07:32 AM ET 11.04 | Drastic times call for drastic measures, and that's where Dallas Stars coach Lindy Ruff, who benefitted from teenager Valeri Nichushkin's first NHL goal Sunday, finds himself these days with another one of his young stars. [Ruff] tried to balance his scoring by splitting Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn for the first part of the game Sunday. But Ruff put Seguin and Benn back together because Seguin couldn't win a faceoff. He ended the game winning 1-of-14 (7 percent). "The compete on that has to be a lot stronger; scratch your nose on the ice if you have to," Ruff said. "You're going to have to get low, you're going to have to get stronger, you're going to have to get kicked out a few times. It's a form of competing. .. Get mad."

Loved the one quote about Lindy Ruff -- when he played home games he played like a Ruff. On the road he played like a Lindy.
