Just two teams have allowed more goals per game than the Dallas Stars, and while plays like this aren’t necessarily how they reached those rarified heights, it’s, uh, indicative.
Dallas Stars defenseman Patrik Nemeth was just minding his own business when Jiri Hudler fired the puck right at Nemeth’s face, at which point the damn thing got caught in Nemeth’s visor. I don’t this is exactly how visors are supposed to protect people from eye injuries, but, hey, whatever works!
Versus announcer Brian Engblom, his mind perhaps on the NBCU re-branding, had an unfortunately slip of the tongue last night, calling Detroit's Jiri Hudler "Hitler." An innocent mistake: Hudler's Sudetenlander name doesn't quite roll off the tongue.
