Stars Three Goal Third Pushes Them to Calder Cup Finals

The Texas Stars, in their first season, are headed to the Calder Cup Finals against the Hershey Bears (Washington Capitals).  The oldest team in the AHL against one of the newest; it's a battle for ages.  To get there, Texas had to get past Hamiton tonight.

The Stars were not looking good early in the game. Texas was down 2-0 at the halfway point of the second period and trailed in shots 28-5.  Then, everything turned around.  Ethan Graham, Perttu Lindgren, Mathieu Beaudoin, and Jamie Benn each scored to tack on 4 unanswered goal in the late second and into the third.  Benn's tallied sealed it with 90 seconds left in the game, and Curtis Sanford still in net. Your final score was a triumphant 4-2.

Right now, I don't really have words to describe the elation in Central Texas.  I hope those of you who listened or watched the game online enjoyed Texas Stars play-by-play man, Josh Fisher.  There were a lot of great comments about him on Twitter.

Hershey had the most points in the AHL this season, so they will have home ice advantage for the Finals.  Texas starts their series there for the Cup on June 3rd.  Full game recap on Hundred Degree Hockey.  Pictures and post game quotes sure to follow once Josh Fisher catches his breath.  What a game!
