The Dallas Stars once again out played the Nashville Predators on Saturday afternoon in Nashville and in doing so earned themselves a 3-2 series lead, game 6 is Monday night at the American Airlines Centre and the Stars with another home win will be able to eliminate the Predators and advance to the 2nd round where the St Louis Blues await them.
The Stars are slowly earning some respect with the NHL, the players and coaches always speak highly of the Stars and their players, however, I personally have only had the option of watching the national broadcast for the first round and it is still upsetting to listen to the NHL talk of the Stars as if they don’t deserve to be where they are. They are starting to get more recognition, this is much deserved and a good thing but there is no hiding the fact the play-by-play team get way more excited when Nashville scores than when the Stars do… Maybe we notice this more as Stars fans, or maybe I am just missing all the ‘Razorisms’ but the Stars have without question been the better team for all but 1 game this series and should have already eliminated the Predators, so another big home performance and the Stars can advance in front of their home crowd.
The St Louis Blues have already eliminated Winnipeg so the Stars will get another shot against the Blues in the playoffs, the Stars fell to St Louis a few years back in a disappointing game 7 at the AAC. The Stars where 3-1-0 this year against St Louis so they can advance to the second round with yet more confidence.
Tickets are still available for game 6 in Dallas, let’s make sure we will the arena and show our Stars all the support we can! Tickets can be found here.
