Razor with the return from break line of the year when they showed three balding fans in their late 30s, and Razor said, “I bet all three of these guys had a full head of hair in 1993.”

That goal Toronto scored was pretty slick, although the defensive coverage reminded me a lot of last year.

Not much in the way of offense by either team.

Spezza’s minimal on a puck might as well be credited as an assist on Hyman’s goal.

Yeah, there was an awful lot of give up there before he started his halfhearted backcheck.

I’ve seen this game before. The Stars are going to dick around for the rest of this period. They’ll then score about 12 minutes into the third. Then with about five minutes left, they’ll begin the too little too late flurry. End result will be 4-1 after the Leafs score a late empty netter.

I saw a Ron Tugnutt jersey tonight. Who the *f-bomb* owns a Ron Tugnutt Stars jersey?

I almost decided to go to this game. But that for sure would have made the Leafs lose. So instead I'm watching from a bar. The last three hockey games I've watched were my 10 year old nephew's team. This is considerably faster.

They looked like dogshit coming out of the gates. It's like they spent the last two days reading their press clippings and thinking two blowout wins over the two shittiest Eastern Conference doormats made them Cup contenders.

Spezza needs another healthy scratch.

I guess that guy on nhl.com that said Klingberg wouldn't even make his top-5 Norris candidates (because he only plays a minute a game on the PK, and because a 9-point lead over the #2 guy is not all that impressive) was right.

Also, Patryen and Heatherington looked really bad today.

They sure did. But really the whole defense looked bad. I saw Lindell make some bad plays for sure.

I find it very suspicious that Jonny shows back up just as these rental bikes are infecting our city.

Klingberg had some awesome passes, but he was also on the ice for at least one ugly goal against. He only gets about six games to impress the snobby and racist Canadian media. He has not shot at a Norris if he saves his bets outings for games against American teams.

This was eerily close. What cryptocurrency should I buy next?

I'm pretty sure Spezza is done. Very reminiscent of Andreychuk at the end.

Clearly he is. Looks like an old man out there.

Where o’ where can the stars find a 2nd line pivot?

Wasn't Andrechuyk like 80 when he finally won the Cup? I thought he lasted a pretty long time (speed was never his game, which helps).

Yeah. But, he won the cup in 04 with the Lightning before the "New NHL" was ushered in. The increase in speed made him stick out like a sore thumb in 05-06 after the lockout. I think he was 41 or so when he retired. So, he was a bit older than Spezza.

But, Spezza seems to be trending in that direction quickly. He sticks out like a sore thumb to me when he is out there.

We should remember Spezza had back problems for years with the Sens. He's had them flare up a few times here. It may be a factor.
