He should be named to the all star team more often.

It's like he plays better with Benn out of the game.

Finland beat Canada. Maybe he got hyped up.

Miro showing the Devils they made the wrong first-overall pick last year. Which, you know... good.

Radulov was insane. Lazy penalty in the first minute, then two unbelievably bad turnovers on the same PP to waste 60 seconds. Then... three assists, two of which were godlike.

Polak on the ice for three of the four goals against, and looking like ass in each one. His run of puck luck might've come to an end in 2018. Faksa also had an uncharacteristically awful game, with shitty half-passes leading to the first and third goals against. He also rammed into Bishop on that third goal, which may or may not have lifted Bishop's leg a bit and allowed the puck to slide underneath. Also led the Stars in ice time.

Ever since the Litesgasm, there's been a lot of articles written on the Stars, and most of them have roasted the front office over the coals. Almost none have roasted Bennguin, who are 19 missed games of Klingberg and 12 of Radulov from being right where they usually are, points-wise (only their secondary assists have dried up this season). But a few have also got onto Montgomery, for preaching an up-tempo, possession style, and practicing the exact Hitchcockian opposite. I mean, when Blake Comeau is 5th among forwards in ice time, yeah, you're going to have depth scoring problems.

Well, for two periods, we really saw what this team was capable of when they play Montyball. I think they were outshooting NJ 28-2 at one point? Fun to watch, even if it meant NJ got some high-quality chances on our turnovers.
