Stars vs. Avalanche, round 2
By Mark Stepneski
It’s round two between the Dallas Stars and Colorado Avalanche tonight and this time it will be in on the road.
Here are a couple of quotes from the Stars last night about playing the Avalanche back-to-back with the second game coming in Denver.
Coach Marc Crawford: “Tomorrow will be a huge challenge with Colorado in their building, the altitude and all those sorts of factors, but I really believe our guys are up to it. They feel like they're a team of destiny right now and they want nothing more than to win for each other and that's a pretty powerful quality to have as a group.”
Forward Adam Burish: “Back-to-backs are hard against the same team. They’re going home, so they’ll have some more energy and they’re playing for jobs, so these are tricky games, but if we play the way we did tonight and in the last few games, then we’ll be okay.”
This will be the Stars’ 12th and final back-to-back of the season. They are 8-3-1 in the first game this season and 5-6-0 in second game, including victories in the last two. Here’s a look at the results of each back-to-back set this season.
