The Dallas Stars destroyed the Washington Capitals on Tuesday night 5-0. With this big victory, Kari Lehtonen received his fourth shutout of the season and the Stars have now won 5 of their last six. Previously, Dallas had lost their wild card position to Phoenix but with some stellar play as of late are back in the playoffs. Dallas begins a three game road trip in Carolina Thursday.
Jets fans have been on a bit of a roller coaster ride this season. Monday night’s game against the Anaheim Ducks was the best example. Winnipeg blew a four goal lead against the Ducks, in what has got to be one of the most frustrating games of the Jets 2.0. Fortunately, the Jets made up for it on Tuesday and beat the Phoenix Coyotes. Thursday night, Winnipeg welcomes Pittsburgh to the MTS Center.
Never let age deter you, at least Nasvhille’s Mark Van Guilder didn’t. At age 30, Van Guilder was called up for the first time by the big NHL club. Playing on a line with Colin Wilson and Viktor Stalberg, Van Guilder had no points but was on the ice for 8:27. Seth Jones has been cleared to play after missing four games with a concussion. The Preds are in Anaheim on Friday.
