No Goal For You

Marty Turco just put on one of the best goaltending performances we've ever seen. 35 shots, 35 saves, and a 2-0 shutout victory for the Dallas Stars against Vancouver, which evens the series at one game each.

Turco, who has a bad reputation for choking in the playoffs, was simply perfect tonight. He controlled all of his rebounds, didn't let the Canucks push him around in the crease and even tried to score an empty-net goal himself near the end of the game. Overall, it was one of the best hockey games we've seen him play in a long time.

We're still rooting for the Bad Luck 'Nucks to pull this one out, but it's good to see Turco erase the negative talk he's gotten over the years. He's a great goalie, any way you cut it, and he works harder than most guys much younger than him.

Can't wait for game 3.
