from Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News,
The Stars’ start to the season has been a bit like the wave pool at Hurricane Harbor – there are times when the team is on top of the water and splashing around happily. But there are also times when it slips beneath the waves or gets battered against the walls.
“It’s tough to build momentum,” goalie Marty Turco said after a 3-2 loss to Phoenix on Saturday that followed a huge 3-2 win against San Jose a few nights earlier. “Things seem to happen a lot easier when you get on a roll. You don’t feel like you’re grinding it out. Some guys can get on a roll and carry a team, but that hasn’t been the case so far.”
The one player who can help the Stars get on a roll is Turco. The veteran goalie has produced impressive runs in his career and appears to be in the middle of a pretty good stretch. Turco is 5-1-1 in his last seven games with a 2.10 goals against-average and .928 save percentage. So how can the Stars take advantage of that?
“Play him,” coach Marc Crawford said. “I mean, that’s pretty much what we need to do.”
