Well, I think that was a lot better outing than this weekend. The Dallas Stars’ young guns get it done tonight against the St. Louis Blues 4-1. Scott Wedgewood was incredible in the net after taking over for Jake Oettinger who came down ill during the day. Wyatt Johnston showed why he belonged on the team finishing with a goal and an assist last night. Jason Robertson continued his point streak by scoring an incredible goal all by himself. Here are the three takeaways from last night’s game.
Dallas Stars vs St. Louis Blues recap: 3. Wyatt Johnston’s emergence
Wyatt Johnston is starting to find the net now after having a bit of a scoring drought after finding out he was staying with the Stars. Johnston has two goals in three games and has looked really good over the last week. If Johnston can start scoring goals constantly, this Stars team could be the most stacked it’s been in years. Hopefully, the confidence is growing in young Johnston and I cant wait to see him develop into a solid player.
Dallas Stars vs St. Louis Blues recap: 2. Scott Wedgewood to the rescue
Scott Wedgewood wasn’t even expecting to play tonight in St. Louis. He got a knock on his hotel room in the afternoon and was informed he was stepping in for Oettinger. Wedgewood dominated the Blues tonight saving 23 out of 24 shots. This is the type of goalie he is if he can get some defensive help from the team. I know some of the goals he’s allowed this year are his fault but this is what he can do when he has help. Huge kudos to Wedgewood for keeping the Blues at bay.
Dallas Stars vs St. Louis Blues recap: 1. Robertson is on fire
This was the facial expression on Dallas Stars fans’ faces after he scored his goal tonight. Robertson is on a tear right now and goaltenders should be very afraid of him. I personally thought the point streak was going to end tonight. Robertson shut me up and scored a goal after passing himself the puck and skating down the ice on a breakaway. Now the streak is at 16 games and the Stars are coming home for a homestand. Could he break the franchise record on home ice?
