DALLAS -- While Adam Cracknell is one of the newcomers for the Dallas Stars, he knew Antoine Roussel wanted the puck. Joe Mixon Jersey .Roussel scored the tie-breaking goal on the next shift, and only 22 seconds after Andrew Coglianos second goal for Anaheim had tied the season opener early in the third period, and Dallas went on to a 4-2 victory over the Ducks on Thursday night.Rous made a good yell, I knew he was backdoor, and I just whacked it over there, and hes a guy thats going to work hard for that puck, Cracknell said. And he puts it in ... and we get that lead right back.Cracknell later scored a goal that included a secondary assist from Roussel on the Stars third line.If you look at the scoresheet tonight, it was some of their foot soldiers, Anaheim coach Randy Carlyle said.Lauri Korpikoski, another newcomer, and Stephen Johns also scored for the Stars, and Antti Niemen stopped 33 shots -- 16 in a strange first period.Antti was excellent, coach Lindy Ruff said. That first period, we had some bad decisions, gave up some odd-numbered rushes, made some uncommon bad decisions, gave up three 2-on-1s where he made real good saves.Anaheim finished the first period with a 17-1 shots on goal advantage, and spent 8 minutes on the power play. But the game was tied 1-1 with Johns scoring on Dallas only shot before Cogliano had a short-handed goal.They came out flying. I think we were just a little too wound up, all pretty juiced up and excited, Johns said. In the second and third, we settled down and played our system and got back to the way we know how to play.Cogliano had a breakaway after an open-ice turnover by Jason Spezza, and scored on the rebound after his initial shot ricocheted off Niemi.I got lucky. ... I kind of knew he wanted to go across the ice, I got a stick on it and made a shot and was able to pick up the rebound, Cogliano said.Ducks goalie John Gibson had 16 saves in the opener matching the Western Conferences two defending division champions.The Stars had a conference-high 109 points while winning the Central Division before losing in the second round of the playoffs to the St. Louis Blues. Anaheim was the Pacific Division champs, but went back to a familiar coach after being ousted in the first round by Nashville.Carlyle, who led the Ducks to their only Stanley Cup title in 2007, replaced Bruce Boudreau nearly five years after being fired.They scored three goals right from in tight. So we were lax on that coverage. And we were 0 for 5 on our power play, Carlyle said after his first game back. These are the frustrating ones, when you work hard and you do the things that can give yourself a chance, and then youre lax in the area where you cant be lax.Game notes The Stars are sticking with their two-goalie system. Niemi got the starting nod in the opener over Kari Lehtonen. Before the Stars lost in the second round of the playoffs to the St. Louis Blues, both won 25 games last regular season. ... On the helmets of Stars players were decals representing the badges of five officers slain in downtown Dallas this summer. Family members of two of the officers participated in the pregame ceremonial puck drop. The arena is only a few blocks from where the officers were shot by a lone gunman on July 7. ... Korpikoski just joined the Stars on Monday, when the eight-year NHL veteran signed a $1 million, one-year contract after being released from his professional tryout with the Calgary Flames. ... The Stars started the season with forwards Ales Hemsky (groin), Cody Eakin (knee) and Mattias Janmark (knee) on injured reserve.UP NEXTDucks: Continue their season-opening five-game road trip at Pittsburgh on Saturday.Stars: Play at Colorado on Saturday night. Jake Elliott Youth Jersey . The Oilers come in having lost five in a row (0-4-1) and 16 of their last 20 games, dropping a 2-1 decision to the Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday. John Ross Jersey . -- Jimmie Johnson held off a teammate, passed a pair of Hall of Famers, and dominated once more at Dover. http://www.nflbengalsgearofficial.com/joe-mixon-jersey/ . Roman Josi had a goal and an assist to lead the Predators to a 4-1 victory over the Dallas Stars on Monday night. Former India captain Rahul Dravid has said T20 is a complicated game that is not easy to decode. He is of the opinion that tactics in the format, especially in terms of squad building in the IPL, have sharpened to a point that the depth of conversations taking place in the franchises in recent years was not happening anywhere else.Dravid was reflecting on the evolution of T20 cricket on ESPNcricinfo Talking Cricket, a new, in-depth, interview-based show that begins airing on SONY ESPN on Friday. His experience in the format spans all nine seasons of the IPL and ranges from being a player and captain for Royal