That’s not a good way to start a season

The optimist in me is saying “At least we got a point” but in the hard Pacific division, 1 point isn’t enough.

It seemed a little too familiar, the other team takes the lead, we come back in the second to tie then take the lead, only to have the other team tie it up and we fall apart and fall behind again.  Remember that from last season?  I guess it’s easy to fall back into old habits.

We almost pulled it out, after falling down 4-2 in the third, the Stars managed 2 goals just over 30 seconds between them.  But, it wasn’t enough.  With just 21 seconds left in overtime, Rick Nash sealed the deal for the BlueJackets.

There were some great, great plays by the Stars; like the whole second period and the last 4 minutes of the third, but they need to play like that the entire game.  The fire doesn’t get lit until they get behind, and that needs to be fixed.

I guess I could mention who scored the Stars goals huh?  Brenden Morrow got the first goal from Ribeiro and Robidas.  James Neal scored second, Robi got another assist on that.  I’m really really glad James Neal got to stay, he deserves it and is going to be a fantastic player on our team, especially with Mike Modano.  He also played with Sean Avery, who looked like the clumsiest person ever on the ice.  Avery was falling around all over the play, he did have some good set ups though.  Brad Richards got a goal in the 3rd period to make it 4-3 BlueJackets with Robidas and Lundqvist getting the assist.  Then 30 seconds later, Daley got a goal from Ribeiro and Modano.

Hopefully tonight against the Preds goes better.

The 3 stars of the night were

  1. Pascal Leclaire
  2. Stephane Robidas
  3. Rick Nash

I have more people to add to the shitlist, including every ref and linesman from last night for not calling interference on the dude who LAYED on Mike Modano for like a minute.

    RE: the no-call on Mo being layed on top of
    They also checked him when they finally let him up, and STILL no ref call! What was that?? The entire arena was booing, and with good reason. I was really hoping it would piss our guys off and we’d start making bigger hits, but no such luck.

    I was about ready to jump off the balcony and beat the shit out of the guy pinning Mo and the Refs and linesman. I was so livid.
