thing to point out was the first period tonight was the most complete first period I’ve seen the Stars play this season. They kept Detroit under wraps and didn’t let them get comfortable and set up anything. Dallas didn’t commit a first period penalty either which was nice.

The last thing is I liked how the team finished the game tonight in the third period. They didn’t allow Detroit to carry the momentum over from the last half of the 2nd period. Also, it was nice to see Jason Robertson get a couple of insurance goals.
