Afterwords: The End and the Beginning

Afterwords: The End and the Beginning

Photo by Gerry Thomas/NHLI via Jake Oettinger’s legendary performance was not enough to push Dallas past Calgary, and now the offseason looms... As I mentioned in my piece for Game 5, I wasn’t able to watch Game 6 until Sunday. In fact, I ended up watching it right before Game 7, using it as a “warm up” of sorts, a way to hype me up heading into the game. I knew the final score — my efforts to remain unspoiled until I could watch it were in vein — but I didn’t know how it happened. And so I watched with marvel at the Dallas Stars seemingly take what I...

Stars squander another brilliant performance from Oettinger in Game 7 OT loss in Calgary

Stars squander another brilliant performance from Oettinger in Game 7 OT loss in Calgary

Sergei Belski-USA TODAY Sports Stars exit the first round after a 3-2 loss in overtime in Game 7. To say Jake Oettinger has been amazing in this first round series against the Calgary Flames would be a tremendous understatement. He’s been the best player on the ice for the Dallas Stars. Heck, I’d argue that he’s been the best player on the ice, period. Game six is the only game in which Dallas has outshot the Flames. And yet, here we are in a game seven. Why? Because of Oettinger. And the Stars would need him to be brilliant again. That he was. Look no further...

Dallas collapses in Game Five: lose 3-1

Sergei Belski-USA TODAY Sports The Dallas Stars dropped game five 3-1 after a third period collapse. Calgary fired sixteen shots on net and score three unanswered goals to complete a comeback victory. Coming off of a thrashing in game four, the Dallas Stars headed to Calgary to take on a Flames squad that was head and shoulders better in the last outing. Dallas struggled with every aspect of the game in game four, surrendering fifty-four shots in a game that should have been far worse if not for Jake Oettinger. Following the game Rick Bowness mentioned that the Stars...

Photo by Glenn James/NHLI via The Stars are tied 2-2 with the Flames, and it’s all thanks to the man in net. Plus, the NHL Draft Lottery is tonight, the Islanders fire Barry Trotz, and more. Let’s not talk about last night’s game right away. Or, at least, let’s only talk about the positive: Jake Oettinger is really good at hockey — the Stars’ netminder leads all goalies this postseason with a .960 SV%. He’s also the second youngest goaltender (youngest starter), and outside of some relief efforts in the 2020 Stanley Cup Final, this is his first...

Stars Engulfed by Flames, Series Now Tied 2-2

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports And Jake Oettinger deserved better. The series was back in Texas tonight for game 4 between the Dallas Stars and the Calgary Flames. After taking a series lead on Saturday night, the Stars enkindled that most dangerous of all emotions in their fans: hope. And it was that hope that was completely dashed by the rest of tonight’s events. First Period The first period was Jake Oettinger’s to lose, because that’s how much pressure the Stars’ lack of offense put on the netminder. Thankfully, for the first period at least, Oettinger was...
