Philly and Dallas need to get their defenses in order. Good Lord, what a game in Big D. That’s not a compliment; the Stars and Flyers played hot potato with the lead all night while playing some truly horrendous defense. The Stars get a slight pass because they were playing with five defensemen, but even that’s no excuse for blowing a 4-2 lead in the third period. On one hand, all-out offensive games like this are pretty exciting. On the other hand, it’s a big reason why these two clubs are going to be fighting for their respective conference’s wild card berths instead of one of the top seeds. Impact Moment I bet some Avs fan is reading this and thinking that using the term “embarrassing” up there was a bit harsh. Well, I humbly request you watch this P.K. Subban goal again. Really look at it, specifically the defensemen falling down and failing to cover the wide open Norris Trophy winner with the puck two feet in front of the net. source: http://www.sbnation.com/nhl/2014/10/19/7001803/nhl-scores-stamkos-crosby-seguin-penguins-lightning-stars
