That's a Wrap: Stars 2 - Jets 5

All good things must come to an end and oh boy what an end this was. The Stars suffered their only their second loss (first in regulation since) Feb. 19, a span of 12 games. Dallas was just thoroughly outplayed in this game up and down the ice from start to finish.

Winnipeg came out in this game on fire, peppering Richard Bachman with shots and constantly pressuring the Stars defense. The team that had four days rest just beat up on the team that had road games on back-to-back nights. The Jets scored one goal in the first period and four in the second to just take the air out of the Stars. After the third goal that the Jets scored, you could see the Stars players start to slump their shoulders.

The only player that scored for the Stars was Loui Eriksson, who had a goal in the second and third periods. Both goals came from a close range.

Richard Bachman suffered the loss but most of the goals were not his fault. He was letdown by turnovers and bad defensive coverage from his defensemen. The goal that was all on him was the fifth goal from the Jets, one that hit him in the face and bounced between his legs.

Philip Larsen returned in the last minutes of the second period but didn't come out for the third. He seemed to be okay though.

The Stars just need to put this game into the rear view mirror and regroup for a huge game Friday against the Chicago Blackhawks.
