The Dallas Stars got all they wanted from the second wild card team in the West, as the Minnesota Wild played like anything but an eight-seed in the quarterfinal round. The Stars went up 2-0 in the games in Dallas and then got a split in Minnesota, but then an overtime home loss sent the game back up north for Game 6. The Stars led that game 4-0 after two periods, but then a ferocious Wild comeback brought it to 4-3 and then 5-4, as Dallas held on with the whitest of knuckles to advance to the semifinals. Let’s take a look at some reasons to pick the Stars to knock off the two-seed in the West as they take on the St. Louis Blues, who eliminated the Chicago Blackhawks in an epic seven-game march.
