Honestly.. We freaking suck today.. Actually, we've been sucking for the last month.
Let me be the first to say this team will grossly dissapoint in the playoffs. It wouldn't surprise me in the least to us losing vs the Avs in simular fashion as in 2004.
Who pissed in your cornflakes?
They will NOT dissapoint in the playoffs. Sick and tired of hearing this whining coming from our fans. Enough is enough. Get behind the team instead of counting them out before it even starts. Playoffs are a whole new season.
Let ME be the first to say that we will NOT grossly dissapoint in the playoffs.
Why did Hedberg play? I figured he'd play either Mon or Tues.
Is Turco getting the rest of the year off?
Off today and Monday and playing Tuesday to get back into a rythm?
Turco will play Monday vs Detroit according to the Post Game Show.
Tip hasn't decided who's playing vs Columbo.
I thought the Stars controlled the puck through out the entire first and second period. The first period, we were controlling the play but we weren't shooting it. FINALLY Robi saw what happens when you just throw it on net. A fluke goal goes in and we're tied 1-1.
Dallas totally dominated the 2nd period IMO. But ast he period wore on, we began to sit on the lead. Minnesota owned us in the 3rd, no question. Lucky enough we came out with the victory in OT. YAY for no shoot out!
