Roberto Luongo made 31 saves in Vancouver's 3-1 victory over the Stars. Dallas has now reached the halfway point (more on that later).
Some thoughts from several Stars players (special thanks to the Stars media relations staff for providing these):
Brad Richards on Loungo's play: "He was solid. His usual self. He's such a big guy; he makes a lot of saves look easy. Positionally, for the most part, he's usually sound. He made some big saves when he needed to."
Richards on the game overall: "We played some good hockey, and had them on their heels a bit. We probably ran out of time to beat Luongo. He held them in there in the third. It was one of those games that we knew was going to be the way it was played in the first, that it was going to be a tight checking game."
Brenden Morrow on the team after 41 games: "I think we are starting to gain some momentum and play with some confidence at home. It could have been three in a row, but the last two games, we had real good efforts. Tonight was a little slow, bouncing around, not really getting many breaks. Today was a disappointment but through 41 games, we're still plugging away, trying to get an identity."
Morrow on his no-goal: "I didn't really see it, but the way that the rule stands, I propelled it into the net. It did go off my skate. I think Loui ended up shooting my skate out from under me. But, the way the rule is, I don't think they really made a mistake."
Coach Marc Crawford on Morrow's no-goal: "That's a call that they make from upstairs. They judged that it was a kicking motion; the call didn't go for us. We kept our determination. I thought we were really good right after the goal, almost scoring immediately. Then we did score, right at the end of the power play after their guy came out of the box. It's one of those things where you just try and keep your focus, try and keep doing the right things."
