I don't think anyone from management is getting fired, nor should they be. But they do need to make some hard player decisions.

Man, I've never felt embarrassed to be a Stars fan before. I don't like it.

Yeah, totally embarassing to be a fan of a top four team. Much prefer the days when they went out in five in the first round to the seventh seed.

I'm a little embarrassed that I threw some food on my floor last night in protest and then my wife gave me a misconduct.

I'm not gonna lie. Things escalated and we had to end the session 26 seconds prematurely.

Man, come on here. This *poo poo* happens in every sport every season. It's not like they shived the ref on his way to the hotel.

I’m not really sure why the fans were going after the refs. There were no bad calls against the stars. They should’ve been throwing things at the home team bench.

Because inside the building most people had no idea what happened. The AAC doesn't show replays of penalties so people thought Benn just knocked him down or Domi just threw a hit. It was just a steady stream of calls against the Stars with a lot of blatant trips and hooks by the Knights uncalled.

This team has had some bad moments when losing games with running around taking stupid misconducts late in games. Maybe that's Benn's leadership coming through not handling losing well.

Benn will get a 1-game suspension and I hope the Stars will lose 8-0 on Thursday.

My bar has been lowered to wanting to see a goal scored. By the Stars. I should probably be specific there.

Jamie Benn about to go live for a press conference.

I'll forgive him if it turns out Stone looked at him funny or something.

Reading Saad's twitter page is making me hate Stars fans more and more.

Domi was fined 5k for a cross check to Stone, uncalled in the game.

I think Stone with his relentless backchecking and awesome puckjacking skills is the kind of opponent guys are going to hate almost as much as someone dirty. He's out there taking the puck away a lot.

At the very least, we need to win 3 more games.

That way if Vegas wins it all I can say the Stars were like one game away from a Cup and keep annoying slaps.

Quit pointing out the other team has good players.

I enjoyed the one offseason where the Stars kept trying to sell fans they were a miss Benn wraparound from winning the Cup.
