Goalie Matt Climie began the season making history for the Texas Stars, and he hopes to end it the same way.
That’s the easy part. The bigger challenge is not getting a chance to put your name in the record books at all.
“I think it’s harder to watch a game from the bench than when you are actually playing,” he said. “When you are playing, you are a factor. You get on the ice, you get in a zone out there.”
Climie has made that type of neighborhood his home the past couple weeks. As a result, the first-year Stars have moved into the high-rent district of the American Hockey League with a Calder Cup Finals date against defending champion Hershey.
