Is it just me, or does this female announcer sound like she was vaccinated as a child?

All the play is in our end, but it's all perimeter. The Stars have become good at locking games down.

It's a terrible crew. She's Jason Witten bad. She sounds like a former player doing it for the first time. Her play by play guy calls the game like he's a one man booth, largely ignoring her and having no conversations. Of course, Pierre is all about Pierre.

I think the female announcer is that Kendall Coyne or whatever the spelling who skated at the All Star game. I guess they're trying to give her a shot, which is admirable. Unfortunately, she needs more practice.

It is her. Hockey skill doesn’t translate to broadcasting skill.

I'm going to guess Robert Thomas was conceived in the parking lot of a Matchbox Twenty show.

Geez, Stars are really scrambly in their end all of a sudden. Lock that *poo poo* down.

It's weird seeing Steve Ott as a coach. I always thought he was a moron and would never hire him as a coach for my team.

Ok, I think the play by play nickname needs to be Dead Air.

This third period was nowhere near as tense as game two.

Nice.

If you had told at the start of the playoffs me we'd have at least 6 or 7 home games, I think I would've been very happy.

St. Louis is still scary good at cycling and somehow generating chances out of it.

Why do they always interview Benn?

Crowd was loud b/c I was in the house. I also saw Scuba. It took him about 20 seconds to recognize me.

In my defense, I never thought you were actually a Stars fan, so seeing you at a game took a little while to process.

Last night was Kendall Coyne. AJ was on the prior broadcasts.

Much better game all around. Better effort, play and much better ice. Even when the Blues scored 1st, the Stars continued to control the play. Hanley was very good too.

AJ is fine except she seems to always take the Blues side of things. Maybe she's just more familiar with that team. But otherwise I think she does a good job. Kendall needs practice. She might have some good insights, but there was no confidence in her delivery.
