The Stars were tested early in their season opener against Boston.
Dallas and coach Jim Montgomery lost three players to injury in the game’s first 30 minutes, most scarily defenseman Roman Polak on an awkward crash into the boards in the second period.
With 12:56 left in the second period, Polak hit the boards first with his right shoulder, immediately followed by his head. He was taken off the ice on a stretcher and did not move while he laid face-down on the ice.
What local Stars fans didn’t get to see was the response to the play from the commentators on NESN’s Bruins broadcast.
“That looked self-induced, didn’t it?,” NESN’s Bruins color analyst Andy Brickley said immediately after the collision.
“Has a little bit of bad hockey karma,” NESN’s Bruins play-by-play announcer Jack Edwards responded.

Polak was transported to a local hospital and is undergoing further evaluation.
