The Dallas Stars got off to one of the worst starts in franchise history this year as they picked just one win through their first eight games and three through their first 10.
But it’s not about how you start, it’s about how you finish, and now the Stars are just four wins away from taking home the second Stanley Cup in franchise history after defeating the Vegas Golden Knights in five games.
Once the Golden Knights got on the board it stayed like that for a while until they added to their lead with their second of the night. However, the Stars did what they’ve done in a lot of the games this postseason and season, and that’s find a way to come back late for the win.
The Stars weren’t picked as the favourites in the Calgary series, definitely weren’t picked as the favourites in the Colorado series, and certainly weren’t the favourites in the Vegas series, but that didn’t stop them from getting to where they are now.
It’s Dallas’ first trip to the Stanley Cup Final in 20 years and they’ll play either the Tampa Bay Lightning or New York Islanders.
