    I want to see a bounce back game from Andersen.

    I also hope that Matthews and Tavares can keep up their goal scoring pace.

    This is a big game. That top line in Dallas is red hot, and bishop has been a wall early. Andersen will need to bounce back and not suck.

    I realize this was last season but when the Leafs played the Stars in Dallas they won 4-1 and it was on the second night of a back to back.

    Strange. I live in Ottawa and subscribe to Roger's Super Sportspack and I just went to look at what channel the game is tomorrow night and it's not showing.

    I've gotten the sportspack every year for like well over a decade and they show them all. Hopefully it picks it up tomorrow and adjusts.

    Maybe it's because game is on TSN4 (Bell) ?

    How is this a big game? The playoffs haven't started yet... or is it April?

    Would like the third line to start contributing offensively. Would be nice to win in regulation, though I'll take the 2 points any which way as long as we're walking away with 'em.

    Dallas was 0-4 against Winnipeg last season. Dallas smoked Winnipeg on Saturday. It's crazy how much impact a new coaching staff with the right system can have on a team.

    Also, for those who wish to pay their respects/ask forgiveness from His Greatness Mr. Roman Polak, Stars fans have set up a shrine-thread for supplicants.

    If Dallas wins and Carrick has a multi point night, oh boy.

    Carrick's been good so far with the Stars. We hated on him for the smallest mistakes.

    3rd and 4th lines gotta start chipping in a bit... relying too much on the big guns.

    Kadri had 3 goals against Dallas last season. Might be a good game for his line to get moving on the scoresheet a little.

    This will balance out once teams actually start taking the big guns seriously and moving their better shutdown players up against them in order slow them down. But until that happens we'll get to enjoy 80s style hockey.

    Or how irrelevant small samples are (ie. Leafs being 7-1 vs Boston in reg season last two years and losing to them in the playoffs).

    Hopefully Andy can post a semi-respectable save % this game.

    That will depend on what the team does defensively in front of him. If there's no tightening up, at least mentally, expect another bunch of goals going in the Leafs net.

    Big!

    You win them now, then the games in April won't need to be so big.
