In a shocking upset in the NHL playoffs, the Dallas Stars eliminated the Nashville Predators in six games thanks to a 2-1 win in overtime last night. Many people had the Predators going all the way to the Stanley Cup Finals this year, but in a season where almost every series has ended in an upset, the Predators fell to a team that they probably should have beat. The Stars will now have to do battle against the St-Louis Blues who have been one of the hottest teams in the league since the trade deadline.
Last night’s game was in Dallas and was attended by a couple of Cowboys stars. Of course, those two players were quarterback Dak Prescott and running back Ezekiel Elliott. Elliott and Prescott appeared on the Jumbotron at one point, which led to Prescott showering Zeke in popcorn as a nod to his infamous “feed me” celebration.
Clearly, the celebration motivated the Stars on the ice as they went on to win the game just a few minutes later. If the Cowboys make the playoffs next year, we might even see some Stars players take in a game at Jerry World to provide some of the same good luck charms.
For now, though, the Stars will definitely need some luck if they want to make it out alive against the Blues.
