That could describe a few things. That last goal, definitely. This latest losing streak, definitely.
This whole mess, definitely.
I don't know what's gone so wrong this month. Tonight there were several problems. No power play against a team you've scored so many power-play goals against this season. Bad penalties (sorry, there were bad ones on both sides. Just be careful). And a terrible goal at the end.
The Stars' third periods are still bad, since that's where they continue to find ways to get all befuddled and fall apart (whether it's one person or several). I just don't know what to think right now, folks. It's games like these that make you feel jaded, make you wonder if you're just getting ready to cover another first-round loss. I'm hoping against hope that's not the case. But this team has to get better fast.
Oh, and some good news: Sergei Zubov will be skating tomorrow. Can't get him back fast enough right now.
