Dear Stars,

by Kristine

Tonight you play the Red Wings. I’m pretty sure you know this already, but this is kind of a big game. The Wings are third in the league with 59 points – in case math isn’t your strong point, that’s a full twenty points more than you currently have. Don’t let that freak you out though. When you beat them in December, they had 42 points and you had 24.  See? You can do it!

Here’s the thing, though. The Wings have won their last four and are looking to extend that winning streak to five tonight. But, wait. Weren’t they coming off a four-game winning streak when you faced off in December? Hmm.

This looks good for you, Stars. You’ve proved you can beat them under very similar circumstances, and we all know how much you enjoy proving people wrong anyway. Nothing like being the underdogs.

I have to warn you, though. The Wings are going to be putting some serious shots on net tonight. They’ve had 40 or more SOG in five of their last seven games. This means that you defensemen will need to be top notch, or that Turco is going to have to figure out what the puck is and how to stop it. Even better, both! I have confidence in you though, since you’re actually third in the league for SOG against with 27.6.

In summary, you can win tonight if you play some tight defense, remember how much you like beating teams nobody expects you to beat, and bring your A-game. Good luck!

Confidently yours,
SHR
