what a brutal sport and playoffs.

So when we went to OT, I made a deal with God, Allah, Jesus, Yahweh, Quazicoatl, etc that if the Stars score I won't ask Her/Him/It for anything in the next round.

so sorry about that. don't have that in my back pocket any more.

Luck is such a critical element in any team going far. Need injury luck more than anything.

I guess Nill gets tenure now that we are second round champions.

I have this habit of instantly losing respect for any team we can regularly score against.

Oh *we* scored against them? They obviously suck.

We regularly scored against their backup and third string goalie.

Yeah I dunno. I dispute that the Avs had a #1 goalie to lose. We scored 3 goals on that guy in 15 minutes before he managed to injure himself making an athletic save. There’s nothing special about that guy . The Avs goalies are mainly interchangeable with no standouts. Francouz played the same amount this season and had the better stats. I think he is probably actually better.

We also played 6 of the 7 seven games with our own backup goalie.

Jesus, the Stars just made it to the conference finals but couldn't tell that from reading this thread. Part of it is our typical nutkicking, I know, but if you can't find at least a little joy in the moment why the hell are you even watching the games?

Smile! Have a cocktail and enjoy the fact the Stars are somehow one of the last four teams standing in one of the absolutely batshit craziest seasons ever!

To keep it all about the hero, it's worth thinking about how all of his goals were awesome. One was a deflection, and the other two were him shooting up high. Awesome to see these quality goals.

They were. I kept thinking it had to be luck. Those were great goals.

On the first deflection he was even almost tied up.

A lot of it is a defense mechanism. Also harder to be funny about positive things. I'm very happy but very nervous.

And for the flashbacks, make it every time Heiskanen broke up a pass or shot.

My favorite thing about Joel Kiviranta is how he scored three goals in an elimination game against the Colorado Avalanche.

Two straight Game 7 losses? Sounds like they need to clean house in Colorado. Starting with "No Show" MacKinnon.

Yeah, even a washed up spare like Jamie Benn didn’t manage to lose two game 7s in a row.

For all the *poo poo* we've given the PP this season, our PP outscored Colorado's 9-4, despite having only 24 penalties to Colorado's 34.
