from Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News,
The 33-year-old is 6-1-0 in his last seven games with a 1.70 goals-against average and a .934 save percentage.
“I feel good right now, that I’ve come a long way,” he said. “My ability to stay on my feet longer to react to second plays or even third plays from a balanced position has been a great feeling for me lately.
“I have been fighting my body and my movements this year, and I’ve worked hard to get that back. I just want to be the guy they deserve back there.”
Turco has been the biggest reason for the Stars’ turnaround, providing key stops at critical times and also helping the defense with his ability to handle the puck.
“No matter what you do, your goaltending has to be good,” Tippett said. “It can do so much for the team’s confidence. It can allow players to overcome mistakes, it can change a game with a big stop early or late. Marty has done that for us lately.”
