    I disagree Hidious, as an avid Stars fan I did not enjoy the first period..... :(

    It's great.

    (They play hockey down in Texas?)

    Remember the old joke? "I went to a boxing match the other night. . . and a hockey game broke out!"

    That was a bad goalie fight. Go back and watch Roy vs Vernon/ Osgood.

    I loved it. Being from Boston it was nice to see the Big Bad Bruins finally live up to their name. The best part is Dallas gets to go to Philly next and they are more physical then we are. Bet they cant wait to get back to the softer Western Conference teams.:)

    I've never really followed NHL but I've come to understand that fighting is legit? Is it really? Are their rules or something? Pretty damn funny to watch!

    Fighting is allowed in hockey. You get a 5 min major penalty for it but thats about it.

    Its used to shift momentum and to stop the cheap shots. It actually has lessened in the last few years which sucks. It keeps the cheap shoting goons somewhat honest if they know a bigger one is gonna be able to punch them in the face afterwords.
