The Dallas Stars made their way through the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs against the Minnesota Wild in six games. It was a tough series, but ultimately the better, and more disciplined team took the series. The Dallas Stars will be facing off against the Seattle Kraken with their home ice advantage.
Getting home ice in Dallas for round two is absolutely a huge win for the Stars. The home crowd is always electric, and certainly showed that in the first round series against the Wild. The Seattle Kraken just edged out a grueling series against the defending Stanley Cup champions, Colorado Avalanche, in seven games.
The rest for the Stars could also be a huge factor. They wrapped up their series against the Wild Friday night, while the Kraken had to go the distance against one of the tougher opponents in the whole league. Both teams are a little bit banged up, but it should be quite the series between the two teams competing for a spot in the Western Conference Finals.
Round two action will get underway Tuesday night at the AAC where the Dallas Stars will be facing off against the Seattle Kraken. Here’s to hoping the boys are playing that song in the locker room 12 more times during this playoff run.
