"This is not going to be a contrast in styles. This is not going to be the high flying Dallas Stars with Spencer and sharp and Sagan who was injured and Ben and Cody Eakin in that group. This is going to be the team that plays structure the team that plays great team defense. The team had backtracks better than any team in the NHL. According to Ben Lovejoy and against another team in Saint Louis that place. A very strict I'll call it the one three one rather call the trap. But Saint Louis is not going to outscore you either say Lewis's mode since they've gotten hot since January. I is they give up very few goals. They do not allow a whole lot in the net. Dallas Stars Ben Bishop, you know, this team's going to a lot of goals. So this is Owen. This is almost a first team to two is probably going to win most of the games in this series because you're not because the amount of bucks going in. Well, let's talk a little bit about the few changes. And then we'll get into the details of one of maybe the key differences in this team Matija Margaret turns the lineup tonight. After missing the last four games to a lower body injury which he suffered in game. Two in Nashville in the first round he returned in that game much to the surprise of everybody on the stars bench. But he did not play after that. He could have played probably the last two games games five or six, but because of the way the stars were playing with their current lineup. They kept it the same burst. They're not holding Mark back anymore. He's in an Tyler pit lake comes out. It's no Tyler but Matija, Marcus a better hockey player. Mark has great hockey. Senses. Fast. Skater on the back check. And he creates opportunities, unfortunately from Matisse he hasn't buried a whole lot of them. But he creates opportunities and create space and stretches the defense. Unlike Tyler lick now all that being said you've got Jason specif- playing on the right wing now in that line and just endowing in the middle. So this line somehow gets caught on the ice and specis ability to backcheck on the right wing because of his lack of speed compared to pick is exposed tonight. You might see pit look right back in game two Jason sped. But there's no Mark sits were long period of time in this series on the back end Taylor Fedun replacing Jamie Alexia who Jim Montgomery said yesterday has a lower body injury. So he will not play game one. He's day today. I don't know if we saw anything particular Bruce that stood up on that. And so I'm not trying to decry conspiracy theory here, it's very possible that elect is dealing with something. And he probably is. But I got the feeling that in this game because of the difference in the way that Nashville and Saint Louis are and how they line up the stars. Maybe wanted somebody like Fedun back into get some games. He hasn't played. His game against the press. I would say with that didn't practice yesterday. It sort of raises some probably right? But the whole thing about the Dallas Stars. And the Saint Louis blues is a big contrast in style. And one thing that we saw with national was Dallas belt they how to get physical June got beaten and a couple of one on one battles down low with Alexia Alexia in the short time. He played each game about ten minutes was a physical beast for the Dallas Stars, you know, game game six against national almost knocking. Right. Ellison to bench electric was a physical presence now with Saint Louis out there. The Dow's first of a little bit of a different strategy to start the series. And that is they want to be the quicker puck moving team. They wanna get Klingberg and hey skin and to a certain amount to get the puck and get it going in the other direction forcing Saint Louis to go back into their one three one which should allow Dallas outs out of his own. If Dallas can't move the puck quickly. Then you have the blues big time for triggers trying to grind things out. So it's a little different strategy in that down you want to get the puck and move it fast. The differences the blues really set their trap at their own blue line while Nashville set it up the red. Mine so for Dallas, it was more of a you can get the puck past that initial surge you have chances to work it down low with Saint Louis you've got to get the puck up get it in and then use your speed whether they will see different from Dallas today. The different. Fortunately that against national national is the puck in work the cycle go to the net. Dallas is going to try to move the puck side decide whether that be probably behind the net more often than they can get the chip in. They're gonna try to play it behind the net will say left to right right to left. They want the blues bigger stronger defense moving side to side national had quick defenseman that was invention. They could get the puck aside decide, but it couldn't have physical Dallas Dallas knows what the blues defence is bigger. They want to get those big players having to get out of the conference on the biggest difference. I think between the stars this year and in two thousand sixteen we are we have knowledged revenge story. There are still a few players that played in that series for douses. A lot of guys in fact, nine players in tonight's expected starting lineup for the Saint Louis blues. Played in game seven back in two thousand sixteen that of course, not very fun