The Stars talked positives after their overtime loss to San Jose. Sure, there were some there. But when you lose a game like this again, with bad mistakes, can you still focus on those positives? I don't know. It was one of the strangest things I've ever seen, this overtime, considering the penalties taken.
Marty Turco called his high-sticking, "nothing short of dumb." Coach Dave Tippett was none too happy with Trevor Daley's hook: "The rule changed three years ago. How we can keep sticking sticks in a guy's stomach just baffles me." As far as Turco's penalty, Tippett said, "I don't know what Marty was thinking about."
Yes, the Stars were more solid in other areas. But a bad mistake is a bad mistake, and they have to stop. Just five games left, folks.
