Miro remains our playoff scoring leader with 21 points (5G 16A) in 16 games now. He is also riding an 8-game point streak.
That Hanzal's so hurt right now.

Has Seguin outscored any of our under 25ers?

What's that on Seguin's forearm? Is that some kind of aircast?

Not all that surprised. Wouldn’t be the playoffs without Seguin immediately becoming injured.

I remember that 2008 WCF against Detroit, when we really had no business there and got quickly and summarily dispatched. I think we are more competitive in this one. Vegas is the favorite in the whole of the West and would be clear favorites. But Couv? They were a great home team and bad road team and have very little experience on the big stage, if any. If we keep up the scoring, why not?

Maybe they have their own tattoo guy in the bubble. For some players, it's a first necessity thing. Like Benn's own pharmacologist for his valium dosage.

Modano played with a hurt wrist and he was nothing but guts and grit.

That’s covered because we already hate Benn.

Not knowing from experience, but I think that's some type of STD on Seguins wrist.

Modano was still (barely) able to crack the top 10 most effective players on the 99 team with a broken wrist. Just saying.

Didn't seem like Seguin played almost 18 minutes but he did. And he was on the ice for 3 Dallas goals for. Funny how that is.

JFK has become the new nickname for Kiviranta. Want to know why?

So the cup parade route will go down Main Street, then right on Houston, then a hard left on to Elm.

The last time the Stars made it this far in the playoffs was also the start of the last Great Recession.

Which took down the owner and lead to a decade wandering in the desert. Enjoy this run, because I would bet on history repeating itself.

Yeah that deflection he made and this shot were not easy goals. The OT goal was the only good scoring chance he had in the game.

Although I know it doesn't fit the TSF narrative, Benn is tied for fourth in goals on the team during the playoffs, third in assists and third in points. Yeah, he isn't MacKinnon taking over games single handidly, but he hasn't just been taking up space either.
