Osgood improves to 9-0

With the Red Wings 5-2 win over the Dallas Stars Chris Osgood has improved to an impressive 9-0 record in this post season. The win gives Detroit a 3-0 lead in a series that is effectively over.

Dallas has a solid team, but they are not able to pull off a 4-0 run against a team that is this good. Turco may steal one or two, but without any offense, he won't be able to do more than that.

Turco has actually had a bit of a let down in this series, and while he hasn't gotten any help, neither has he been over the top outstanding like he usually is. The Red Wings scored five goals on only 21 shots last game. Dallas is the type of team that needs their goalie to be saving around 98% every night so .761 save percentage is not going to come close to cutting it.

Meanwhile the undefeated Chris Osgood has a solid enough team in front of him that a mediocre save percentage of .889 is more than enough.
