Minnesota is probably too far ahead already. They're simply a better team. Stars are going to be close to the 10 percent playoff chance threshold if the streak keeps going, which is where I typically pull the plug on the orangutan. Not to mention this is one of their most favorable matchups possible, a game that absolutely must count in the win column. 9 of the 13 remaining games until the Olympic break I would categorize as "hard" or games where the Stars wouldn't be favored.
I mean, good lord. This team gives up 3 goals a game. That isn't making the playoffs. Teams that bad draft in the top 5 typically.
Saw it on NHL.com comment section, take it with a handful of salt.
The flu has hit the Stars locker room pretty bad this past week, and Val is the most recent victim. After last nights game, I had the chance to get autographs from the team--but Val wasn't present because he has the flu.
Might explain him not doing that good (though he was decent last game).
That's been their excuse through this whole thing, well mostly Razor and company's excuse.
The amount of excuses Razor makes is really starting to be annoying. But I don't think the flu bug really is. Though the point was that Nichushkin might be the new victim, and Marks tweet kind off confirms that.
