The Dallas Stars and St. Louis Blues made it through Round 1 and
are ready to do battle in an effort to get to the Conference Final.
Goaltending for both teams will be the key! The Blues won the
season series and swept Dallas the last time these two teams met in
the playoffs back in 2001.
The Stars won the Central Division, finishing two points ahead
of St. Louis securing home-ice advantage through the conference final
on the strength of their 50-win season.
The Blues were involved in a classic series against the Chicago
Blackhawks, winning in an epic Game 7. To say St. Louis is
battle-hardened would be an understatement. Dallas had an easier time
with the Minnesota Wild, although that series had its moments of
excitement, chaos and doubt as well.
Will St. Louis continue its regular-season dominance, or can the
Stars figure out a way to win in the postseason?
Will Tyler Seguin regain his top in the lead goals scoring?
Can the Blues keep up with the high-powered Dallas offense?
How much will special teams impact this series?

suspense and apprehension that comes with game seven, both teams took
the ice in the first period with no intentions of making a
mistake.Chad Costello scored his first of the playoffs on a beautiful
passing play with David Makowski to tie the game at 1-1. As amazing as
a stressful game seven is, it can only amplify in overtime, which is
exactly what resulted after 60 minutes had passed with a 2-2 tie.The
heart pounding angst of overtime would soon turn into pure elation for
the loud Americans crowd, as Tristan King tapped a stroke of good
fortune. . Team captain and integral playmaker Chad Costello knew that
this was a team that was built to survive the enduring playoff series.
I know we have the heart of a champion &the third period and the
overtime really showed our heart. Allen will move on to play familiar
foe, the Missouri Mavericks, in the second round.With the overtime
win, Allen will advance on to play the Missouri Mavericks in Round 2.
Below are the dates and times of ECHL Semifinal Series.
