Sturm Blog: Matter of Time?
Bob Sturm
Just a quick note before we head back to the rink for a rare home game tonight on last night's very impressive 2 points from Detroit.
 
Very nice work from the team defensively.  There is no doubt that they got a real break on the blown call over the Brad May goal.  That game should have been 2-2 with 13 minutes to go, and the Stars were done a huge solid from the officiating crew.  But then what?
 
I was sitting there thinking I have seen many times where the Stars have been in those situations and still broken down.  I have seen many situations where "it was a matter of time".  Maybe they get a big save, but it is a matter of time.  Maybe they get a break from the ref, but in Detroit, against that team, it is a matter of time.
 
So, there is the test.  Up 2-1, with most of the 3rd Period to go, was it a matter of time?  Not last night.  Alex Auld made the saves, the offense got that all important 3rd goal, and the Stars got themselves a win where they were not freaking out in the final minute.
 
That was well done, and well played. 
 
Now, it does keep the win one, lose one, pattern going, and now Hitchcock and the Blue Jackets await in Dallas for tonight's get together, but let's appreciate a nice win in the Joe.
 
Around the Stars, we remember how rare positive experiences are at Joe Louis Arena, so let's not ignore things when this current crew proves they can do just fine up there.  That was Detroit's first regulation loss in that arena this season, and the Stars handed it to them.
 
Now, 2 in a row?  Do we dare ask for 2 in a row?
 
Tonight.
