Stars head coach Jim Montgomery handed down another round of discipline to forward Alexander Radulov prior to Dallas’ game against the New York Rangers.
Radulov did not play in Tuesday night’s 1-0 win because he was late for morning skate, but according to teammate Tyler Seguin, the brief suspension Wholesale nhl jerseys
should not be an issue moving forward.
“I think as far as our room, especially right now, we’re strong,” Seguin said during his weekly appearance with BaD Radio on Sportsradio 96.7 FM/1310 The Ticket [KTCK-AM].
“When the coach says something or makes a decision, the leaders back them up, and it kind of filters through the rest of the room. We obviously have team rules, and I’m sure Rads is going to come back next game with a lot of fire and ready to go.”
For Radulov, it was the second form of public discipline he’s received this season. Against the Kings on Jan. 17, Montgomery benched Radulov for the final 10:20 of the first period after the Russian forward talked back to Montgomery.
“He’s a grown man,” Seguin said. “He knows he made a mistake, and that’s it. Case closed. And we don’t have to talk about it anymore.”
Without Radulov on the ice, the Stars’ offense struggled at times against the Rangers, going 0 for 5 on the power play.
“I’m not big on rules,” Montgomery said after Tuesday’s game. “Be on time, be prepared, do the right thing. If you do those things, you’re not going to face any kind of repercussions.”
Radulov and the Stars hit the ice again Thursday night in a pivotal matchup with playoff implications against the Colorado Avalanche.
