The Dallas Stars defeated the Nashville Predators 5-2 on Tuesday night at the American Airlines Center, which puts their record at 44-22-9 on the year and gives them 101 points—marking the first time the team has gone over 100 points in a season since 2006-2007.
“It’s a good accomplishment, not a lot of teams hit that,” defenseman Alex Goligoski told the team’s official website. “We should feel good about that. The team has worked hard all year. We still have some time to add more points.”
The Stars have only five regular season games left before the playoffs, so the importance of each one is amplified to a degree.
“I think we're doing a lot of good things, and we're getting good results because of it,” said center Jason Spezza. “We're trending in the right direction. The games are only going to get tougher and tougher here as we get going.”
