So, I’m not even sure what to say

Stars are now down 3-0 in the series after a 5-2 loss last night.  Only 2 teams in the history of the NHL have come back after going down 3-0.  As much as I love my team, I don’t see that happening against the Red Wings.  Granted, I’m still praying for a miracle.  The Red Wings team is a far too skilled, puck-possession team.  (Do you know how much it pains me to say that?)  The injuries that have plagued the Stars all season aren’t helping either.  While we were able to get through a few, having Lehtinen, Barnes and Boucher out at once, well we are definitely feeling that.

The Stars started out strong last night.  Nicklas Grossman scored his first NHL goal ever 15 minutes into the 1st period.  Unfortunately, his goal was bookended by goals from Datsyuckie.  Brad Richards managed to tie the game back up 3 minutes into the 2nd, but Jiri Hudler gave the Wings another lead less than 10 minutes later.

In the third period, Jitterbug gave the Wings a 2 goal lead with a short-handed goal just 1:33 into the period.  Pavel Datsyuk finished up the night with a hat trick, making the final score 5-2.
