At this point it was 4-3 for the Stars. Until Alex Goligoski from his own end entered the Canadiens zone, released a shot that was tipped in past Lawson by another former Canadien Mike Ribeiro to give the Stars a 5-3 lead before going into the 3rd period. Felt good to get up and wave my Stars flag after the Habs scored three unanswered goals.
Going into the third period Stars were dominating in the shots and face off department. Not much happened in the third period, Beskorowany was playing well while rookies like Vincour and Larsen were having a solid game. Other players that looked good was the whole first line with Morrow, Ribeiro and Ryder (Ryder was all over the ice throwing hits and generating great scoring chances with Ribeiro). Goligoski was another player that stood out to me.
With a little under two minutes left in the game Fraser was able to rip one passed goalie Lawson to give the Stars a 6-3 victory over the Montreal Canadiens.

Overall I enjoyed it very much, it felt great when I was one of the few standing up and waving my flag when the Stars would get on the board. Whenever I get a chance to see my team play live it will always be a great experience that i'll remember for a long time! I still remember watching my first ever live Stars game in Montreal in 2001 with Eddie in nets winning 4-1!
Most memorable moments in the game :
- The small tribute they had for the players who passed away during the off-season and seeing Skrastins in the video, it broke my heart. I could only imagine how the Stars players felt seeing Karlis in the tribute.
- Seeing Schultz and Wathier fight. My first ever live fight I experience, it was a great one too.
- Being one of the only fans standing up and waving my Stars flag when the Stars would score and getting boo'ed left and right. Proud to be a Stars fan!
- My favorite .... Seeing Ribeiro come out on the ice after being announced the first star mocking Montreal! Luckily I got a couple of pictures of him doing so!
|Love having him on my team!|
Here are a few more pictures I took from the game, enjoy and thanks for reading! Stars come back to Montreal on February for a regular season game! Can't wait for that!!!
