The Star Telegram has an interesting piece on how the Stars are an awful road team. While they’ve only dropped four of 16 games at home, they’ve lost 11 of 16 on the road. Having watched a couple of Star road games this season, I’d venture that part of the problem is how oddly unphysical the team is on the road. It’s like wearing those road whites turns them to glass or something.
Coach Dave Tippett had better figure out how to get his team firing on the road, though. A road record that bad (and a horribly underperforming Mike Modano) is just the type of thing that gets a coach fired.
I’m just saying. Don’t shoot the messenger.
