Trying to goon it up to get back in the game failed.
I got a ranch in downtown Dallas/I buy diamonds by the ton/Chase cuties in my Cadillac/Drill oil wells just for fun/But when it comes to boots, I need a deal/That will fit me right, toe to heel/So I get my boots at Western Warehouse.

Stars are looking petty out there. Just play the game.

It wasn’t necessary. Don’t need a stupid pass there.

Very strange for Khudobin to try to make a kick save when his glove was right there.

I have no idea what the heck he was doing there (Khudobin that is)

3 goals in a period was doable, but dunno about 4. Bad non-save by Dobby.

This has to be the worst trio of broadcasters going. They step all over each other.

You would think Kenny hates AJ because he starts talking right after she does a lot and then just keeps going.

I'll cut them a little slack since they are in three different locations (in the stands, in the studio and down by the glass).

I think she and Pierre have no chemistry with who should talk, so when Albert leaves a gap and hears nothing, he jut plows ahead.

Certainly doesn’t help, but no one is forcing them to use that terrible setup. Pierre between the benches never adds anything.

I think there’s probably a delay between them which makes them step over each other. You can hear the same thing on the Ticket sometimes when the hosts are in different locations.

Sure, I get the difficulties. It just sounds like he hates her. Probably they only really needed two people anyway with the disjointed nature of it.

For what it’s worth, even in this terrible game, the Stars scored three, which is better than their usual during the season.

What a *poo poo* show.

Now we get the nervous game 6 where we really nervously don’t want to think about a game 7.

Fun.

It's probably easier to take the blame when you are not at your 100%. Players let him down, ok, but looking at his moves and sloth-speed quickness and reactions, he should have remained as unfit to play. The coaching staff made a professional fault on this one.

But again, those crappy games happens, none of these games are looking like each other. One time you lose 8-1, two days later you win 5-0 (true story). Nothing working on your side while the other capitalizes at a 100%-rate, plus the usual classics: Radulov and Perry-like penalties, Klingberg turnover, and you end up with *poo poo*. The last game was on our side, we could have a 5-0 lead as well. Erase that game, and focus on the next one. At least it's a good wake-up call and now they know what will happen if they are aware of that, Colorado is in the same exact position, with the exception that it will be a game 7 for the Stars as well.

Can’t know, but the decision to start Bishop may have irritated some players. These guys have become a team, and that was disrupted without merit.
