Here is the 2016 Dallas Stars Qualifying Tournament in its entirety.

The 2nd-seeded ’02-’03 Dallas Stars dropped just two games here as they qualify for their third appearance in the Ultimate NHL Playoff. However, all four games in this sweep were decided by one goal. A PP goal in the third period from Mike Modano gave the ’02-’03 Stars a 2-1 win. GoaltenderEd Belfour made 38 saves in the loss for the 4th-seeded ’00-’01 Dallas Stars. The ’02-’03 Stars took a 2-0 series lead with a 3-2 win in Game 2. They led 2-0 in the third, but the ’00-’01 Stars tied it with nine plus minutes left before defenseman Derian Hatcher scored the game-winner with four and a half minutes remaining. Both teams scored twice in the first period of Game 3 and it remained tied until the start of the third period. Defenseman Darryl Sydor scored a PP goal just 16 seconds into the third period to give the ’00-’01 Stars a 3-2 lead. However, the ’02-’03 Stars ted the game back up a little over a minute later courtesy of Bill Guerin. Then, with just under seven minutes left, Hatcher scored his second game-winner in as many games as the ’02-’03 Stars won 4-3. The ’02-’03 Stars capped off the sweep with a 3-2 comeback win with Jere Lehtinen potting home the game-winner at the 12:15 mark of the third period.
