Ritchie and Fedun are scratched.
In comes Nichushkin and Oleksiak.

Don't know why Lovejoy plays over Fedun. Fedun is actually decently productive.

I'm OK with scratching Ritchie, I'll just yell at Val instead. Same diff.

They both suck and shouldn't play. Zuccarello can't get healthy fast enough.

This. Those two periods gave me the biggest case of blue balls ever.

This is the Stars' game in hand on all these teams in the western conf cluster and if they play down to the Eichel-less, losers of 4 straight and 10 of 12 Buffalo Sabres, season over. Not to be too dramatic.

As long as Miro outshines Dahlin in the head-to-head's, I'm good.

How many turnovers can Comeau commit in one shift?

Bishop and the team defense is playing so great. Buffalo barely had any chances.

Arizona beat the Blues too, so now we're just two points out of 3rd (and 2 points up on AZ, but still).

We have an extra game, though. Also, this playoff format continues to suck.

This is the most Roman Polak play ever. Leaves his guy to go cover someone who is already covered and in a non-dangerous position, his guy gets a wide-open look at the net, but then inexplicably decides to do some really stupid fancy *poo poo* instead of scoring. Polak continues to Be A Warrior/Veteran Leader/Voice In The Room, despite sucking ass at actual defense.

No D man is gonna be perfect, not even Klingberg, Miro or Lindell. For what Polak is, he's been very good for the Stars. He's not even a minus on a middling team with a barely positive goal differential. He especially excels at the PK, which is top 5 in the league.

I don't get the Polak hate. He's fine, he's just been Robidas'ed up the lineup too far.

I know it’s weird to say when your team has given up two goals in the last four games, but I feel like Klingberg has actually been pretty bad the last 5-6 games. I wonder if his injury is lingering.

Polak was never supposed to be more than a #7. He has been a pleasant surprise this year if anything.

That's how I see it. With Johns and Methot out, Polak got promoted above his pay grade to be on the top PK unit and second pair.

I mean, what were the other options? Overplay your
awesome rookiee even more than you already are? Give Honka a bunch of minutes?

We'll see if he's still "fine" when Monty puts him up against the Preds' top line and Polak Kris Russells us right out of the playoffs.

How many Polaks does it take to lose in the playoffs?

I don’t think you can fairly evaluate Russell when Kari was the goalie. And on the flip side, I’m not sure you can fairly evaluate Polak if Bishop isn’t going to concede a goal the rest of the season.
