Bishop ended up way too far to his right.

Not the greatest idea putting Bishop in today.

Maybe the whole thing with playing cute to hide Bishop’s status also meant Bishop didn’t get enough work in practices or warmups.

Stars are just reaching for pucks everywhere and not getting to them. And another goal against. *f-bomb* me they're playing terribly.

Beat by a backhander like it was 1982. My god.

Ok I get it: let them win 12-1 so that they became overconfident and we pound them by surprise in game 6. The problem is that this strategy is a bit too obvious.

The grizzled veteran team sure looks gassed on this back to back.

I stand by an earlier statement that the Stars win in spite of Bowness. What a terrible coaching decision.

Does Jamie wait until 6-0 or 7-0 to pick his meaningless fight with a random colorado player?

I’d put Bishop back in after the intermission. With game six only two days away, let’s try to get a rested Khudobin.

Yeah, if you leave Bishop in for 4-0 you should have left him in to get smoked and let Dobby rest

Well once they got to 5-0 it was really for sure over. Maybe they couldn't come back from 4 goals down. Maybe.

Taking a stupid penalty with one second left in the period. Great awareness of the situation, Janmark.

Be fair even Kari didn’t give up goals when he faced no shots.

Benn-Seguin-Radulov were benched for the last half of the period.

That period was one of the most embarrassing periods of hockey I have seen the Stars throw out there in 25 years.

Getting crushed is not a problem itself. *poo poo* happens, it's a day off in parallel to the stupid decision to put Bishop in. The real problem is everytime this team is fully aware that the opponent will come *fargin'* strong from the very first second and they really should be ready, they aren't.

Miro should be able to score six while also taking over as goalie.
