Hansen: ‘I’d rather play like [expletive] and win’

Colton Sceviour had the game-winner and Kari Lehtonen made 27 saves for the shutout as the Dallas Stars blanked the Vancouver Canucks 2-0 Wednesday night.

With the shutout, the Stars made a little regular season history.

Vancouver was out-shot 29-27 in the loss including a 17-4 margin in the second period when Sceviour netted the winner.

The loss stretches the Canucks’ streak to five games without a win.

“From the game against New York it was a couple of steps in the right direction, but still nothing to show for it,” said Hansen alluding to the Canucks’ 5-1 loss to the Rangers Saturday night. “”I’d rather play like [expletive] and win games. But that’s not the way it’s going right now.”

Eddie Lack made 27 saves while seeing his record drop to 2-4-2 on the season.

“It’s a weak goal, what else can I say?” said Lack of Sceviour’s second of the season. “It’s kind of like in between, should I take it with my stick, should I take it with my glove.”

Antoine Roussel had the other Stars’ goal, into an empty net, with less than a minute remaining in the third.

Dallas has now won back-to-back games and three of four.
