The Dallas Stars didn’t qualify for the 2018 Stanley Cup Playoffs. But that doesn’t mean their 2017-18 season wasn’t interesting and entertaining. Here is a countdown of the top 25 best games from this past season.

There’s nothing quite like watching a Dallas Stars game.

Whether you are on your couch watching them on TV or in the seats at the American Airlines Center, it’s a unique experience. Part of that has to do with the non-traditional vibe that the team carries in the hockey world.

But a large part of it simply has to do with the team itself. And for the past few years, it’s been a complete gamble when trying to decipher which team you’re going to get.

Maybe you get the 2013-14 Stars who were cautiously optimistic and somehow found a way to make things work? Then there was the 2014-15 Stars that looked good on paper but really struggled to make ends meet on the ice. Or perhaps you get the 2015-16 Stars who were fast, relentless, and oh so much fun to watch? But then again, you might get the eye-sore that was the 2016-17 Stars who couldn’t seem to do anything right.

It’s been an eventful rollercoaster ride over the past few seasons.

But we cannot forget about the most recent corkscrew in the adventure: the 2017-18 regular season.

In this most recent 82-game journey, the Dallas Stars put together quite an intriguing show. It started out slow and average in the beginning, then ramped up to a faster and more impressive speed, but ended by crashing and burning in a horrific fashion.

After putting together a dominant stretch from late November to late February, Dallas all of a sudden flipped into reverse. They undid all of their prior progress and couldn’t seem to do one thing correctly in the month of March.

And as a result, they missed the Stanley Cup Playoffs for the second year in a row. This shortcoming arrived with more confusion and frustration as the Stars settled in for another offseason of significant change.

But it wasn’t all bad. In fact, there were plenty of bright and exciting moments from the 2017-18 season. After all, a record of 42-32-8 has to come with at least a decent number of good times, especially during the team’s 25th anniversary season.

Here at Blackout Dallas, we found 25 games (funny how that works) that were just a little (or lot) more special than the rest. And with that, we thought it would be a good idea to lay them out in a ranked format. This ranking will give Dallas Stars fans the opportunity to take a walk down memory lane and remember some of the bright spots from this past season.

We will post five games at a time over the next week or two until we get down to the no. 1 game of the season. With each game, we will provide a video or highlight (if applicable) of just what made the game so special. We will also put up a summary of the game to help jog your memory.

So, without further ado, let’s get back to the happy times of Dallas Stars hockey. Here are games 25-21 of the Top 25 Games of the 2017-18 Season.
