Like, just take embellishment out of the rule book if no one is ever going to think to call it. Save everyone some time.

Yeah as soon as that puck didn't go in I knew TB was seconds from scoring. It's happened in pretty much every series. Stars fail and immediately get poo poo on.

It is absolutely insane how many brain dead moments the Dallas Stars are putting out there.


The margin for error is like......atomically thin. And they keep on just...sticking their own tires in the mud.

Sorry you didn't catch all the poo poo in the first period committed by Tampa, then

In a vacuum you can't really be upset with this season as a Stars fan. I still don't know how they got this far.


But outside the vacuum in the realm of emotional investment this is still an absolute garbage series and yet another season where I'm reminded that the playoffs are a competition between two teams and referees that change the rules every 5 minutes. Consistency is a myth.

the stars are like 1/15 for turning power plays into goals this series, you've gotta do some introspection at some point and realize that yeah there's been lovely calls, but they've been on both sides, the stars have just sucked rear end at capitalizing on their opportunities

I am 100% aware of that. Going into this series the Stars were outclassed in just about every category, it's not like I don't realize that. But it's garbage to have two teams trying to play a game as a man in stripes flips a coin on whether or not he's going to call something the same way he did during the regular season. Consistency is all I want. Every single season people bring up "playoff refs," it's acknowledged by everyone who follows hockey, and........? It does not make the sport more enjoyable to know that while your team sucked poo poo the officials also had a brain aneurysm and can't remember what rules are.


EDIT: Hell, example on the other end. Last night everyone pointed out the ridiculous embellishment call in the 3rd. It was a horseshit call. Best I could figure out it was either some insane makeup call for crap earlier in the game or the ref reflexively called something but then realized it'd gently caress up the game and threw a second penalty in there. That's...insane. Absolutely insane.

Yeah I hate how much of the narrative becomes ďthe stars took bad penaltiesĒ when so much poo poo is uncalled

If they just called it straight teams would have to play right or combat the severe punishment of disadvantage. But instead we get this inconsistent bs

I mean, they did take some awful fuckin penalties in game 2. They lost the game in the first period on penalties alone.

Hey everybody, Coach Shinjobi here.


Now normally I'd say you should not commit penalties against Tampa Bay. It normally is not a smart thing to do.




But you should definitely not do it right after you intentionally destroyed one of their players with no call. That's....not wise.

Big props to the Dallas player that whiffed on the over pursuit in the Tampa Bay zone to make that a 5v3

The Stars have been outworked on the stick throughout the series. Seguin is probably the one with the best hands but yikes the Lightning can react faster than just about everyone else on the ice.


It does not make things easier.
