1W, no. 8; newsletter by h.s.)
There was confusion right from the start (we thought we were playing the Blackhawks, but they changed-up the sked and we faced the Stars who we had lost 5-1 to during the season). We played panicky right from the get-go and a rebound (in the opening :10 seconds), followed by a powerplay goal put us down 2-0 at the first break.
A terrible bounce squeezed through to put us 3-0 down at the 2nd break, and the Stars scored once more in the 3rd. We pressured great during the last two periods, but it seems like we were slightly more focused on ice time instead of scoring towards the end.
