Stars coach Dave Tippett was not pleased after the shootout loss.
He was upset with the fact the Stars had 30 shots that were either blocked or missed the net _ including several by key players on the power play _ and he called out Mark Fistric as a disappointment in the pre-season.
Tippett was asked if the waiver wire pickup of Doug Janik was designed to light a fire under players such as Dan Jancevski and Garrett Stafford, and he answered with this:
"The guy that needs to have a fire lit under him is Fistric. He's been very poor, very poor. He needs to be better. That's a guy where there's just too many errors out there...He's got to be a guy who has the ability to play against the other team's top players, and he's been struggling.''
