Stars/Ducks Rematch

by Beth

This morning, I flash back to that sad April day,
When the Anaheim Ducks abruptly ended our play.
The Stars were up 4-2 and things were looking fine…
Only 2 minutes left, everyone was having a great time!
But as fate would have it, the Ducks would score twice more,
Sending us to overtime…..and then once more they scored.
Out of the Playoffs, we were over and done.
That being said, that round one sure was fun.
Now it is a new season, some things have greatly changed,
New players have come but the sting of defeat remains.
I expect for the fans to be rowdy and loud.
Our boys still have reasons to be proud!
We will be on the lookout for dirty plays tonight,
I expect there will probably be at least one fight.
Corey Perry should wear earplugs to drown out the jeers,
And certainly Getzlaff, Smith-Perry & Maroon won’t get cheers.
The goal of the game is to play smart and be quick,
It’s Halloween, I want treats and no tricks!
The Ducks lost last night, I hope they are tired.
Ours fans will be loud and the crowd will be wired!
This season is still new, so I think we are in luck,
I don’t want any Ducks in the way of our pucks.
Our offense is solid, the defense needs to step up.
We must get closer to lifting the Stanley Cup!
GO STARS!!!!

Dallas Stars Season Opener Poem!

by Beth

Opening day is finally here!
Put on your jersey and grab a beer!
The summer was a long but busy one,
Time to test what Jim Nill has done.
The pieces of our puzzle appear to fit just fine, I believe we have four
terrific lines!
Can’t wait to see the magic of Seguin & Benn, And I’m expecting a great year for
Val Nichuskin!
With the awesome addition of Hemsky and Spezza, Our opponents should be fearful!
Yep, you betcha!
Finally got Dillon and Eakin signed,
I really think our Stars are aligned!
I can’t say enough about Fiddler and Roussel.
They give our team a spark, I hope they both do well.
Kari struggled a bit in the pre-season,
But worry? Right now I have no reason.
We fans are super excited and hyped up!
Tonight begins our quest for the Stanley Cup!
GO STARS!

Game 5 Tonight!!!! It’s gonna be BIG!

by Beth

What a great week this has been!

Our boys came home and got two wins!

Playoff fever has hit my house BIG!

If these boys keep winning, I’ll be dancing a jig!

Game 4 was awesome with four great goals!

There might have been one or two more if they hadn’t hit the post.

What can I say about Jamie Benn?

He makes huge plays again and again.

Our guys are not huge, but they are gritty!

For the baby ducks, I have no pity.

I think Garbutt and Roussel have gotten under their skin,

Ruffled their feathers, even scared away their Fin!

Everybody ropes and everybody rides,

The Stars motto this year and it’s said with pride!

Each player is stepping up their game.

Hopefully within weeks, all will know their names.

Jordie Benn, Eakin, Goligoski and Fiddler….

They are more perplexing to the Ducks than the riddler!

Game 5 tonight will be late again.

Take a nap today, then stay up with your friends.

This is the time of year we never give up…..

The quest continues for the Stanley Cup!!!!

GO STARS!!!!

Stars vs. Ducks…..Playoff Game 4

by Beth

Wow, what a game on Monday night!

Our Dallas Stars were shining bright!

The crowd was loud, the AAC rocked!

And every shot launched at Kari was blocked!

Our team is alive, we fans have hope.

We have no reason yet to mope!

So much happened in playoff game 3,

Anaheim thinks the Stars play dirty.

But it was Getzlaf who threw the very first punch,

If you’re gonna play hockey, don’t be a wuss!

The Ducks have whined to the referees,

That the Stars aren’t polite, they’re not saying please.

This is the playoffs, the game is tough.

Don’t whine and cry if you can’t play rough.

 

The worst part of the game was a bad injury,

To Stephane Robidas, who used to be on our team.

Bless his heart, his leg broke again.

I can’t believe this happened to him.

I don’t feel that Garbutt intended to harm him.

Some things just happen, I’m so sorry he’s hurtin’.

For Game 4 I will be in the building.

I really can’t wait, my excitement won’t be yielding!

I’m hoping for a victory to tie the series up.

There is nothing quite like the playoffs for the Stanley Cup!

GO STARS!!!!!

 

Poem for 4/21: Playoff Hockey in Dallas!!!!

by Beth

Playoff Hockey in Dallas Tonight!!!!

 

Tonight the Ducks come to skate on our pond,

The will to win for our team must be strong.

It’s not easy to be down by 2 games.

But our team has been able to make some small gains.

I expect big things from our Captain Benn,

Garbutt & Eakin, Sceviour & Seguin!

Of course Kari will have to be spot on,

The energy will be high, there will be no reason to yawn.

There is playoff hockey in our city again,

We’ve got to get ourselves a win.

Put on your victory green and jump up!

The Stars are playing for the Stanley Cup!
