Apparently Vegas had exactly zero second chance shots (shots off a rebound).

That might be why they've only put one puck past a goaltender in the last three games.

There’s an awful lot of snark on the Stars’ twitter for a team that’s incredibly lucky just to be here.

People are acting like LV is some kind of machine. They were barely better than the Stars.

I didn’t even remember that Colorado was better than Vegas during the regular season.

That’s interesting. Thanks for reminding me that this once took place.

They played two more games than we did? No wonder they were tired.

Vegas came into the bubble and were humming early. I swear we can take these guys so long as we dig down and show up and play our game on the boards and in the neutral zone every night. And that’s the real issue with this Stars team, isn’t it? They can when they want to, but they lay back a lot, too. It’s a Jamie Benn and leadership issue. If Benn wants to put on his big boy pants and play hard as hell and set the tone, we win this series. If he doesn’t and he goes low energy and disappears tomorrow, Vegas just needs one pretty play to catch their confidence and roll over us.

Well since we had our bi-annual big boy Benn sighing last game, I’d put my money on the latter.

It is me or Benn was in full 100%-mode for the first 10 minutes of the game, and then faded away along with his new linemates ?

I just heard Razor on The Ticket and he said Benn was in "Beast Mode" at the beginning of the game. My how that term has been redefined over the years.

It now means "throwing one check and actually getting noticed by the broadcasters for a shift."

I got no probs with that last game from Benn and thought he was great. He also probably created the most scoring chances outside the Hintz line.

I *hope* he continues to bring it. Recent history suggests he may not.