moment for stars fans where they lost at the. And we're knocked out of the playoffs when it felt like they could go all the way if they if things fell into place persevered difference is goal tending, isn't it? And this is maybe just a little bit. Like what we talked about in the national series, which is to elite goaltenders in Pekka Renee, and Ben Bishop going head to head trying to see who would be the winner in that. And it turned out that indeed Ben Bishop outduel Pekka Rene Rany was fine. But Bishop was better tonight, obviously Bishop much better and khudobin than the stars tandem in two thousand sixteen but the difference between Bishop and rookie, Jordan Bennington. Who's had a phenomenal year is a lot of playoff experience. Bennington went from bathing. The starting goaltender for San Antonio H L to being the savior of the St Louis blues season, fourteen and two at home. However, one of those losses was to the Dallas Stars loss at home as a starter. Right. Jamie. Ben had the hat trick. But you look at Bennington numbers this year twenty four five and one a one point eight nine goals against average save percentage of ninety two point seven percent. The blues Mita them they were they were flounder. Jake Allen was not doing a good job in net. The blues were floundering and they're week. Goaltending was revolving resentment reverberating throughout the team Vinnie thing came in allow the blues play their style and Tarasenko got going turn their season around. Then Bishop we know what he's done for Dallas twenty seven fifteen and two in the regular season. A one point nine eight goals against average and a save percentage of ninety three point four percent. So you look at these two goals that are very very good top of the game in the NHL expect bitty tend to be a finalist for the for the Calder trophy for rookie of the bishops we know as a finals for the trophy. And the one thing that stood out for your these goaltenders zone is each faced an existential crisis during the first round of the playoffs. Then Bishop is you know game three against national horrible game for him to soft goals. Tallis's? The game comes out wins. The next three Bennington had lost two at home in Saint Louis goes to Winnipeg gives up two goals in the first period. The crowd gelling you look nervous. And then he comes back to win game three game five and game six. So he had his moment Bishop how the moment and like great compa- great competitors. They found a way to overcome and either team to victory so much more to talk about so little time. So we will move right along to up next. We will hear from stars head coach Jim Montgomery as we get ready for game one of the second round series between the stars and blues.

"Lead one nothing the Lightning's lone goal coming from Andre pilot was thirteen minutes and forty nine seconds to go and the second period. Dave, you just mentioned it a second ago. But both teams managing the puck a bit better defensively. In terms of the rush coverage, you not seeing so much running gun an odd man rushes going either way. The stars actually getting some pretty good offensive zone time, but not super dangerous in just one shot coming in that really long stiff chip that. They had the opening five minutes of the second period. Spats in podcast from neutralize one by the lightning headman for Girardi. And the railway beat podcast to the redlining. Never touched it. It's going to be an icy rolled past him down, the ice hockey is not happy about it. He said that he touched it or was impeded. Stick was lifted. But we didn't touch it. You can touch it. It's an icing drawn to the right of ASA last. Look like on the play his stick was lifted. But maybe he's making argument that he did touch it before. Stats and pocket. Dan. It's one by spots at the center point pass. Good read by head many fronted cog Lana. They're blocked the pass encounters side at center crocodile. I love circle shot at just over the net. Boy, didn't miss much rebound convert dispense at deals to Andrew middle, etc. Condo right circle. Shod might have been going. Why bass lobster gloves. You've just to be sure. Thirteen twenty two left in the second. One nothing. Tampa bay. Let's not man rash going the other way. It's kind of a three on two there, and Victor Hedman just rips that one you said it didn't miss by much but a good play by him overall. He kind of intercepts the pass intended for cog Liana down low and immediately goes on the offense. Sara Lee and Sagan lineup on this draw. Finding almost got caught long change in the second. Last time to say good line was out there, and they really hustled off the bench to help disrupt a play look like could have been a two zero at first blush. These one by Sara Lee, MC dot Matthew Joseph at center ice down the right wing speeds across the line, right circle. Joseph angles is way behind the net pummeled at a ban. Rag. Ilab gets a stick on it for his skin. Any script by Sara Lee? Anthony, Sarah keeps moving for Joseph right corner, Roman Polak finally steals it and turns it from euro he's gonna right wing Radulovich center lifted up mental that's a hand pass Sega band. What the fans are bellyaching about that was clear as day Sagan gloved it down and Ben touched in next. You mentioned that opportunity earlier that's one line that you don't want to have a bad line change against and that'll