It\'s Playoff Time!
It’s simply the best time of the year for hockey fans. The 2008 Stanley Cup Playoffs begin this Wednesday and Thursday around the league, and once again the Dallas Stars are playing in the post-season. The Stars have qualified for the playoffs for the fifth consecutive campaign and for the 10th time in the last 11 seasons.

The Stars are the fifth seed in the Western Conference and will face the Anaheim Ducks, who finished with the fourth seed.

The series will begin in Anaheim for the first two games, with the series opener this coming Thursday, April 10 (9 pm CT). Game Two is scheduled for Saturday, April 12 (9 pm CT).

Games Three and Four will be played at American Airlines Center in Dallas, scheduled for Tuesday, April 15 (7:30 pm CT), and Thursday, April 17 (7 pm CT).

Game Five will be in Anaheim on Friday, April 18 (9:30 pm CT), with Game Six in Dallas on Sunday, April 20 (time TBD).

If the series goes to a Game Seven, it will be played on Tuesday, April 22 in Anaheim (time TBD).

 The Stars hosted the Sharks in the regular season finale on Sunday, winning by a score of 4-2. Dallas finishes the regular season with a record of 45-30-7, the team’s 10th 40-win season since 1996-97. American Airlines Center was already sporting Stars super graphics of Mike Modano and Brenden Morrow on the west side of the building while Stanley Cup Playoff pole banners surrounded the arena with the 2008 post-season theme Believe.

“We’re excited about starting the playoffs,” said Morrow. “It’s what we play for and we know our fans will be behind us to give us a real home-ice advantage for games in Dallas. We’re looking forward to it.”
