Dallas Stars troll own fans by playing Nickelback for an entire period

This is genius.

The Dallas Stars are well known for their in-game entertainment troll jobs, but their latest attempt might have backfired and upset their own fan base.

The Stars were playing the Vancouver Canucks at home on Thursday, and the American Airlines Center DJ started the period with one Nickelback song. Get it? The Canucks are from Canada, and so is Nickelback. Kind of funny. Luckily it was just one song, right?

Wrong. They played Nickelback for the entire period during every stoppage.

It is sort of a hilarious concept. Only, Stars fans reacted violently to it.

But the Stars took no mercy.

Kudos, Stars. You continue to be in-arena entertainment savants.
