And yet, it wasn't enough during a hard-fought game against a talented opponent.

"I guess the first word that comes is frustrated," said Bishop. "There was a good opportunity there and just a little frustrated right now, tough to end your season in OT."

Stars' season fittingly comes down to do-or-die Game 7

This series needed at Game 7, and it will get it.
