DALLAS (AP) - The Dallas Stars are taking their chase of the
Stanley Cup into the second round of the playoffs. The defending
champs are going home.
Stephane Robidas, playing with a cage covering his broken nose,
scored the tying goal on the power play early in the third period.
He then set up Stu Barnes for the go-ahead goal 52 seconds later to
send Stars past the Anaheim Ducks 4-1. That eliminates the Ducks in
The Ducks are the fifth straight defending Stanley Cup champions
to fail to make the second round. The NHL hasn't had a repeat
winner since Detroit in 1997-98.
