Their starting goalie is out, so we get very few shots on him. Their top PK defender is out, and we do nothing to get a PP.

Bad news: the Stars were completely dominated
Good news: the Avs only managed one goal

I gotta say, even though we were heavily outplayed, if that’s the best that a motivated Avs team can bring, then I grow more confident in the Stars being able to take them into deeper waters and drowning them LOL.

McKinnon on pace to record 18 shots on goal while playing 25+ minutes.

But there's no way his line can maintain this rhythm the whole game.

PP looked like it really wanted to protect the 1-goal deficit there.

Really keeping the d shifts even. The top four are all young. Let them double shift on occasion.

I missed the goal because I was typing a post criticizing Bones for not putting Miro out on the 5 on 3.

The Stars ignited your advice, but the Stars finally earned some PPs.

I get it. The top unit hasn’t been moving very well tonight, so maybe that’s the ideal place for them.

They are so good at setting up the backdoor shot.

Prolly a good idea to keep giving Mackinnon power plays.

Fedun will finish the period with one shift. When you don’t play PP or PK, you don’t play this period.
