As we pointed out before the game, Loui Eriksson has been a pain in the Anaheim Ducks' side for years. So much so that Anaheim Calling's Jen Neale had this exchange with Defending Big D's Brad Gardner before tonight's game:
JN: Please lock Loui Eriksson in a closet for me on gameday. Mkay, thanks.
As it turned out, that was a pretty good choice by Brad. With 6:14 left in the game, Eriksson finished off the Ducks with a slick wrist shot from the circle that got past Viktor Fasth. It was just his third goal of the season and broke a four-game goal drought. You could see the monkey slide off his back as he looked to the heavens after scoring. The Stars have now won three in a row and four of their last five games.
