The Dallas Stars shocked a lot of people within the hockey community by taking down the Nashville Predators in the opening round of the playoffs and now they’ll look to keep rolling against the St. Louis Blues in the second round.

There’s still a lot of work to be done before they can sit back and relax, but since it’s the first time the team has advanced to the second round since the 2015-16 season they’re feeling pretty loose. On Wednesday, Stars head coach Jim Montgomery spoke to the media and dropped a joke about an injury that Alex Radulov is currently dealing with.


Everybody's got jokes these days, including Monty 😂 @radulov22

Radulov, who scored four goals and totaled six points in six games and had a point in every game but Game 2, joked about carrying the team through the first round and his coach decided to use his joke during the press conference.

Tyler Seguin, Jamie Benn and John Klingberg totaled six points each as well in the opening series, but Radulov’s four goals are a team-high.
