PLAYOFF SERIES STORYLINES
Will Dallas be able to upset the #1 seed Minnesota Wild, who are also defending Cup champs?
Pierre-Marc Bouchard and Marian Gaborik vs Minnesota - These two were prominent players in the State of Hockey, will this put a little more pep in their step? Make them finish their checks more? Taunt the crowd in their goal celebrations?
Will Minnesota use their bitterness and resentment as fuel for losing the North Stars franchise to Dallas?
Will Bryan McCabe and his exquisite shower presence be able to boost the Stars over the hump?
And biggest storyline of all....will Loui Eriksson and the feud with the Stars ex-management over 500K end up haunting Dallas? Will Loui have that fire lit under him to beat the team that rid of him over pennies? The contract feud that ended up shaking the entire Stars organization along with the entire league of RGMG - you have to think this series is Loui Eriksson's Stanley Cup of revenge and it is Dallas' most important series to shut up Eriksson and especially the agent for tacking on that extra 500K.
The storylines are hot and heavy with this series and all eyes will be on this one as the playoffs get underway.
