Back-to-back game, Stars seem align to finally drop one.

Most likely since we have a friendly beer and pizza wager on this one.

Gosh, I didn't realize it was more than beer and pizza on the line. Apparently history is also on the line.

This one's on national TV? No way we come out of this with any points.

Definitely. I hope we get routed 9-1 so the whole continent sees at which point we suck. Everybody's going to severely underestimate the Stars and, as a result, we will be en route to another endless winning streak.

This play by play guy sounds like he’s continually calling the back stretch of a horse race.

Klingberg went on a bit of an adventure there instead of playing his position.

Haha. Dowling is scratched tonight. He keeps referring to Dickinson as Dowling. Not saying I blame him, I can barely tell the difference either.

Pavelski for the first home run of the game, from the crease...

The number of shots from distance is way up. Need to start getting more from in closer.

More and more, seems like those kinda typical Hawks games where Crawford stops everything.

Faksa needs to bury one of these shots he's getting right in the slot.

This is a mulligan game. Nobody is going to bat an eye if they lose. So if they can dig deep in the 3rd and pull points out of this one after a pretty lax first two periods, I'd look up from the newspaper.

That was a really fun second. These announcers are so awful that I switched to a french feed.
That Hanzal's so hurt right now.

The Hawks are playing pretty bad, and the Stars are playing very loose. Makes for a lot of quality chances.

Félix Seguin freaks me out when there's big scoring chances, but Cheney is really great at the description. Plus, he's in love with Hintz and Heiskanen.

I was home for a bit during the Blues series and his praise of them (especially Miro) made me forget about how méchants les mardis used to be in QC.

Khudobin only able to do so much. He’s flopped around a lot this game, and it burned him there.

He was the only player in white even trying to move on that play. Everyone else just kind of watched it pinball around and then shrugged and gave Kane 30 seconds to dust it off and fire it at the goal.

The Hawks played at their level whereas the Stars weren't really willing to hurt themselves, being sloppy most of the time. No real conviction in the offense, relying mainly on shots from far, hoping for some deflections and luck, no more, and when they were in good position, the bad choice was systematically made: passing instead of shooting. Some rare flashes, but nothing decent nor really serious.

Khubodin was great, I also liked Oleksiak, especially when he smoked Kane in a counter-attack in the third. Pavelski was damn awful and useless.

So much for history. The Stars played pretty well, but eventually the tired caught up. Can’t be too unhappy with 14-1-1.
