It’s a beautiful Tuesday and the countdown continues to tick away! 44 days until the Dallas Stars open up their season against the Chicago Blackhawks on October 9th at the American Airlines Center.
I’ve started a new series, and if you didn’t catch yesterday’s poll, tough luck.
I have made a bracket, one like you would see for the NBA or NHL playoffs, of the 16 best games of the Dallas Stars 2013-2014 regular season. I’m sure you will agree entirely with the 16 games I have chosen, and if not, then just play along and comment at the end with which one you feel should have been given a chance and won.
So, I will put a poll up for each of the next 15 days featuring one of the games, with a brief argument for why it should be considered. Then, you can go to the bottom and vote on which one you think deserves to move on to the next round. The poll will expire 24 hours after it is put up, just in time for the next bracket of games to be put up. At the end of the Sweet 16, I will announce the winners and results of the entire round and start up the Elite 8, and so on and so forth. Sound fun? If so, great! If not, oh well.
The results are officially in and who’s ready to hear how each of the eight games panned out?! Here are the results:
The Detroit Red Wings game from November 7th VS. The Vancouver Canucks game from March 6th: Detroit won the match, 19-5
The Toronto Maple Leafs game from January 23rd VS. The Calgary Flames game from November 14th: Toronto won the match, 16-12
