It was an all-timer at the big barn in Big-D last night. I've been in the PA Announcer chair for 7 seasons now and I can't remember a regular season win like the one the Dallas Stars had last night. Not only did they dominate their Central Division rival the Colorado Avalanche, they did it in the most convincing fashion.
Stars forward Alexander Radulov came off a one-game suspension (for being late to team practice) to score his 18th, 19th, and 20th goals of the season, which surprisingly was his first career NHL hat trick.Talk about a statement! Goaltender Ben Bishop on any other night would have been the Number One Star of the game as he stopped all shots against him to post his second shutout in a row, the 6th of the season, and 29th of his NHL career.
Scroll down to see highlights including the hat-trick celebration from my PA chair and keep your eyes peeled for the Dallas Stars Ice Girl who skates by after picking up a bra off the ice. You're supposed to throw HATS not BRAS!
The following two videos contain footage courtesy of my pal Wayne Hardey. A big thanks for documenting the celebrations including my PA announcements.
