Stars win finale over Chicago
Got a little momentum headed into the playoffs. Stars fell down 2-1 midway through the 3rd and then a minute later, tied it back up. Then with about 3 mins to go...Modano hit the game winner. 'Bout time the regular season is over. They need to knock this and the NBA back to about a 62 game season.
Now a little rant. I think the point system in the NHL sucks. Never really paid much attention to it before, but now that the Stars are sixth and Anaheim is 1st, it really strikes me that it doesn't make sense. Stars finished the season with 50 wins and Anaheim with 48. Stars should be ahead of Anaheim. Wouldn't have made too much difference since San Jose finished with 51 wins. But check out the Stars/Vancouver upcoming series. Vancouver only finished with 49 wins...thus the Stars would be ahead of them too. I don't think you should get extra points JUST because you managed to force OT in a game before eventually losing. Stars won more games therefore I think they deserve home ice advantage. Off the soap box now.
