Morning Skate: The marathon men 

May, 5, 2008
If you stayed up late watching the Stars-Sharks game, you got to see a really good one. I mean, a really good game. If you didn't, well, too bad. For the record, the Stars eliminated the Sharks with a four-overtime 2-1 win in Dallas.

It was a game that had just about everything, including acrobatic, pressure saves at both ends of the rink. Stoppers Marty Turco and Evgeni Nabokov were both brilliant. Nabokov's stretch-glove save on a Brad Richards' bullet in the first overtime was absolutely ridiculous. The puck might have gone over the goal line, but there was no way to be certain. At the other end, Turco turned back numerous scoring chances.
