OGA's game2watch tonight sees the Toronto Maple Leafs in a rare appearance at the AAC in Dallas.
And the On Goal Analysis crew will be at the game with one representative watching from the Press Box.
For the first time in two years, former Star Niklas Hagman returns to Dallas. Hagman is one of the reasons the Leafs are beginning to play with a little more confidence and had a hat trick in their previous game in Anaheim.
Another item OGA will be watching is the play of the Monster. Remember, when it came down to the wire, Jonas Gustavsson was trying to choose whether to sign with Dallas or Toronto in the off-season. Well, he comes to Dallas at least for tonight. Tonight's game will have some added flare, I am sure.
So now, we have to face the Maple Leafs after they simply roasted the Ducks the other night?
Just great. The Stars, who are not playing poorly, are playing inconsistently as they work to understand and implement their new style and game plan under the new coaching staff.
We haven't seen this many Dallas defensemen charge the net like we have this season since the near-riot of the 10-cent Beer Night in Fort Worth against the Dallas Black Hawks.
The Dallas Stars are currently third in the Pacific with 14 points, only two behind leading Los Angeles. But the Stars have yet two win two games back to back this season. It's early, but don't you know they could use a two-game winning streak?
And don't you know that's exactly what's on the mind of the Toronto Maple Leafs today?
h/t to Frozen War Room
Both teams, coming off of big wins, will be hungry tonight. And the OGA Crew will be on hand to watch, blog, report and tweet the game to you.
Whilst Frozen Pill and Big Tex will indeed be happily planted in the un-cushioned seats, The Colonel will be in the Press Box, courtesy of Pierre McGuire and will be watching the action as TSN brings the game to the TV viewers. So we hope to bring you some unique insight, from various views around the American Airline Center, as we attend the game tonight.

And obviously, a huge thanks to Mr. McGuire for hooking a Colonel up.
