The thing I keep seeing is that when the Stars are in a place where they need to amp it up or buckle down, they just fall apart.
The other thing I'm seeing is Hitch being stubborn about his lineup. He won't try the other goalie. He's going all in on his vets when it comes to who plays and who gets the ice time. Hitch is desperately trying to find a win by continuing to do the exact same things he did to see the team lose eight straight.
Kari is going to play out the season. Young guys like Dickinson, Honka, and Smith won't see any opportunities.
