Versus has games every Monday and Tuesday Nights @ 7:30 EST, NHL Network usually has 3-4 games a week, other than that regional channels like Fox Sports carries a lot of hockey games, I watch probably 80% of all Stars games on Fox Sports Southwest
Pacific Division leading Dallas Stars (14-8-1) will try to make it 5 wins in a row as they host the NHL leading Washington Capitals (18-6-2) to Dallas tonight. The Stars have a good chance to see where they match up with one of the best teams in the NHL. A win tonight would build team confidence as well as some respect amongst the league and fans.
Mike Ribeiro extended his point streak to 5 games (2 goals, 3 assists) when he scored a Power Play goal in the 2nd period, and Brandon Segal nets the game winner midway through the 3rd period as the Stars made it 5 wins in a row as they beat the NHL's best team the Washington Capitals 2-1.
Raycroft was outstanding in net as he made 37 saves and kept the dangerous Capitals off the board until the 3rd period. Nice statement game by the Stars who are 7-1-1 in their last 9 games, and 7-0-1 in their last 8 at American Airlines Center.
The West is very tight once again this season, but you gotta love how well the Stars have been playing, people keep expecting them to fall back down the standings, but they just keep winning. 57 points in 44 games is no fluke. I will admit they are even suprising me with their play, I thought they would be better than most people thought they would be, but I didnt think they would be this solid.
