We're rolling out a special feature this summer here at Defending Big D: Dallas Stars Play Of The Year. We want to put it to the Stars fans and the readers of DBD to determine just which play was truly the most exciting, the most game-changing of the season. We're going to break it down by month, picking a winner for October, November, December, etc before having a vote among all the winners for each month. We'll present a video highlight of each play and you -- the readers --- will vote on the winner.
The winter rolls on into January. My favorite moment of this month? The pre-game "rumble" at center ice between the Atlanta Thrashers and our Dallas Stars. It made it even more awesome that we stomped them into the ground that night with a crushing 6-1 win (and we all know how rare those multi-goal wins are/were....)
On with voting!! Tell us which is your play of the month. Videos are after the jump. As always, feel free to debate the selections in the comment section. If you find a big play I might have overlooked, link to that one and I'll add it to the list.
