Dallas Stars cross the line with disrespectful song against the Oilers

The Dallas Stars have crossed the line with a disrespecful song following their game two win against the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday night.

For the past few years, the Oilers have been using the song "La Bamba" after every home game wins as a tribute to the Joey Moss, who passed away in 2020 and Ben Stelter, a young fan who passed from cancer in 2022.

"Lore check for those in need, the @EdmontonOilers play «La Bamba» as tribute to Joey Moss who passed in 2020, it was his favorite song. Ben Stelter who was close to the team popularized «Play La Bamba Baby» passed in 2022. It's about as sacred as the anthem for the team."

It's safe to say that the song has a special meaning for the Oilers, and the Stars completely disrespected that.

After winning the second game of their series against the Oilers, the Stars organization played "La Bamba" in the American Airlines Center.

It'll be interesting to see if Connor McDavid, Leon Draisaitl and the rest of the Oilers players go into game three, in Edmonton, motivated and fired up to crush the Stars.
