Disagree. He knocked his stick out.

It was interference. Wrong call.

Bishop was too far out of his crease, which is also why he was nowhere near the post when the shot was taken.

Really? I'd have to go back and look but I was sure at least 75% of his feet were in the blue.

Don't forget:

By continuously trying, we always end up to make it work. So the more we lose, the greater are the chances to win.

I truly feel that this team has the core of a good team, but needs a complete coaching and style makeover.

I agree. It has the core of a good team from 2012.

I think that's unfair. If Benn was playing on the third line, and Hint / Gurianov were the top line center / right wing, they just need to dump guys like Dowling, Janmark, and Perry and bring in a middle-six guy with some speed and skill. I think they would be pretty good, so long as the coaches are changed and they move to a modern system.

YouTube TVs new deal with Sinclair RSNs(like FSSW), means a lot of people now won't get them anymore.

I would suggest getting NHL.tv but they're still doing local blackouts despite lifting the national blackout restriction.

Blackouts are such a relic now. They should get rid of them.

That's not an NHL thing, up to congress same with TV channel disputes, old outdated laws. Since 2016 they've wanted to update/eliminate them but nothing gets done

In 2017 they allowed even in local markets people to watch national broadcasts for the first round.
This year it's different because all teams didn't play enough games to collect on RSN deals so that's why the local broadcasts for qualifying/round robin and first round.

Yes it's absurd someone 15 miles from Twin Cities is out of market now from Fox Sports North, so the person no longer gets it and got rid of YouTube TV. That's the new deal Sinclair for the Fox Sports (RSNs) channels signed with YouTube this spring.


They figure they'll cut the staff by 50% on all RSNs, only the home team will provide the broadcast, where the broadcasters won't travel anymore.

Hintz looked good. Let's attach two boat anchors to him to see what happens.

Yeah, besides the FCC line let's weaken all three other lines to see what happen.

I would join all dead weights together just to have 1 or 2 "competitive" lines, and this begins with putting back Benn-Seguin-Radulov together. At least no one could be accused to slow down the others.

Plan to shut down Hintz confirmed, according to the projected line-up. Khudobin getting the start, which makes sense.

And here's tonight's poll: How many goals will the Stars score ?

■ -1
■ 0
■ 0.2
■ 1 (disallowed)
■ A fifth option, seriously ?

Harley is gonna be interesting. On the one hand, why not? But I hope he doesn't get eaten alive by the Avs. His D is scary.

Ah, this is why. Klingberg is out. Harley is playing because Polak stayed in Europe.

Also... no Bishop.

Harley should be able to not contribute at least as well as Klingberg.

Don't want to be mean, but Klingberg is unfit to play since October.

Is it a good sign that Hintz just got handled like a rag doll by Nichushkin, the weakest and least physical player in league history?

Couldn’t help but notice how snappy the Avs power play looked.
