Tony Romo Was at the Dallas Stars Game 7, Which Explains Why They Lost 6-1 (Tweets)
The Dallas Stars were the top team in the Western Conference this season, and on Wednesday night they needed just one more win against the St. Louis Blues in Game 7 at home to advance to the Western Conference Finals.
Unfortunately, that did not happen. Starting goaltender Kari Lehtonen gave up three goals in the first period (plus a fourth that got called back after a coach’s challenge) and replacement Antti Niemi allowed two more in the second period. The Stars thus found themselves trailing the Blues 5-0 heading into the third period, and though they did manage to get on the board, the Blues easily held on for a huge 6-1 victory.
So what went wrong for Dallas? Well, most analysts will point to shaky goaltending, underperforming superstars, and the key injury to Tyler Seguin. But Dallas sports fans know the real reason the Stars screwed the pooch in Game 7: Tony Romo.
That’s right, the Dallas Cowboys quarterback was in attendance at the American Airlines Center on Wednesday, and he brought his playoff curse with him:
