Stars earn 5-1 win over Sharks

The Stars picked up an impressive 5-1 win over San Jose tonight. Yes, that's the same Sharks team that's in first place in the Western Conference.

Lots of plusses for the Stars tonight: a hat trick by Steve Ott; great goaltending from Marty Turco; a strong defensive performance, led by Nicklas Grossman (plus-3) and Stephane Robidas (plus-2).

What's not to like? Dallas has now won four of its last seven games, which isn't anything special but it's a big improvement over how they had been playing.

Great game for the fans tonight. They even got to see a nice fight in the final 10 seconds when Mark Fistric went toe to toe with Jason Demers.
