The post game guy was arguing that Nashville was fortunate to be only 2 goals down.

I can't believe they did it. You know that last year's team, even if they had made the playoffs, would have completely folded under that Nashville assault.

Monty has gotten some of the same guys really playing defense that I thought never would.

Outside of the 3rd period push, the Stars were the better team by a mile. Nashville also helped the Stars by playing terrible, a lot. That Seguin goal, please. Even when the Stars were down, it felt OK because they were getting glorious chances and controlling the puck. They kept plugging away and frustrating Nashville. Great game.

It doesn't hurt to have the Eye of the Jew either. We should totally play with that too.

And even in their big 3rd period push, the Stars survived attack after attack and even managed to get some pucks down the other way for their own chances. All positive!

Nashville isn’t playing great, but credit to Montgomery, he’s got the Stars frustrating the hell out of Nashville and the way they want to play.

I think the Stars still somewhat outplayed Nashville in that third period push because they really limited Nashville’s chances.

Nashville is not playing well. Also seems like the Stars defensive system really shuts down Nashville. I'm wondering if it would be less effective with a "high flying" team, but for now I'm happy it's working so we..

I was petrified of their first line in the beginning, but with each passing game Dallas has done a good job deflating them a little more. Don’t want anything waking those guys up.

I wonder where we’d be in the standings if Hintz and Dickinson had played like this from then start. Or is it Zuccarello that makes it work?

I guess it takes a while to figure out the big game, get stronger and more comfortable. They are figuring it out at the right time. Both have had their moments in the regular season. Even Dicky, not so much scoring, but defending well and playing a solid game. But adding Zuc, just slotted all the players better. He’s so fast and tenacious, it has to help as well.

Apparently the Stars are beginning to master the battle between their ears and "winner" wetware has been booted.

I am definitely impressed with how things have unfolded lately. Nill may have saved his job, which I'm still not sure how I feel about that...
