Stars Lose. From the Tampa Bay Times: “The Lightning sent a message in the first period Monday night of Game 2 of the Stanley Cup final. It was to themselves as much as to the Stars: They are a better team than the one that showed up to start Game 1. In Game 1, Tampa Bay let Dallas set the tone, failed to execute and lost. In Game 2, the Lightning scored three goals in the opening period — two on the power play — and went on to a 3-2 win at Edmonton to even the series at one game each.” BTW, Joe Pavelski tied Mike Modano for the second-most playoff goals by an American-born player. My analysis: In Game 3, the Stars absolutely need to play hockey. They can do this.

I used it to make a Luka mask that I can’t wait to wear.
