As Tracey said in the post before this one, the Stars are headed back to Dallas for Game 6 on Monday. You can buy tickets for Game 5 here. Don't forget - the puck drops at 7 p.m. on Monday, and after a nice respite to NBC, the game will be broadcast on VERSUS (yes, I can hear you all groaning from here). But hey, at least they say it will be in HD!
And I gotta tell ya ... to use my least favorite sports cliche, I've drank the Kool-Aid. If the Stars come out with the same fire and intensity as they had in Game 5, we may be looking at only the third team in Stanley Cup Playoff history to come back from a 3-0 deficit. I'm only a hockey newbie, but it sure seemed like the Stars and the Red Wings swapped personalities in Game 5. And the NBC guys had it right -- the Red Wings were skating scared. Why? Who knows. Certainly they had nothing to be afraid of, with Marty Turco being winless at the Joe.
If you haven't been, be sure to check out the Party in the Plaza at the AAC before Game 6 on Monday. Or make plans to attend the Game 7 watching party -- kudos to the Stars for putting out a great, free event for the fans to celebrate and enjoy the game.
And a shout-out to the Five for Fighting readers that I met today! I can't wait to see those Flat Stanley pictures!
Keep checking our Stars page for what the papers in Detroit are saying after the Stars' 2-1 victory in Game 5. And I'll try to rustle up some postgame quotables and notables for ya.
