About time. Been waiting to get the dead weight off the Seguin/Radulov line and add Janmark up there.

Hitch has tried keeping Radulov and Benn together, but that produced nothing.

This team plays on the boards way to much, and every time they play 2 stars against 3 of the other team. You can't score goals with the puck frozen on the boards.

It doesn’t seem like they’re creating any turnovers on the forecheck or in the neutral zone. As a consequence they have to go the entire length of the ice to generate offense and... they look clumsy doing it. No flow to their game.

Team are going to make you earn the middle of the ice. Good teams, that is. Ottawa was fine letting the Stars go where they pleased.

Also, the dump and chase depends on you winning races and puck battles. If you don’t, it’s the hockey equivalent of a punt. The Stars are in a bad way offensively where they’re getting no chances skating up on the rush and aren’t getting many from their dump and chase. It’s largely like they kill time while waiting for their next power play.

This bit of burst right now shows some of their problems. We’ve had several guys throwing the puck into traffic in front of the net, but those aren’t real scoring chances.

The only line that can even vaguely pretend to maintain puck possession and get a cycle going is the Dickinson / Smith line.

I wonder how Nill “likes this team” now without adding some cheap secondary scoring.

We might as well been sellers at the deadline, like the Blues. This team faked their way through their easy schedule and made Nill think everything would be ok. Now this team plays good teams and it proves they aren't good at all.

They all look like they’re playing drunk on this PP.

Let’s.. uh... let’s not boo the ref for stopping play when a guy is on the ice bleeding into his hands.

Need to teach Johns a better poker face. Don’t look guilty right away.

I guess it doesn't matter what it looks like as long as you win.

I like how went they went from dump-and-punt to loading up the top line, the offense instantly improved.

Literally no one could have predicted that.

Hard fought two points, which we needed! Thank you.

Always good to see Ralphie. No surprise his favorite Stars player is Zubov. And the Pope-ettes.
