Interesting info from the stat sheet.
Konopka – 6 hits – Macdonald – leading in ice time – with almost 15 minutes. Gillies – only 1:57.
Tavares – mild concussion – to be re-evaluated on Monday – probably will not play against the Rangers.
Weight with 5 shots – Bailey with 3.
DP comes up bigh right away with a sliding save. He has come up big in the first minute.
Being up in the Press Box has its benefits… I get to vote for the 3 stars of the game… Who shall I pick
Nielsen – great effort – just misses – then hits the post. Nino – had a great opportunity as well – these Isles are flying – just need to get some breaks and find a hole in the net.
Morrow gets a gift deflection – off a bad angle – DP had no chance… 4-2 DALLAS. Isles need to respond quickly.
Comeau from the point – one goal game again 4-3 DALLAS. Bailey with 2 helpers on the night. Sim is being his antagonistic self, but after Dallas retaliates – he is the only one getting a penalty.
Right after Sim goes to the box, Bailey draws a penalty on Richards, so 4-4 for 1:53
Wisniewski lays out Jamie Benn with a clean hit – and Benn is seeing a lot of STARS. Isles still putting out the pressure on Dallas – just need to get the breaks.
Robidas in the box – big opportunity for the Isles to tie it up. The pressure and the shots have been going. Matt Moulson ties it up at 4 with 2:39 left. A typical goal for #26.
Isles outshooting 44-21. This place is going nuts!
Robidas called for delay of game for the second time in as many minutes. Can the Isles get the victory?
A lot of opportunities – but all knotted at 4 – with overtime looming. Great job tonight – effort lackluster in period 1 – but at times DOMINATING in the last 2 periods.
Last year – the Isles lost in shootout at their home opener. Can they get the second point tonight?
Comeau called on a real questionable interference…. PK needs to be strong right now – watch Richards and Eriksson – we know what he did to the Devils last night.
PK being physical and not giving the Stars easy chances. – PK killed – well done,.
Martinek going for a blast – just short.
Shots – 47-22 going into the shootout.
Nielsen – missed
Richards – DP stopped it
Parenteau – hit the post
Neal – tried to go 5 hole – no way!
Moulson – tried to over-deke Lehtonen – and did not get it over.
Ribeiro – Goal – deked DP out of his jock – and Dallas gets the second point.
Disappointing way for it to end – but a great game by the Isles nevertheless.