happen when you have tired players because the stars had some good zone time in the Lightning's in those three players combined for one hundred and three goals last season. John Cooper talks about them this morning saying they've always been effective. They've always been really dangerous now, obviously lying that they have to shutdown and and try to keep the scoresheet. Hintz wins the center ice faceoff from stamp goes the chew skins looks at in search of under pressure hints, nearly store Yanni gorgets back record when passing his skates. Fortunately, kicks it to pull up. Having a little problem. More in this period coming out of their own zone cleanly, finally Sergei to Gordon setter now to stamp goes. But he's zigzag behind polite, and that's an offside against Tampa Bay Solly the passes are completely errant, but they're like behind guys just stop the skeet, and it's slowing up the attack one of the lightning in the second. I thought that second half of the first period, especially the stamkos line. They were a great example of it. But they were executing passes a lot better than what we're seeing right now. Like, you said, Dave. Finding wanna play with pace. And when they are playing with pieces passes out of the DS owner tape to tape very difficult for the other team to deal with Sara Lee's thrown out of this neutral zone vs against Sagan. Matthew, Josefa, take it Sagan winds it. He's going back for Sega powers taking up the middle of center for the lightning. Again. The pass knocked away by Cockburn dump it down the ice Kucha. I mean down there and getting an icy who Travis tied up by hey, skinny Trump gets away. Kucherov of the right circle is getting knocked it off his stick. It's held in Strommen right point. But a quick counter. Ben garage allotted center with the lightning zone. Alexander Radulovich point is checked good work right there by mcdonagh who travel counter to mcdonagh across the blue line, right circle. Who drop moving for Alex corn, right circle. Alarm muscles his way to the right point. Dotted down low for Sara Lee, right circle. Anthony, seraglio one of them lighting of the second cycles for kucherov, right circle process. Mcdonagh missed pinballs out of the zone. Komo's pursuing mcdonagh. Mcdonagh sleeps it away, but grabbing his Radulovich, Dan, right circle. Dangerous here a shot blocked by mcdonagh fragile right corner. The right point Klingberg, Lindau shoot. Save Ascii rebound rides off left corner on that Blake Cuomo pressure by the stars here. Komo's spinning in the right corner work cross as Pollak over to try and hold it in. But he could. Fielded at center ice backer Lindell flutes in Cuomo keeps moving for Tyler pit lake right corner. Lakers jostle by Johnny, Gordon. Steals it, but his Clariant that blocked by ASA Lindelof circle. What point bit lick a little feed high slot, FOX snuggle del suits block in front. Donna got a piece of that. Again, Yanni Gord finally busting free in the right wing launches it out to center starts had more possession time here in the second period. Though, they brought some major pressure Polack back into the lightning in right circle. Here. He shoots fighting it off. Philosophy circle shock wide rate even going to be tracked by Polat. They'll scoop it out of the zone, but again, it's glove down and neutralized by Polack. You've got checked by Gordon. Stamkos is gonna ram it in. But not all the way down the ice. Glen. You cannot get a full change here. He's gonna in regrouping in his own analyzing to get a couple of forwards off the ice. Right side, beats better zoom into the lightning. And that's the right circle. Shoots. Vassal ask any holds on ten twenty seven left in the second. You can feel momentum tilting toward the stars lighting after find a way to turn that faucet off. They still lead one nothing that was an incredibly long shifts for Ryan mcdonagh. He has the farthest to go on the line change that all started. When he had that great plan Radulovich goes in on the rush. She still didn't get a chance to get off the ice. He was on there for at least two minutes on the play that little plastic part that protects your skate when you're trying to block a shot. He blocked his shot. It broke the plastic part off. I think they took it off the ice. But you could just see he was absolutely gassed a much needed to whistle for him. He was the only defenceman and the only player on that line change that wasn't able to off the ice. Brayden point wins the zone face up and hands heading in his checked in the far corner donuts. Use gonna steal Val the juice skin left circle drops at centerpoint Kleinberg shoot walking away. Celeski rebound had been up the far side a penalty coming up, and this is going on head than I think he was trying to get the puck. I might have grabbed the stars player in the two skin. So Dallas will get the first power play chance of the night. Head into the box at nine forty eight. Headwinds usually so good at that too. Just getting the one arm on this because he has such a great reach. It makes it so hard. We got an extra two Kelly because he argued so it turned into a four minute double minor sorry about that on the replaying. He does get the hand off. But we're so used to seeing him do that because he likes to extend that reach with one hand on a stick and. That's tough. Four minutes to have to take right now in a