 Stars\' youngsters shine in preseason win over St. Louis
posted 8 years ago

DALLAS -- It's officially the second week of training camp. The Dallas Stars' roster number has been cut to the mid-30s. Practices are much more concentrated on nuances and sharpening all facets of the game. From here on out, the focus on the details increases exponentially. And for the most part on Saturday night, the Stars liked a lot of the details they saw. The Stars scored three goals in the third period, capitalizing on a 35-shot night in their 4-3 victory over the St. Louis Blues at American Airlines Center. Winning isn't necessarily the name of the preseason game. But the Stars nevertheless walked away happy with that victory, as well as their numerous scoring opportunities and improved puck-handling. "You've got to take the summer hockey out of you and get down to business," coach Dave Tippett said. "It'll be interesting to see at the end of this year; there'll be so many competitive games, one goal is going to decide a ton of them. Details might save you a goal, might get you a goal." Young players were once again strong, as B.J. Crombeen and James Neal each scored goals. Neal's came when he chased down a loose puck, outskated two Blues and slipped a backhand between goalie Chris Mason's legs. Crombeen's goal went under Mason's right arm. "We talked about firing more pucks, and Crommer comes down with a great shot," Tippett said. "In a game you feel you should be winning, you need something to happen. And that helped."
