Stargazing, A Dallas Stars Puckcast – Episode 114: Hail And Farewell

New, comments

This improbable Stanley Cup run wasn’t nothing. It just wasn’t the something we were hoping for. Robert sums it up.

NHL: Stanley Cup Final-Tampa Bay Lightning at Dallas Stars Perry Nelson-USA TODAY Sports

The Dallas Stars made a lot of magic during this improbable run to the Stanley Cup Final. They beat two heavy Cup favorites in the Colorado Avalanche and Vegas Golden Knights. They won that Western Conference championship that has seemed so close, yet so far, for so long.

They’d also had quite a bit of it beaten out of them by the end – and let’s face it, this injury-depleted roster probably never should have gotten to Game 6 against a Tampa Bay Lightning squad that probably should have won it all last year.

Robert offers a soliloquy on what has been, what could (almost certainly) never be, and what lies ahead. Put on your headphones and turn down your lights, because here’s your post-playoffs Afterwords: Nights.
