Jake Oettinger talks 41 Save Performance & Proof Stars Can “Beat Anyone” With “Any Lineup”
Watch as Stars goalie Jake Oettinger recaps huge win against Carolina Hurricanes.
Oettinger spoke on his excitement for getting the starting nod.
“The position I’m in is that you gotta be ready for anything, especially this year. Whenever I get the chance to play I’m super excited and happy. Just trying to make the most of every start that I get. I was really excited to have my name called.”
Oettinger also expressed the impact of the Stars coming through for a win against Carolina.
“It was huge”, Oettinger said. “They’re a great team. They have everything you want – a lot of skill, a lot of tough guys, a lot of great defensemen. Top to bottom, they’re a great team. For us to come in here injured and beaten up and show we can beat anyone no matter who’s in our lineup, is a testament to how deep we are, and how great of a team we have.”
Oettinger picked up 41 saves against the Hurricanes offense.
“I love to play against the best players in the world, and I think they have some of those guys over there. To go out there and have fun and compete, and measure where I’m at is always super fun, especially against a team like that.”
