The captain continues to lead. The ’02-’03 Dallas Stars are onto the 3rd Round thanks to Mike Modano. The Stars found themselves down 2-1 in the series and Modano scored an overtime game-winner in Game 4 to tie the series up at two. After posting 12 points in the 1st Round, Modano posted 10 points (five goals and five assists) here in the 2nd to lead the Stars offensively. Defenseman Derian Hatcher also played a big part offensively as he posted three goals and four assists for seven points in the six games after posting just three assists in the 1st Round. Fellow defenseman Sergei Zubov also had good series offensively, posting two goals and five assists for seven points. Goaltender Marty Turco didn’t have as good a series as he did in the 1st Round, but still had a good series posting a 2.17 goals against average and a .922 save percentage.

The ’34-’35 Montreal Maroons were one goal away from taking a 3-1 series lead in Game 4, but weren’t able to and wound up losing the next two games. They were lead by a balanced scoring attack with only two players not registering a point, including goaltender Alex Connell. They had three players tied for the team in lead in scoring with five points, winger Earl Robinson, Hall of Fame center Hooley Smith and winger Herb Cain. Robinson lead the team in goal scoring with three and Smith led the team in assists with six. Defenseman Cy Wentworth also had a good series, posting one goal and two assists for three points with a +5 rating. In net, Connell, saw more shots than his counterpart but still put up a solid save percentage at .926% to go along with a 3.00 goals against average.
