I figured a little bit of Phoenix pregame would be in order. Here are a few interesting numbers I checked up on.
Brygalov last 3 years vs Dallas: 2-3 2.25 .927 sv%
at the AAC: 4GP 1.99 GAA .934sv%
Turco vs Phoenix last 3 years: 9-5 2.62 GAA .884sv%
in Phoenix: 4.15 GAA .852sv%
Home: 10-5-2 Goals 48-42 pp 19% (18/94) pk 74% (67/90)
Road: 11-6-1 1SO Goals 56-50 pp 19% (19/98) pk 83% (89/107)
I have the individual year stats, but I figured few people were as dorky as me and wanted to see them
The Stars penalty kill has been surprisingly bad against Phoenix since 2001. Dallas better stay out of the box tonight if they want to win. The two main keys to the game will be fairly cliche, but not everything has to have some massive insight. Turco needs to be better than Bryzgalov who has dominated Dallas since going to Phoenix, and Dallas needs to stay out of the penalty box.
Dallas' last 8 games are against the Pacific Division.
Dallas has 7 home games remaining vs 6 road games
Interesting note I found from the schedule: Friday April 4th's Stars/Coyotes game isn't televised in Phoenix or nationally. So Phoenix is 5 points out of a playoff spot and their 2nd to last game isn't on tv? What a raw deal for Coyote fans.
