Patrick Sharp didn’t get off to a hot start with his new team, but he’s certainly turned things around.
After not scoring in his first eight games as a member of the Dallas Stars, the 33-year-old has five goals in his last six contests.
Heading into the third period of Friday’s game against Carolina, Stars head coach Lindy Ruff decided to shake up his lines and the changes certainly paid off.
Ruff put Sharp on the top line with Tyler Seguin and he was rewarded 11:15 into the third period when the two combined to score the game-winning goal in a 4-1 victory over Carolina.
Here’s the goal:
With the win, the Stars improved their record to 11-3-0 (only the Montreal Canadiens have more points this season).
