The Dallas Stars snapped a three-game losing streak on Tuesday, and they did it in style with a 4-0 win over Minnesota.
“Last game was probably as complete a game as we’ve played, where we’ve defended well, and offensively our transition attack was good, and then we finished some good opportunities,” said Stars coach Lindy Ruff, per the Dallas Morning News. “I think from a system standpoint, the quality of the chances (against) has gone down, the numbers of shots (against) has been lower, and we haven’t made some of the big individual mistakes. Last game, was all-around a good effort.”
The Stars dominated Minnesota right off the bat; they led 2-0 after the first period, with a 12-3 edge in shots.
Tonight, the streaking Maple Leafs pay a visit to American Airlines Center. Though Toronto has won six in a row, it presents another opportunity to win the puck-possession battle against an opponent that’s been outshot in all but 10 of its 52 games this season.
