It’s a simple as this short phrase, Win and They Are In!
That’s right 81 games into the season and the Stars are one win away from their first playoff berth since 2008. You know it’s been a while for the Stars since 12 Dallas Stars have never participated in a Stanley Cup playoff game. The Stars will have to shake off the defeat two nights ago against the Columbus Blue Jackets.
When looking ahead at the schedule two weeks ago this contest with the St. Louis Blues looked like a game that possibly would be a game that the Blues would be resting for the playoffs instead of playing to win. Well four straight losses later the Blues who were talking President’s trophy a few weeks ago now are regulation loss and Colorado Avalanche win away from the #2 seed in the Central Division so they have some serious motivation to get a win tonight.
Back to the Stars they looked like a tired team Wednesday night, but will need to reboot right away in what will be a physical game even though the Blues who will be missing their Captain David Backes. The Stars can’t afford to let this opportunity slip through their hands if not a date with the Phoenix Coyotes will be staring them in the face in the desert with a winner take all contest, so there is no better time than the present to clinch the #8 seed and final playoff spot available.
