With no pressure but certainly with something to prove, goalie Jack Campbell took the ice for what could be his final game in a Stars uniform this past weekend. The Jack Campbell that we have seen flashes of in Cedar Park for years was fully on display.

Campbell stopped 32 of 33 in a game that was statistically meaningless for the Texas Stars. It was more important personally for Campbell, as he has struggled this season and was able to put an exclamation point on an otherwise forgettable season.

Aside from a slight hiccup in the third period, Campbell was perfect. It wasn't the sort of game that any goaltender could have won. Texas had big defensive lapses in the first period and needed a steady hand. They found that for the night in Campbell, which is why he is the player of the week.
