Let's see, Ducks get away with a slew of penalties that lead to a d-zone face off, puck gets to an open Selanne off a broken play. Ducks draw a legit call but one a bit out of context with the nothing called the rest of the game for the game winner.
Phoenix gets the game tying-goal when one of their players actually partially whiffs on a shot.
There are a lot of bounces, and you can almost always say the winner "was fortunate" in a close game.
I'll partially agree, The refs did us in in this game. BUT, there has been this recurring theme this year of the Stars going turtle in the D zone in the last minutes of a game with a 1 goal lead and not attacking. We do not have the defense to sustain that type of play. If we allow them into our zone to cycle us as they please, then we open ourselves up to the broken plays and ridiculous officiating. Crawford needs to look at what we're doing wrong late in games with the lead and fix it quick. We got away with this stuff earlier in the season, but we won't at this juncture of the season.
