He’s been fantastic the past few weeks. He’s been much more aggressive with his shots and passes. Great to see. I hope he keeps it up.
Would you say it’s almost like a huge jump for him over last year?
Yes, but even his play lately has been a huge jump over the first half of the season.

Would have been nice if a young top-pair defenseman on a very team-friendly contract had been available.
The Lundkvist trade pretty much eliminated that option.

What is the *fargin'* deal with our first line only ever having a good shift after giving up a lead?

It didn’t have to if Nill wasn’t a coward.

A problem with Seguin and Marchment being hurt is the Stars don’t really have the cap space to call up Harley to see what he has. If DeBoer is done with Lundkvist, you’d like to see Harley get a look before they run out of regular season.

With Hakanpää on the scoresheet, we can definitely not lose this one.

Let’s get an undeserved point. I honestly think that Calgary has again been the better team, but it would be nice.

Quick recall for Stars players: we are NOT trailing. I repeat, we are NOT trailing.

Not sure what’s going on recently, but it feels like just about any team can hold the puck in our zone for hugely long periods of time. And often it leads to goals.

Our transition used to be so crisp, but it feels sluggish recently.

They looked good in the first period, but the energy certainly waned as the game went along. I know it’s been a long road trip, but it sure is rough pointing to fatigue three games in a row.

I have to be careful in this thread because Knives is so far ahead of the Bally broadcast.

Gotta be some other element to it as well. When they gave up the lead, all of a sudden they finally had some good shifts again.

Calgary should’ve won that game by about 5 goals.

I am watching on Ballys (cable) and about the same speed as Knives. I’ve noticed this every game though that others are behind me. Might be other factors.

Markstrom really wanted the weakest goalie interference call of all time? Okay then LOL.

Markström asking for goalie interference? This is not soccer...
