The Stars are in the playoffs again. Another series with the Edmonton Oilers. 5th straight year we're gonna play each other in the first round I believe.
Any Stars fans out there? Anyone thing there gonna go all the way? With the way there playing now(14 straight without a loss to end the season), I think they can. Detroit will be tough as always though.
Stars and Mavs both closing out Reunion with playoff berths. How sweet is that i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif .

Yeah ROB, I love the Stars too. There awesome. I think they can win it all this year. But like you said, Detroit will be really tough. i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif
04-10-2001, 03:34 PM
Haha... I'm a little bit of a fan. I was happy when they won the cup and I know some players, but I don't know stats or anything.
04-11-2001, 03:20 PM
If it helps, I'll be flipping between the games tonight.
04-11-2001, 04:10 PM
I will be too i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif . I'll probably actually watch more of the Stars game though.
04-11-2001, 05:37 PM
It'll be the last Dallas/Edmonton 1st round play off battle in Reunion.i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif
Going into overtime..surprise surprise.
Stars edge the Oilers in overtime and go up 1-0 in the series!
04-11-2001, 11:07 PM
They won but I think I lost all my fingernails i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif .
I waited until the game was over and then checked the score and highlights i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif
04-11-2001, 11:11 PM
hehe, well let me tell you it was a Very nerve racking game i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif . But entertaining as hell too.
04-12-2001, 03:20 PM
They played great defense. The Oilers got their only goal because of about 15 rebounds on one shot.
04-14-2001, 10:46 PM
Gosh Darnit, We lost game 2. 4-3.
Game 3 is tomorrow night in Edmonton.
04-14-2001, 10:52 PM
That was awesome!! I love the Oilers...former Bruin Anson Carter scored the game-winner and former BU star Mike Grier played well too.
You just know this series is going 7 games...
04-14-2001, 11:34 PM
Salo was pretty much invinsible for most of the game. The Stars would get about 15 shots off in one possesion, but no goals.
04-14-2001, 11:35 PM
yeah, Tommy played really well tonight i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif
Damn Oilers i/expressions/face-icon-small-mad.gif I think you're right though..this series will probably go all the way..AGAIN. I just hope we don't have to face the Wings. Hell I don't want to see the Avs again either i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif
04-14-2001, 11:40 PM
I hate the Wings too, but the Kings are playing like crap against them i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif
04-14-2001, 11:44 PM
I don't know. I just don't want the Stars to have to play too many full 7 game series before the big one.
04-14-2001, 11:45 PM
You won't have to worry about that...they won't be getting by the Oilersi/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif
Wow the Stars damn near pissed this one away! Two Edmonton goals in the final minute of regulation?! Any word when Nieuwendyk will be back?
04-15-2001, 11:21 PM
He's day-to-day I think. Man that game was wild. Stars completely dominated, then with 1:03 left, EDDY makes a bonehead misstake and the Oilers score. Then score again with about 7 seconds left in regulation. A very entertaining OT and A Hogue goal with like 5 seconds left.
04-15-2001, 11:40 PM
We'll come back in Game 4, don't worry i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif
I thought we (Edmonton) totally dominated the physical aspect of the game. We were wrecking people all over the ice.
04-17-2001, 03:23 PM
The Stara will take the series in game 5...Unless Eddie has another vapor lock in his head.
Dallas down 0-1 so far late in the second.
ARRRGHHHH STILL 0-1 i/expressions/face-icon-small-mad.gif
Stars takin it to o/t..again.
04-17-2001, 11:00 PM
Shocking Shocking turn of events. Stars and Oilers going to OT.
Stars have been aggressive as hell thus far in the extra session (going back to their monster third period shooting spree). It woud be a real shame if they dropped this one. Fingers crossed i/expressions/face-icon-small-frown.gif
04-17-2001, 11:21 PM
I'll chip in and help the other Oilers fan. I'm a Calgarian, so this is akin to treason for me, but I was a fan of the Oilers before I moved to Calgary. I just hope there aren't any other Calgarians lurking here 'cause I could get lynched for this.
04-17-2001, 11:46 PM
Now a powerplay! It's our turn to win an overtime game.
Sorry guys! It's our turn this year!!
On the flipside, welcome to the board grizzled i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif
04-17-2001, 11:52 PM
Thanks! BTW, in the NBA playoffs, I'm cheering for the Mavs. i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif
At least you've got good taste in NBA teams! j/k i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif I take it you're a Grizz fan (call me Sherlock)? How are you guys feeling about the impending move?
