Stars Out (Together with the Lakers) In Their League’s “Semis” Again

September 13, 2020

The Dallas Stars, in their 11th NHL “semi” have a seemingly commanding 3 games to 1 lead over the Las Vegas Golden Knights after a (2-1) win last night in game 4.

Around the same time, the Los Angeles Lakers advanced to their first NBA semi-final round in 10 years, completing a 5 game quarterfinal series win vs the Houston Rockets.

Dallas (Stars) and the Lakers, each once located in Minneapolis (ever wonder about Lakers, in “no lakes” L.A.) have been in the semis together in 8 of the 11 appearances by the Stars nee Minnesota North Stars franchise. (For the record together in ’68, ’71, ’80,’84, ’91, ’00,’08 and 2020 and not in ’81, ’98 and ’99).

The late Kobe Bryant, tragically killed in a helicopter crash, earlier in fateful 2020, was on the Lakers’ title team in 2000, a year the Stars lost in the NHL final vs the New Jersey Devils.
