Turco should get start his fifth straight


It appears Stars coach Marc Crawford will start Marty Turco in goal against San Jose tonight. It would be his fifth game in a row and his 10th in the last 11 games. That's much more than Turco had played to start the season.

The Stars play back-to-back games in San Jose and then Los Angeles. It would make sense to have Turco play one game and Alex Auld the other.

So how would you approach it if you were Dallas? Which goalie should play in which game?

I think I'd throw Turco in there tonight against San Jose. He's had some success out there and he, like the rest of the team, is probably ready to make amends for blowing the lead against Anaheim the other night. Turco played well in that game, stopping some really tough shots early. But he did let in a late goal that he probably wants back. I'd put him right back in the goal and let Auld take Saturday's game in LA.

What would you do?
