Stars coach: ‘We’ll come out hard tomorrow, if we have any [blank]‘

If you look at just the final score, it seemed like the Dallas Stars suffered a respectable 3-2 loss to the Los Angeles Kings on Sunday. That’s not how head coach Glen Gulutzan sees it, though.

He didn’t shy away for blasting his team (which was out-shot a staggering 40-15) to the Dallas Morning News’ Mike Heika after the game.

“We’re fighting for our lives here, and if we think with performances like that, we can stroll in, we’re mistaken,” Gulutzan said. “We’ve got a three-game series against Anaheim, and after an embarrassing outing in front of our home fans like that, we better come out hard tomorrow … we will come out hard tomorrow, if we have any [expletive].”

(Let’s just say Gulutzan questioned his team’s … intestinal fortitude.)

It’s understandable that the second-year bench boss was incited to make such a comment, as his team had a chance to distance themselves from the pack a little bit. Instead, the Stars find themselves in a logjam behind the eighth-ranked Columbus Blue Jackets for a playoff spot.

We’ll see if the Stars prove they have, um, guts against the Anaheim Ducks on Monday.

    Since when is that an expletive? The over censored, carebear world we live in is a real joke sometimes.

      Media crap. The media seems way behind the rest of the world as far as what qualifies as normal speech these days. Back in the 50s and 60s fuc* was seldom heard. Now it’s as common as “please.”

      Like it or not, catch up to society media world.

    COULD O’BRIEN ROCK ?

    Just when I’m about to thrown in the towel here on what I believe is a “compromised” PHT website, the quality writer O’Brien does the “right thing” by offering up an excellent article on our King’s glorious victory tonight in Dallas … “good show, jolly good show old chap!”. Like many of you, I also don’t know Gulutzan from Adam, but that’s besides the point. All that matters friends is the fact that our “lethal” offense lead by comrades Carter and Kopitar, absolutely “peppered” the opposition’s net tonight with shots. And as we know, with peppering comes victory … and from victory comes joy! :)

    GO KINGS GO !!! … TODAY, TOMORROW AND FOREVER !!!!!!!
