The Dallas Stars extinguish the Calgary Flames and advance to Round 2 of the 2020 Stanley Cup Playoffs.
The Stars have an early icing call go against them that results in a quick 1-0 lead for the Flames and had the Stars, or maybe just the fans, once again feeling like we were in for another bad night of hockey. However, the Stars looked a completely different team and immediately dominated and looked like the Stars team we saw towards the end of 2019.
The Stars have dropped the first game that really mattered since the return, once again offense was an issue, however, they did manage to tally 2 goals once again in the middle frame and in very quick succession. In fact, franchise playoff record setting! The two Stars goals came just 9 seconds apart to tie the game and completely shift the momentum and feeling of the game, however, the Flames took the lead again and unfortunately the Stars did not have an answer and have dug themselves into a little whole by going down 1-0 in the best of 7 series.
It’s game day, round 1 kicks off today as the Dallas Stars and Calgary Flames kick things off in Edmonton.
Also, the Dallas Stars Fan Site returns! We are sorry we have been very quiet since the season was put on hold, but we are back and will be giving you our thoughts on how the Stars perform during the playoffs!
