Believing In The Stars

from Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News,

The Stars on Saturday were like Hercules visiting the Temple of Zeus, like Rapunzel getting a glimpse of that tile portrait. They still have many, many battles to fight. We estimated at the trade deadline that 54 points would be needed to get into the playoffs, that a 9-2-1 record was necessary down the stretch. This five-game winning streak makes that a 4-2-1 record now.

Is that reachable? Can they keep this up against Chicago and Vancouver and St. Louis and Los Angeles and San Jose and Columbus and Detroit? Could they even dream of moving into seventh place for a first-round playoff match-up with the Ducks? What if they really pull this off and become the hottest team in the NHL? What if they really make some noise in the playoffs?

Could they win the Stanley Cup?

What if they come out of nowhere with one of the greatest hero movies ever?

You really can start pondering those questions right now.
