I think the Dallas Stars like playing in Canada. They improved their record on Canadian soil this season to be 6-1-1, and some of their highest scoring games have come in Canada (at Calgary, at Winnipeg.) It was nice to see the goal scoring come back today, after several one- and two-goal games. The Winnipeg Jets made the game very physical today, and not all of those hits were of the legal variety (the boarding of Alex Goligoski should be reviewed by the league.) Antoine Roussel had an especially rough ride, and I'm not sure what he said to Blake Wheeler that had the Jets' top line forward wanting to drop the gloves to fight. In other words, he had a typical Roussel game we've become accustomed to seeing. While the offense was good to see, it again came mainly from the top line. The Benn-Seguin-Nichushkin trio accounted for five of the six goals. While I'm never going to complain if they want to continue doing that, the lack of depth scoring in many games is becoming quite the concern.
