Texas, St. John's to meet for Calder Cup
The Texas Stars advanced to play the St. John's IceCaps in the American Hockey League Calder Cup Finals by beating the Toronto Marlies on Tuesday.

The Texas Stars advanced to the Calder Cup Finals by beating the Toronto Marlies 6-2 on Tuesday night in Game 7 of the American Hockey League's Western Conference Final in Cedar Park, Texas.

Dustin Jeffrey scored twice in a six-goal blitz by the Stars that began late in the second period and wiped out Toronto's 2-0 lead.

The top affiliate of the Dallas Stars, led by second-year coach Willie Desjardins, finished with the best regular-season record in the AHL (48-18-3-7, 106 points), then beat Oklahoma City, Grand Rapids and Toronto to advance to the Calder Cup Finals for the second time in the franchise's five-year history.

The Stars will host the Eastern Conference-champion St. John's IceCaps, the top affiliate of the Winnipeg Jets, in Games 1 and 2 on Sunday and Monday. The IceCaps beat the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins in six games, wrapping up the series earlier Tuesday with a 5-0 victory in St. John's, Newfoundland. The third-year franchise, which won the Atlantic Division with a 46-23-2-5 record (99 points) is making its first trip to the Calder Cup Finals.

Quote of the Day

I don't have a crystal ball. Predicting is a real complicated thing. If we stay healthy, have enough depth and get the good goaltending we think we're going to have, you can go all the way. But a lot of things have to happen. There's going to be a lot of teams that think the same thing. Everyone made deals. We're all are optimistic about where we'll end up.