Challengers Bangalore and Rajasthan Royals to being a mentor for Royals and Delhi Daredevils.Some of the conversations that happen around IPL teams ... these conversations are not happening outside, Dravid said about the strategy involved in team building. They are not happening in television studios as I have been on television studios, I know it. The depth of conversation thats happening about the T20 game within a team and within that environment is not happening anywhere else, which is what makes the T20 game unique.I wouldnt say there is no knowledge outside but there is not as much knowledge, I feel, and there are people wholl make comments like, Why is he doing this? Why is he doing that? without actually understanding the dynamics of why it happens, what happens inside.From being heavily skewed in favour of big-ticket international players, Dravid says teams have started to do their due diligence on Indian domestic talent, as evidenced by the most recent auction where Pawan Negi, M Ashwin and Krunal Pandya attracted huge bids.There is a lot more research being done. There is a lot more knowledge about young Indian domestic talent than there was say three or four years ago, Dravid said. Suddenly, everyone has access to a lot of these young Indian domestic talents ... and every team comes really well prepared to the auction. Its very rare to find young Indian talents that are unheard of and you can pick out of nowhere for really cheap.Dravid believed that the increased knowledge was a result of the Indian uncapped players being included in the player auction in recent years, as opposed to franchises being able to sign them outside the auction in earlier seasons. In the past maybe teams didnt focus that much on young Indian domestic talent because they could either go and get them outside the auction and they could keeep them and the whole auction was based around the international players, so there wasnt that much research in that sense needed. Jake Elliott Bengals Jersey. But I think today most teams recognize that you need domestic talent, and all the talent is in the auction.The nature of the auction was unpredictable and fluid, Dravid said, an environment in which a single competitor for a player could force a change in plans. A lot of times I have gone into auctions and said, Okay, well get this player cheap because not many know him. All it requires is one other team to value that player and have money to spend and, you know, you could end up losing him because you cant match up in the auction.A good example of this years auction would be someone like Carlos Brathwaite. Who would have thought that he would go for the price [INR 4.2 crore] he did, but obviously KKR [Kolkata Knight Riders], who have a team in the CPL [Trinbago Knight Riders], knew about him as much as the people who are looking at the Delhi team knew about him. I think auctions are quite dynamic and they sort of vary all the time. Everyone goes in with a strategy, everyone goes in with tactics, everyone goes in with certain ideas but you have got to think on your feet.While admitting that managing a team in which some players have substantially bigger price tags than others was challenging, Dravid said the the harder task was to ensure playing time for everyone in a large squad.Sometimes players also may not understand the dynamic of an auction, they dont understand why certain players have gone for so much money and why someone else has gone for such less, he said. Players are getting better at it. They are also beginning to understand that sometimes the dynamics of an auction are quite unique ...The challenges in the IPL are more around playing time and players in the playing XI. I think thats one of the big challenges because you have squads of 23, 24, 25 and only 11 can play. You have only four foreigners who can play at any given point of time so that sometimes has more of an effect on a team than money. I think after some time, at least to the coaches and to the mentors, I dont think people bring up the money issue so much, at least thats my experience.Watch ESPNcricinfo Talking Cricket with Rahul Dravid at 9.30 pm (IST) on July 8 (Friday) on SONYESPN Wholesale NFL Jerseys Wholesale Nike NFL JerseysNFL Jerseys From China Cheap Nike Basketball Jerseys Wholesale Hockey Jerseys China Nike Baseball Jerseys Cheap College Jerseys China Cheap Football JerseysWholesale Jerseys Canada Wholesale NHL Jerseys Canada Wholesale Nike MLB Jerseys Canada Cheap NBA Jerseys Authentic Canada Stitched Soccer Jerseys CanadaCheap Jerseys Canada NFL ' ' ' China Cheap Football Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Canada Wholesale NHL Jerseys Canada Wholesale Nike MLB Jerseys Canada Cheap NBA Jerseys Authentic Canada Stitched Soccer Jerseys Canada Cheap Jerseys Canada NFL ' ' '
