“MacArthur Park” isn’t playing yet, but the needle is about to drop. Wes and Taylor return to the #Disco, and look to the future. It’s not really saying the quiet part out loud to observe that the Dallas Stars’ season is all but over.
The Stars have put themselves in a position where they must play near perfect hockey the rest of the season. Well I’m not sure words can quite explain the difficult situation the Dallas Stars have put themselves in.
In what could’ve been the biggest game of the year Saturday, the Dallas Stars could not have given it any more than they did. With an opportunity to pull even for fourth in the standings with the Nashville Predators, sixty minutes wasn’t enough to settle the finale in what’s been a neck-and-neck season series.
And I spoil some fights in three classic films. Coming into Nashville tonight, the Dallas Stars have six games left to leapfrog the Nashville Predators and claim that fourth spot in the Central and a berth to the Playoffs.
It wasn’t pretty- but for what felt like the first week all season, the Dallas Stars truly took care of business. Matched up with the rebuilding Detroit Red Wings in a playoff style four game home-and-home set, the Stars even ousted their overtime woes for a pair of wins beyond regulation and straight domination in Tuesday and Saturday’s wins.
The Dallas Stars, still chasing that evasive fourth playoff spot in the NHL’s Central Division, appear to be getting hot at the right time. Dallas has taken points in eight of its last ten, winning at a 6-2-2 clip in the month of April after falling below NHL .500 at the end of March.
