Holy cow. Great work by Lindell but what the *f-bomb* was Colorado doing there?

Lindell given all day to out the puck in. Thanks for diving to the ice, Girard.

Yeah, you take those lucky goals when you can. What's weird is that the Stars barely scored any like that all season long.

The goal cam shows half the problem is the goalie losing track of where he is and hookng his right leg on the post.

If you don't have a look that's a goal based on the call on the ice.

We can pin the ears back and lay the wood. We just need to be in a hole to do it. C’est la vie.

There you go. Setting up shop in Colorado’s head now. Just like Calgary, I will be just fine with a fanbase telling themselves they were the better team and should have beat us as they are packing their sweaters into the trunk for the offseason.

Expect Avs top line to play approx. 19'53" in the third.

Oh yeah, he totally glanced over and saw Stone Hands in the slot and decided to shoot it himself.

NBC botched this. Sportsnet found the goal.

Imagine if the Stars has actually scored 3 or 4 goals a game regularly over the season. That would have radically changed the thoughts on this team.

"Fortuitous Bounce" is going to be the title of this team's championship video.

If you’re going to dump it in, get it last the *fargin'* defenders.

Nice game by Dallas. 16 minutes of power play time for Colorado including 1 minute of 5-3 and they only had two goals.

Colorado almost spent a periods-worth of time on the PP.

Can’t believe Sekera responded to a terrible start to the playoffs by being a rock solid PKer.

I want a measurement on the longest goal ever scored. That was from the boards behind the net.

Brilliant coaching by Bowness.

Also, MacKinnon with just one shot on goal after Pavelski Tkachuked him.

I’m going to be honest with you all. I did not see us being up a comfortable 2-0 at this point.

Colorado is going to have to start thinking about breaking up their top line. They are not generating even strength pressure.
