The Stars shocked the league with the sweep over the hawks, especially seeing that they hadnt beat the hawks in nearly two years up until one of the last games of the year. Then to go into the series and win two in the Cage is extremely impressive.
With a matchup against the Broncos starting on Friday, it reminds me of the 2003 Stanley Cup Playoffs.. The "Mighty" Ducks of Anaheim stunned the Red Wings in the opening round by sweeping them in four. The Ducks would then defeat the #1-seeded Dallas Stars in six games in the Conference Semifinals, which was noted for Game 1 being the fourth longest game in NHL history, with the Ducks winning in the fifth overtime period thanks to Petr Sykora...They later on beat the wild but ended up loosing in the Stanley Cup Finals..
I guess the point I am tryin to make is that with all the odds against the boys, never count them out..We saw what happens when a team may take the stars lightly.
Here's to a great series,
