Haha, the Stars beat writer for DMN tried to fly up to Canada to cover the Finals and got rejected by Canadian customs. I can see that exchange with the customs officer. "We know hockey up here...you're obviously showing fraudulent paperwork...there's no way the Dallas Stars are in the Stanley Cup Finals."

I read his article about that. I like that he tried to make hockey small talk with the border agents just to prove he knew hockey.

And the league's plan to bring players' families to the bubble fell apart for the same reason. Canada has extended the border closure through the end of October, and Canada is not going to let the families of hockey players through.

No Faksa again. He might miss most of the series.

One thing I think Tampa will be surprised by is the Dallas PP.

A big difference from the Islanders is PPs. From the first round on, the NYI had a 15.4% PP while the Stars have a 27.3% PP. The Islanders are good at keeping games tied, but they were not able to use the man advantage to change a game the way the Stars have. So for Tampa to think they’re facing another team like the Islanders would be very wrong.

It makes a big difference in how you play if you fear taking penalties. I guess the thing to see is how much the very veteran ref crew follows tradition of swallowing their whistles. It may seem counter intuitive to think the less offensive team would be hurt by “let them play” reffing, but the Stars have leaned very heavily on their PP. I hope the refs call a tight game.

Ehhh refs calling it tight will only punish the Stars. You think Rads, Benn, Perry, etc will be able to behave themselves against Tampa’s speed?

The Islanders' offense was substantially different from the Stars'. Isles really did not cycle the puck and their PP was really anemic and one dimensional.

Cody’s PP is anemic and one dimensional and he still managed to land a fiance.

Give any NHL player that much time, and they’ll look great.

TVA fact: first time since 1928 that the SC final is held at the same location.

They do have some pretty fast players. Also some less than fast ones.
