Stars to continue wearing Lehtinen's yellow skate laces

Team is undefeated since debuting new boot ties Friday

If you're trying to figure out the Dallas Stars recent success, look no further than their skate laces.

With their win against the Vegas Golden Knights on Tuesday, the Stars improved to 2-0 while wearing yellow laces and they are going to let it ride as folks in Vegas might say.

The Stars first donned the laces Friday on Jere Lehtinen's number-retirement night. Lehtinen wore yellow ties for much of his 14-season, 875-game tenure in Dallas, and the Stars defeated the Calgary Flames 6-4.

They kept with the trend at T-Mobile Arena, where the Golden Knights had won nine of their first home games, but the glorious boot ties paid off yet again as the Stars won 3-0 thanks in part to Radek Faksa's hat trick.

Hockey players are a superstitious lot, so we should expect to see the yellow laces as long as the Stars are winning.
