It's real now.
The Dallas Stars are off to the playoffs, after so many years of Stars fans rooting for a palatable team as a secondary option or not watching at all since the Stars weren't in the big dance. Luckily, we don't have to do that this season.
The Stars will start the first round on Wednesday, April 16th in Anaheim. The first home game in round one comes next Monday, April 21st. Here's the full schedule, including television information:
|Date||Time (CST)||Location||Television Network|
|Wednesday, April 16th||9:00 PM CST||@ Anaheim||NBCSN, TSN|
|Friday, April 18th||9:00 PM CST||@ Anaheim||NBCSN, TSN|
|Monday, April 21st||8:30 PM CST||vs Anaheim||NBCSN, TSN|
|Wednesday, April 23rd||7:00 PM CST||vs Anaheim||CNBC, TSN|
|Friday, April 25th*||9:30 PM CST||@ Anaheim||NBCSN, TSN|
|Sunday, April 27th*||TBD||vs Anaheim||TSN|
|Tuesday, April 29th*||TBD||@ Anaheim||TSB|
Here is the full schedule of the playoffs for each match-up in the first round.
Take note of the later than normal start time for the first home game of round 1 -- 8:30 PM CST. It is due to the television schedule. I expect the standard "late-arriving" crowd in Dallas to be very much on time for game one. Make it happen, Stars fans!
