It’s not over yet!

The Dallas Stars fail to tie the series at 2-2 in an overtime loss. Once again we can focus on negatives and rule this team out at a chance to win the cup. Bad calls, bad power play, bad last & first minute of the period goals, bad penalty kill… there is a lot we can focus on and get upset about.

Well that escalated quickly… 2-1 Tampa

It felt like the Stars did very little wrong in the first period of game 3, they opportunities that should have given them the lead but couldn’t convert, then 2 mistakes by Stars top D-men, first Miro looses the puck and it’s 1-0 Tampa Bay, then a missed hit by Lindell sees the Stars down by 2.

In my view, a good day at the office, just not the right result. Too many penalties in the first, the officiating did not seem consistent throughout the game, but throughout the periods yes. Everything called in the first, most calls were made in the second and everything goes in the 3rd, but regardless, the Lightning managed to capitalize on their chances and it gave them an early 2-0 lead.

After a rough start to the season, a league best run to finish the 2019 calendar year including a change in Head Coach, a Winter Classic win then a rough end to the regular season. The Stars have managed to pull things back together when it matters most, and that hard work and no quit mentality has earned them some pretty damn nice hardware!
