That one stung last night. The loss to Colorado marks the sixth time this season, and second game in a row, where the Stars have blown a lead of two or more. Those six blown leads have resulted in four losses. Unlike Monday night, the Stars just couldn't overcome their inconsistent play to pull out the win.
In spite of that, Jagr continues to own the Avs personally. Last night's three point effort marks eight straight games in which he has scored a point against Colorado.
I haven't been able to track down any info on Whitney's injury. He left the game with an upper body injury, but there has been no word from the Stars about the extent or whether it will keep him out of tonight's game in LA.
Going back to the opening topic, here's
a bit from blog post by Tim Cowlishaw about Tom Gaglardi. It rings even louder and clearer after last night...
“Having said that, when the season began, I thought we’d be a playoff team. To say I expect it now? That’s a small stretch.”
The alarming thing — and whether it’s more alarming for Nieuwendyk, who already has made two coaching changes as GM, or for Gulutzan I don’t know — is what Gaglardi sees when he watches the team he bought from Tom Hicks and his many creditors in November 2011.
“I want to see us play better hockey. I haven’t liked the kind of hockey we’ve played the last few games,” he said.
And that was before last night, which needless to say, didn't help matters.
