Wtf do the Oilers expect to happen? They actually played really well up until the end, but it doesnt matter if you produce incredible scoring chance after incredible scoring chance if you JUST CANT SCORE. Tough to watch.

Also, what the hell was with the refs? It was like they put their whistles away in Dallas's favor until the game was out of reach. There were at least 4 EASY calls that they let go.

Karma for Columbus. Spot the stars 2 joke goals.

Very solid first two periods.

Not Dubnyk's best game.

I liked Hall's game. He's getting more confident. The goals will come.

Good effort not rewarded. Dallas/Jagr curse. Payback for Coumbus.
Better team withou 94 and 6.

Hope it's a good learning game for Yak. Can't turn over a puck like that 4-on-4. Gotta manage the puck better.

2 fluke goals against. Even Jagr's goal seemed to be tipped little bit.
Feel bad for Dubnyk

If Eberle scores on that backhander, it's a different game.

Too many games are decided by luck in this league.

Couldn't watch, just listened as I studied. The only thing I could really take (at least before I get a chance to watch the game) is that this team needs some offense badly. I suppose depending on a bunch of 19 and 20 year olds has its draw backs.

This team should really be on a 7 game losing streak, hell if it wasn't for duby it would probably be at like 10 games right now.


Just another loss before Tamby gets canned.

I can't believe they didnt call the patented interference call like they did on Suter yesterday. The barely touch, since Dhillon did that exact play to Yakupov

It scares me whenever I see Gagner wind up with the puck in our zone while trying to outskate a forechecker.
Don't know why people blame the refs. The PP is crap anyways. They could have had 10 chances and probably would have gone 0/10. They try the same stupid moves each time, that don't work. They popped a few at the start of the season, but haven't done much with it lately.

I thought that Gagner had a good game and then he took that tripping penalty and the wheels came off. Either we're saving all of our goals for a playoff push or we are in deep ****.

Two of the flukiest goals I have ever seen gave Dallas what they needed to win this game.

It also didn't help that the refs were wearing green and yellow jerseys all night apparently. High hits from Dillon, blatant crosschecks in the numbers, holding a stick in order to score a goal, ext...

The kid line started trying to make Highlight Reel plays again in the third. Im not sure what was wrong with the whole "Get pucks on net" mentality that was dominating the Stars for the first 40mins.

The only explanation is the hockey gods getting even for the awful win we had the other night against the BlueJackets, who were clearly the better team.

With all that being said, if our team plays like they did in the first two periods for the rest of the season, throwing pucks on net, hard hitting and speedy hockey, the playoffs are definitely a realisitic goal. Expect a big win next game after tonights dissapointing loss.

This one was hard to take. How can we get our guys to score? Nothing you can do about those lucky Dallas goals...

This team is just dog ****, speed to burn but hardly a lick of hockey sense or grit. Best beer league team ever though!

I thought the officiating was brutal in this game. The Stars got away with some serious mugging in front of their net. The big problem was consistency, the Eager hold was kind of weak, but it was obvious and likely a reputation call. But if that is a hold, Hall should have drawn about 8 on his own. Eberle had his stick grabbed right in front of the net, no call.

Not that we would have capitalized the way our PP is going.

It's weird how every team who loses to Dallas says the same thing.

Lehtonen has been carrying that team for a couple of seasons.

I've seen a bad game (the LA Kings game) but after almost every loss there's multiple "eff you refs". Maybe the Oilers are losing because the Oilers ****ed up...

100% agreed with you about the PP.

I wonder what it's like watching these games as a Stars fan. I wonder what it's like knowing for a fact, that your team cannot lose a single game against this team.

the oilers played a good game...they're just snakebit...pucks are not going there way right now. How about the fans that are eagar to talk **** . support them through this tough time instead kicking them when there down. Some of the stuff I see here I wonder if some you are even oiler fans. It was tough break, man up and get out over it. I believe in this team,, and I'll stand with them through the worst.

We're oiler fans, act like it.
