Despite the series outcome, it was the 6th-seeded ’93-’94 Stars that took the opening game. They trailed the 3rd-seeded ’07-’08 Stars 5-3 after two periods, but the ’93-’94 Stars rallied off three goals in the third, including two from Neal Broten, to come back for a 6-5 win. Then, in Game 2, the ’07-’08 Stars held a 3-2 lead after two periods, and, again, the ’93-’94 Stars scored early in the third to tie the game thanks to Broten, again. Mike Modano scored nine minutes later to give the ’93-’94 Stars their first lead since 3:51 of the first period. However, a minute and a half later, Jeff Halpern tied the game for the ’07-’08 Stars and then less than a minute after that Brenden Morrow scored his third goal of the game to seal a 5-4 comeback win.

The ’07-’08 Stars carried over that momentum from late in Game 2 into Game 3 as they took a 2-1 series lead with a 5-2 win. Morrow and Mike Ribeiro combined for three goals and five assists in the win. Those two then accounted for all three goals for the ’07-’08 Stars in a 3-1 win in Game 4. Now one loss away from elimination, the ’93-’94 Stars put out their best effort in Game 5 as they won 6-2 after trailing 2-1 at the start of the second period. They scored four times in the second and two of those came from Ulf Dahlen. Dave Gagner and Russ Courtnall led them in the win as they both totaled three points. The series ended the very next game, though, as the ’07-’08 Stars scored twice in the third to win 4-2.
