I was mostly resigned to the fact that the Stars were going to make the playoffs, but blow your final game in hand tonight, and it's back to a tossup.

Is there anyone who legitimately thinks that missing the playoffs and cleaning house would not be the best long-term option here?

Yes, that would not be bad but I'm rooting for a playoff berth following by a first round ass-whopping that could also lead to a house cleaning.

I think the problem with that is that simply making the playoffs for this team would get a small "Mission Accomplished" banner.

I don't think the Stars squeaking into the playoffs keeps Bowness around. Some national hockey media dude said he thinks Bowness will retire after the season no matter what.

I get it. It doesn't look like Bowness is enjoying this job. No coach ever sounds happy, but he's sounded especially frustrated with how he talks about the team. Some coaches like Torts are jerks, but that's not Bowness. He's been prickly this season, and that's not him. He's been a bit defensive when asked about lineup decisions. After losses this season, he's blamed the players more than he ever did the prior two seasons. The team was *poo poo* last season, but he handled it better. I guess maybe the expectations for this season ramped up the stress as well.

And he's not a good head coach. I think that's been exposed more, and probably gotten to him.

Eh, cleaning house is not gonna do anything to relieve the team of 2 huge underperforming contracts. Maybe another coach gets a little more out of this group, but without $ or contracts to trade, no make over in sight. I'm sure every player knows this as well.

Well it took until game 78, but for the first time this season I think I'll watch or do something else tonight.

Bowness has agreed to Zelensky's request to sanction Russia. Radulov and Gurianov are scratched.

The Stars game is also on a Bally's alternate.

If you like penalties, this is the game for you.

A little bit, but they also promoted Lindell to the top PP unit.

I hope the refs call just a metric fuckton of *poo poo* penalties until we get to the legendary 2-vs-2.

Like the gool ol' NES Ice Hockey. In this case, Bowness should go with one fat guy and one skinny guy.

I think a second too many men penalty in a game should result in the coach being sent to the room for the rest of the period.

Good strategy of the Flames to take penalties on purpose for too many men on ice given the hideous Stars PP.

I think Miro has tried to dangle his way into the zone four times on the PP and has turned it over overly time.

Give a better team a bunch of PPs, and they’ll eventually score.

It's difficult for Suter. Got caught several times like a rookie where the Flames scored goals stopped by Öttinger.

Vancouver lost, so they’re probably out of the race.
