It's customary after Texas Stars games for the "3 Stars of the Game" to be announced. Three players are selected as sort of MVPs of the game and they may be a combination of players from both the winning and losing team. I thought it might be fun to do something along these lines and pick 3 favorite photos from each game to share on my blog. These will simply be 3 of my favorite images or moments from game day.
I'll kick things off with 3 shots from last night's game against the Rochester Americans. My first pick is actually from before the game. Veteran players from last season's championship team finally received their rings and a brief ceremony was held in the locker room to hand them out. Curtis McKenzie was proud to show his off! My second pick is a blocker save by goalie Jack Campbell as the puck is about to hit (love catching those!) Campbell took over for Jussi Rynnas for the 3rd period after Texas gave up a 3 goal lead in the 2nd period. The third pick is a scramble for the puck as Maxime Fortunus races to prevent an open net goal in the last moments of play. Unfortunately, the Stars fell to the Americans 6-5.
