95 Thousand Of You Stayed Up For Stars Hockey

95 thousand TV viewers around DFW stayed up late to watch the Stars beat the Sharks in Game 6 according to Barry Horn of the Dallas Morning News.

I was one of them. 1:24 am is what my cell phone read when Brendan Morrow scored in the 4th Overtime.

Stars Advance In Playoffs…Thank Goodness

I didn’t want to see the Stars lose at home and go to the O.C. for Game 7 against the Ducks.  I just didn’t want to see that.   The odds would have been against them.

Stars co-GM Brett Hull said as much before the game.  We got a chance to talk hockey.  Hull is such a great guy and he truly cares about the game of hockey. 

Hull said it’s tough to watch from the press box because he sees things on the ice and he can’t do a thing about it.  

The Stars came out and won Game 6 with a tremendous 52 seconds of play in the final period.  Down 1-0 the scored on a power play and came right back and scored the game winner.

They shut things down behind goalie Marty Turco and ended the series with a 4-1 win.

Stephane Robidas was the hero with the 1st goal and an assist on Stu Barnes game winner.

So the Stars advance to the semi finals for the first time in five years.   TSN has a nice write up about the series clincher as well.