game where the stars are starting to get some momentum offensively with a couple of chances in these last three minutes. I know you want to believe it all players are treated equally. But I mean Victor Hedman a Norris trophy winner. I think he deserves a little latitude. First penalty the game, and they slap them with an extra two for arguing. That's a tough pill to swallow for the lightning. Bannon stamp goes to the right of ASA Laskey. Won by Ben. But a false starts stars are eleven to the league in the power play. Twenty one point six percent lightning. Seventh on the penalty. Kill at Eighty-three percent. If the stars can score in the first two minutes, they'll stay in the power play for another two minutes. Bannon stamp goes both allowed to stay in there. And it's one by stamp goes the puck rolls behind the lightning that stall that is after it, and he backhands it out nicely done down the. Jon Greenberg will regroup behind the stars net. Dallas gates left right in the second. I power play chance of the night stars get two of them back to back. Bloomberg. This is it for Jason specif-. That's barreling down the right side at center into the lightning zone, right circle. Made a move to get open takes it behind the net tried to center at back on the nearside post. But then couldn't get to it. You kind of fumble it installing says thank you very much and drills down the ice. Three twenty three left to the double minor one of lightning in the second. John Klingberg Medalla Zo. Watson to center ice of middle. Fox chips it in and pursues left circle. He gets ticked by Gordy. Bobbled the clarion attempt radical out on keep right circle shooting block it away by ASA Lasky Siegen left circle. Centerpoint Klingberg Tyler Sagan left point on the power play angles to the left corner. Centerpoint Kleinberg teased drag right circle shot picked up by Vasyl off the puck right back to Radloff, right circle. Centerpoint klingberg. Stars on the power play here right corner, centering feed from FOX out to see the left circle shot. And it went over the net might have been deflected Klingberg right point breaks stick as he shot or he just mopped it, and it got blocked by Gordon pocket clears it down the ice break for the lightning. There is a little bit of a misfire on the shot from Klingberg to thirty left in the penalty. It's one of the lightning bureau. He skip marches out to center he's getting dances into the Lightning's on. Right. So go to Conrad Seapower playtime. Phosphates comes to ban left circles. Check and Callahan will bus freak out to the red line. Feels a little clock was back to his own zone. Cockburn to ten left in the penalty and Coburn will sweep it down the near sideline linked to the ice. Should take care of the first penalty tool. One now left the double minor spats another us at center ice. He's check by Matthew Joseph all connect with Girardi in the right wing and Gerardi will smash it down the ice once more. One fifty left on the back end of this four minute penalty to headman wondering lightning still he's going into center. Ice drop feet finds a sticker Klingberg to the red line and then now spats backer. Jamie back across Glenys trip in the line. They're going to be down to men. Unbelievable. Here's spats on the delayed. Call right circle decent spats as feed Sagan left point. It's going to be a long five on three for the stars delayed penalty right now for six on four Radloff right circle shot missed wide left gone on carries. The puck all the way back to the stars in the headman penalty is ticking down a bit here. Klingberg? We're kind of on the right wing white. He stopped to touch the puck though. Radloff high slot feeds an into the goalie one of the stars players running into vassal lives game. I wonder if that will negate that was Jamie Ben that penalty that was upcoming on the lightning one ten left the headman minor. There was a penalty coming up at the lightning. But Ben may have taken a goalie interference penalty during. The penalty. Call. Seraglio to the box for tripping. Oh, absolutely. He just barrelled over vacillates. I think that's obvious. Call to make. The fact that the stars had that long six on four cost them a five on three in a weird way. It's not a trip, but Anthony Sarah at the blue line on the initial delayed penalty is called for interference on Ben. They called interference. I thought it was a tripping obviously kind of stepped into him, but they called it an interference in or maybe it was actually the other way it could've been Jamie. Benn getting an interference against Andrei goaltender interference. I didn't hear the announcement of the surly penalty figured it was tripping. So it turns into minor penalties on both teams. It stays of five on four for a minute. Ten boxer wins the draw from stamkos Klingberg center point a shot shot-blocking front. Mcdonagh grabs it holds onto it. Turns it out to one one short eighty staffers across the line, right circle. Back in front podcast just out of his reach. He would add a tap in lightning. Do not score. In the shorthanded rushed out to the other way with numbers into the right circle. Little pass in front blocked. Rebound grabs by FOX, right circle. Centerpoint Kleinberg, left circle Sagan shoot say by that's Alaskan Strommen it down the ice forty seconds left in the headman penalty to lightning dodged a big bullet..
