Anaheim Ducks vs. Dallas Stars - December 8, 2009

On Tuesday night’s game, The Ducks were up against the Dallas Stars, who are seven points ahead of us in the standings. We started off badly in the first period, giving Dallas a 2-0 lead. But, with 1:36 left in the second period, Lupul scored getting us back into the game. We ended the second period 1-3 Dallas. Just Six minutes into the third, rookie Dan Sexton scored his first goal of the season. This put the Ducks down 2-3. After his goal, you could tell the energy in the Honda Center was up. The team started playing harder and the fans went crazier. Sexton then scored again with only about a minute to spare in regulation, tying up the game. With the score tied 3-3, the game went into overtime. With only 47 seconds left in the overtime, Koivu scores, getting the Ducks out of their 5 game losing streak.

"This is unbelievable,” Sexton said to a TV reporter right after he won first star of the game. "We never stopped fighting and never got down on ourselves. To get the result feels great. It was super exciting.” As the smallest one on the ice coming in at 170 pounds, he sure stood out. After last night’s game, I’m sure he has earned himself some good nicknames. I read the Ducks Blog on the OC Register which had an article on Sexton stating one of his new nicknames, The Big Sexy. Others are Dan Sexyton or Dan the Sexy Man. He has definitely earned appreciation from his team and from the coach, Randy Carlyle.


Three Stars:
1. Dan Sexton
2. Saku Koivu
3. Joffrey Lupul
