A win here will get us closer to missing the playoffs by one point.

I can't wait till we win the offseason championship again. Everyone knows that's the most important one.

These wins will only work to sell the team as being one Hanzal injury away from a Cup run.

Hitch is saying he plans to start Kari the rest of the way and will continue to favor vets over young players. His goal is to win games.

Also, Johns and Bishop are done for the season.

He will crack the top 10 in all time coaching losses early next season if he sticks around.

If this is what Hitch gets out of these guys when he makes a point about wanting to win these games, I think it says a lot about how well his message is getting through. The Stars can’t do anything with the puck. They look sloppy and only mildly interested.

Of course McKenna is going to play well, just to make us think what if?

I just realized that McKenna is 34 yrs old. I thought he was younger.

After looking pretty pathetic for two periods, the Stars poured it on for about a ten minute stretch of the third. Lots of offensive zone time.

Uh, Razor... don’t call Gomel Smith the smokey one.

Forget missing the playoffs by one point. If they hunker down and really give another solid ten minutes of effort per game, they could end up missing the playoffs by a tiebreaker instead!

Then end up with the 15th pick, only to watch the 13th or 14th team move up in the lottery.

Jamie Benn is officially on my nerves. What the *f-bomb* man? Why did he suddenly show up if he's so injured?!?

I don't think him having the hat-trick he did has much to do with injury or not. The goals he scored were not physical. These goals were all hand-eye skill-based goals. His hands certainly are still fine even if he's not running people over the same way he used to.

It's always nice to beat SJ, especially watching them give up 4 goals and blowing a 2 goal lead. Good for McKenna, the Stars didn't give him much help until the 3rd.

Hitch said McKenna earned himself another start. Make it two. I hope the weak goal Kari gave up is the last we see in a Stars jersey.

Kari was a pretty good back up this season. But when forced into the #1 position after the Bishop injury, he couldn't keep it up. While he is probably a good option for a back up next season, he needs to be let go. Even if it means signing a less able goalie.

I would rather see ANY OTHER GOALTENDER (except for Niemi) than Kari as the backup next year. I don't care if their stats are worse. Just anything not named Lehtoniemi.
