Stars, Flyers Need A Win

from Spector at Fox Sports,

It was not the start to the conference finals that the Philadelphia Flyers and Dallas Stars envisioned, down 2-0 in their respective series against the Pittsburgh Penguins and Detroit Red Wings.

Both clubs must now find ways to rebound quickly in their next games or face the prospect of facing a deficit in the series too steep to overcome.

Brett Hull Chatter

From Joe O’Connor at the National Post, some chat with Brett Hull, co-GM of the Dallas Stars.  A sampling:

National Post: You were a goal scorer and a teammate of Dominik Hasek in Detroit. And you know Chris Osgood, whose been around a long time. So, do you have any tips for Dallas’ shooters in the Western final?
Brett Hull: The way goalies play goal now, they are all the same. There are only certain places you can shoot today on an NHL goalie and score. [...]

NP: What is your guilty pleasure?
BH: Can I say tequila?

NP: Finish this sentence for me: Old scorers never die they just…
BH: Learn to score off the ice.

What’s With All The Red

from Michael E. Young of the Dallas Morning News,

To some, Detroit fans are known as the “Red Army.” Others favor the slightly disparaging “U-Haul Army,” for the Detroit diaspora that carried Michiganders east, west and south when troubled times hit the region’s auto manufacturers.

Maybe that scattering is the reason Red Wings fans remain so true to the home team. Only a few groups – like the rabid fans of the New York Yankees and Green Bay Packers – can match this unwavering dedication. Packers fans travel in such numbers that they can make a game at Texas Stadium feel like a trip to the frozen tundra.

No Suspensions For Ribeiro & Osgood

via Mike Heika of Dallas Stars Blog at the Dallas Morning News,

The league just confirmed.

There are some fines involved, but both Ribeiro and Osgood are good to go for Game 3.

That’s important for the Stars, particularly if Lehtinen is hurt and can’t play.

Ribeiro was quite feisty today, so it will be interesting if he transfers that energy to the ice.

added 7:07pm, Sorry for the back to back posts on this topic.  At least we used different sources!

Stars Off-Day Press Conference

An Interview With: D. Tippett, M. Modano, M. Ribeiro, M. Turco, B. Richards…

Q Hear anything on Ribeiro?

COACH DAVE TIPPETT: Haven’t heard anything from the league yet, no.

Q How do you prepare if you don’t hear anything until tomorrow?

COACH DAVE TIPPETT: We’ll hear something today. I don’t suspect anything. I suspect he’ll be a player. Looking at the situation, I can’t see how it would be a suspension, myself, but that’s for them to figure out. And from our side, I’m going to prepare like Ribeiro’s a player and move forward.

Stars Could Have Easily Won

via Dan Noxon of the Dallas Stars Blog at the Dallas Morning News,

This was the kind of game I expected from the Stars. They played much better and they’ve got to be heading home tonight knowing it was one they very easily could have won….

But I say this series is far from over.

I’ll say this, too. After seeing the game-ending replay several times, Ozzie could have been called for a dive had the game still been going. It’s not like Ribs even really swung the stick.

Same Story For Dallas

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,

Outside, on the Riverwalk that skirts Joe Louis Arena, the 2008 Downtown Hoedown was underway – a country music block party in the cradle of Motown. On the street-level apron just outside the building, the Dallas Stars’ bus was greeted by the smells of Big Al’s BBQ, a fund-raiser for the Detroit Red Wings’ Foundation, featuring plenty of down-home cooking from the arena’s executive chefs.

Motor City did its best to make the visitors from down Texas way feel right at home on Saturday night – until they stepped on the ice, that is.

There, it was the same sad story for Dallas.

added 10:49pm, again, from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,

Stars’ goalie Marty Turco called it “a pretty dangerous play on their part – a butt-end to the eye. It’s one thing to engage in a physical battle; that’s pretty gutless if you’re hitting someone in the face, if that’s what did happen, and I’m pretty sure it did. We’ll see what transpires in the next little while.”

more on the incident at the end of the game…

Video of the incident added on 5/11/08, watch below…
