Dallas Stars Daily Links: Stars Can't Cash In On Opportunities

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

Thoughts from the game against the Blues, more top 10 countdowns, and how an HBO show confirms NHL rumors.

The Stars had a chance to continue their home winning streak.  They had two full minutes of 4-on-3 play in overtime, and couldn't cash in.

Yet the Blues only needed 20 seconds of it to get the extra point.

It just felt like that kind of night, didn't it?  Especially after having the first goal of the game waived off due to goalie interference.  Such is the life of hockey.

Regardless of the calls made for or against the Stars, the bottom line is that the Dallas Stars need to start converting on those opportunities. And while there has certainly been progress in that department, there is still a long way to go.  Lindy Ruff agrees. [Dallas Morning News]

And with it are some good quotes from last night, including some from former captain Brenden Morrow -- who admits he was trying to keep from tearing up during the video tribute. [Stars Inside Edge]

These thoughts and observations are from the game against the Predators, but I don't think they were up in time for the last set of links.  At any rate, it's a good read.  And when you follow along the same trail of thought as Mike Heika, you can see how the Stars lost on Sunday.

Maybe tomorrow we should have a top 10 countdown of the top 10 countdown articles, because here are a few more for you:

Here are the latest thoughts on the 24/7 series for this year, which seem to be improving when compared to the scathing review of episode 1.  The best part about it?  A rumor was confirmed on contract extension talks between the Maple Leafs and one of their star players.  Go figure. [Puck Daddy]

And from around the rest of the NHL, Neal keeps on scoring, just like always.  Here's the top 3 stars from yesterday's games. [Puck Daddy]
