Stars Ducks and Matt Cullen.

I watched most of the Stars and Ducks tonight after posting my game recap.

I noted that in the early games, there were four shutouts, including two 5-0 scores and two 2-0 scores. The Stars and Marty Turco made it a fifth shutout, and a third by the score of 5-0.

I would guess that this one of a few, or maybe the first time in history that there have been so many shutouts on the same night.

Unfortunately, Mike Modano was unable to get that elusive 1232nd point. Wednesday, the Stars will be in San Jose, and Modo will have another chance to become the most prolific American born player.

While the Ducks broadcasters were discussing the Modano milestone watch, they got to talking about American born players for the Ducks, which led them to a three minute discussion about Matt Cullen. He totaled 200 (65/135) points spread out over five and a half seasons for the Ducks, and is still very well liked on Orange County.
They gave high marks to Jim Rutherford for bringing Cullen back to Carolina, they commented on his very nice start to this season, and they said he was the best player on the ice in game 7 of the 2006 SCF.
