But why the *f-bomb* didn't Benn shoot the *Dang ol'* puck. They were two options: between the legs or the short angle above the shoulder.

Uhh maybe don't run four forwards on the powerplay when you are trying to hang on to a one goal lead and can't stop giving up shorties.

When it was Benn and Pavelski on the point for a bit, I was worried.

Stars aren’t going to make the final minute(s) easy on us. As is tradition.

Calgary's top line gives them so little.

Oleksiak for president. He clearly saved Stars' questionable coaching in the final minute (putting Seguin for the face-off twice as he's been sucking all game) and Cogliano's brain cramp.

I posted last year that this was one of those Todd was right about. He wound up turning into an absolute mensch.

If the Islanders and the Bruins finish the job, we may have a decent time for Thursday's game

They're getting stronger, and khodobin didn't give up a Dobby goal. Finish them on Thursday.

Chicago goes down. Vegas and Colorado look like steamrollers.

From the highlights, it looks like Duncan Keith covered exactly zero Knights on those four Vegas goals.

The last time we were up 3-2 in a series we lost the series.

Yeah but we are 0-0 in a series played in a hub city where we have a 3-2 lead. So technically it's not a losing record in that situation.

Don't you worry, the secret sauce for those teams is stifling defense and an anemic offense. We have them right where we want them.
