Careful what you wish for, right?  Well, we can thank the NHL’s flawed playoff seeding system (which was changed going into the 2013-14 season) for this one. Ultimately, Stars fans...

Observations: Stars aren't perfect, but they can be pretty entertaining

If they're putting together a new Schoolhouse Rock video on interjections any time soon, Game 6 between the Stars and Wild is a great place to seek examples.The only thing is they might have to update the 1970s terms, "Eek," "Darn," and "Rats" with a little saltier language.But that's just how the Stars' season has been this year.

When the Dallas Stars took a 4-0 lead into the third period of an elimination game, it looked like the Minnesota Wild were going to be booed off the ice in their final game of the season. But this is the run-and-gun, don’t-look-away Stars that have been one of the most exciting teams in the league this season for reasons both good and bad. Dallas’ goaltending has been unreliable...

Coyle hit on Demers; Did Demers Embellish?

Minnesota Wild forward Charlie Coyle appears to hit Dallas Stars defenseman Jason Demers up high. While it looks like Coyle might have caught him a bit, it also appears that Demers embellished this call greatly. I would give Demers an Academy Award, too.

It’s not exactly a goaltending controversy, but Dallas Stars coach Lindy Ruff isn’t quite sure which goaltender he’s going with in Game 6 against the Minnesota Wild — or if he is, he certainly isn’t telling anyone.