04-18-2001, 12:11 AM
Grizzled, Welcome to the board and GO OILERS
04-18-2001, 12:44 AM
Brilliant sleuthing. i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif We're not happy, obviously. The ownership circus over the last couple of years has sucked the life out of many of us. Check out grizzball.com if you want to know more. It's our main board, along with the ESPN board, but that one has pretty much died. I suspect a lot of us will be following Steve and the Mavs now.
Sean, thanks and how did you get to be an Oilers fan? You mentioned the Boston connection. Are you from Boston?
… I'm out for the evening.
04-18-2001, 09:09 AM
Welcome to the board Grizzled i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif .
04-18-2001, 09:32 AM
Grizzled, I'm not really sure how I became an Oilers fan. I've always liked their style of play, and now that they have Anson Carter, that put them over the top in my book. Plus, Salo is my favorite Goalie i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif.
Fourth o/t of the series..this is getting ridiculous!
04-19-2001, 10:50 PM
No kidding DJ. Don't know if my nervus system can take this anymore i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif .
04-20-2001, 01:19 AM
Saw the OT at a bar after my Thursday night floor hockey game. I actually had Keane in the pool to score the goal. Good series! I have a feeling it'll be coming back to Dallas for the clincher. i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif
(Dallas has a lot of guy I followed in the Junior (WHL) so I won't be too disappointed if you win.)
04-20-2001, 11:36 AM
Damn, the Oilers really gave this one away after an incredible comeback.
04-20-2001, 07:05 PM
This is crazy...If the rest of the playoffs are like this, I wont have any finger nails left. I proabably wont have any after the Mavs/Jazz series either.i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif
04-21-2001, 08:55 PM
WOOHOO!!! WOOHOO!!! STARS WIN!! STARS WIN!!! i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif
04-21-2001, 08:55 PM
Bye Bye Oilers. See ya again next year.
The Stars' version of the Big Three finish off the series in style!
04-23-2001, 02:27 PM
If LA wins tonight over Detroit. Detroit is eliminated. There for giving us a series against the Blues and not Colorado. Who I don't wont to play.
04-24-2001, 03:30 PM
Do you know when they will play next, or is that not determined yet?
04-24-2001, 04:35 PM
I think thursday or friday. Not sure though.
And it will be the St. Louis Blues. Detroit got eliminated by the Kings last night i/expressions/face-icon-small-shocked.gif .
04-24-2001, 06:11 PM
Yes... We can take the Blues Clues Boys. The Stars win in 6 again!
04-24-2001, 08:00 PM
The game is Friday at 7:00. In Dallas.
04-27-2001, 11:00 AM
Blues-Stars. Game 1 starts tonight. I say Stars in 7 i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif . And I predict Roman Turek has a big series against his old mates.
Down 1-4..ERGHHHH!! i/expressions/face-icon-small-mad.gif
04-27-2001, 09:35 PM
UUGGHH. They played B-A-D. Disapointing start to the series. And Modano got hurt too. i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif
04-29-2001, 08:38 PM
Not looking good for the Stars. Down 2-0 going into the 3rd.
04-29-2001, 10:49 PM
ARRGG i/expressions/face-icon-small-mad.gif . Stars lost and are down 2-0 in the series, going to St. Louis for games 3 and 4. They're in a world of trouble. Series is over IMO.
04-29-2001, 10:51 PM
...And Dallas has never beaten Roman Turek i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif . Never should have traded him.
Without that trade, the Stars may not have won the Cup a couple years ago (Hull's shot in the crease - heheh) i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif Any word on whether or not Modano will play in Game 3? Hmm then again, Stars are probably toast with or without him i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif
04-30-2001, 11:10 AM
Are you implying that we got Hull in the Turek trade? Hull came via free agency. All we got for Turek was a scrub(don't think he's even in hockey anymore) and a draft pick or something.
I think I'm one of the few(Very few) that wanted to trade Belfore and keep Roman.
Do know any news about Modano. Hopefully he'll play the next game. We need him BAD!
btw, Turek was on the team that won the Stanley Cup. Remember they traded him like 2 days later.
Oh really? Man I must be losing it..for some reaosn I thought he was packaged in a deal for Hull i/expressions/face-icon-small-blush.gif
04-30-2001, 05:36 PM
Modano says he's ready for game 3.
Mo ready (http://espn.go.com/nhl/playoffs2001/2001/0428/1188028.html)
05-01-2001, 11:53 PM
i/expressions/face-icon-small-mad.gif . Stars lose 3-2 in 2OT. Down in series 0-3 i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif .
Game over. Blues sweep i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif
05-04-2001, 12:07 AM
http://cwm.ragesofsanity.com/cwm/cwm/puke.gif That's all I gotta say about that.
