Enemy territory: Defending Big D
A shootout loss isn't the best way to start a road trip, that's for sure, but it doesn't sting too bad after 7 straight wins. Vancouver continues their pre-Christmas Central division road trip tonight in Dallas, where the Stars have started falling out of playoff contention and towards Alberta territory. Since we last saw them in November, they have had a fairly solid average of blowing out their opponents, getting blown out, and a few OT wins.
