The best way I can describe the Dallas Stars this season is a cold chainsaw. It takes a while to crank up but when it runs correctly, it can be lethal. The Stars had another bad first period and trailed at the end of the first period. However, it was a completely new team that took the ice when the second period started. The Stars would dominate from the second period on as they won 5-2 against the Columbus Blue Jackets. Let’s take a look at the three takeaways from last night’s game against the Blue Jackets.
Dallas Stars vs Columbus Blue Jackets Recap: 3. Got to stop it with the slow starts
The Stars have got to figure out how to start off strong in the first period. The last two games they played, they had really bad starts to the hockey game. Monday night’s game against the Bruins ended in a loss. In last night’s game, the Stars had better luck and dominated from the second period on. If the Stars want to have success this season, they have got to get into a rhythm of having a good first period. They can’t rely on winning by starting in the second period.
Dallas Stars vs Columbus Blue Jackets Recap: 2. Attack of the mustaches
The reason why I named the article Attack of the Mustaches is four of the five goals scored last night were from players with mustaches. Mason Marchment, Craig Smith, Tyler Seguin, and Matt Duchene all scored goals against the Blue Jackets. If only Jason Robertson could grow a decent mustache, it would have been a sweep. It’s just something one of our followers Brittany pointed out as the game went along and it was interesting.
Dallas Stars vs Columbus Blue Jackets Recap: 1. The Seguin line was dominant again
Who had Tyler Seguin’s line being the top line on their early season bingo card? I sure didn’t but they are the main reason why the Stars are where they are in the standings. When the offense couldn’t get going last night, they stepped up in a big way against the Blue Jackets. All three of them ended up on the score sheet recording a goal. Matt Duchene had a really good game as well with a goal and two assists. Hopefully, they have some more goals in them this weekend.
