Jamie Benn and Alex Goligoski celebrate Tyler Seguin’s winning goal in front of Penguins goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury in the final seconds of the third period Thursday, Oct. 16, 2014, at Consol Energy Center.
No, thank YOU for the incredible season. It legit sucks to eliminated on home ice, but I am so ridiculously proud of this Dallas Stars team. I can’t even begin to express how much love I have for this team. They overcame so much adversity this season to make it to the playoffs when everyone thought they wouldn’t make it. They forced a game 6 when people thought they’d get swept. This team brought playoff hockey back to Dallas. How can you not be proud of that? This team, especially the young players who have never seen playoff hockey, have finally gotten that taste. They’re going to come back hungrier than ever next year. This team is going to be a force to be reckoned with over the next several years and I can’t wait to watch them take the NHL by storm. The Stanley Cup will return to Dallas. May not be next year, but it will be in the next few years. And when that happens, I will be a flailing sobbing mess.
