IF IT'S POSSIBLE TO LOSE A GAME TWICE, THE STARS JUST DID
That 4-3 OT loss to the Ducks was absolutely soul-crushing for your loyalists, especially those that got to witness it live at AAC.
Seriously? You can't lock down a game in the final minute when your facing a team you're embroiled in mortal playoff-race combat with, in the conclusion of an excruciatingly pedestrian seven game home stand, with just 10 games to go in the regular season, and with the reality of the next 5 games being played on the road staring you right in the face?
Coach. Goalie. Veterans. Everybody?!
Whatever the play was set to be if you won the draw on that final face-off it either didn't work or wasn't executed properly. (Jamie Benn, where were you going?) And while we're forensically disassembling the post- timeout play; why was Loui Eriksson, the team's best defensive forward, on the bench - just as he was in Anaheim when this same horror movie was first run? Huh? Riddle me that?
Lord thundering cripes that was emotionally disemboweling.
Oh and by the way, in case you're keeping track at home, the Stars record in games Adam Burish doesn't play now stands at 2-10-2.
Drink milk Adam, drink milk - and hit that hyperbaric chamber hard cause this crew needs you back sooner, not later.
