DALLAS -- The Dallas Stars are one game from clinching their first playoff series win since 2008, and coach Lindy Ruff wants to see his team finish the job against the Minnesota Wild in Game 5 on Friday night at American Airlines Center.
"Well, I've always said when you have a chance to get it done, you've got to get it done," Ruff said, "because when you don't, all it does is it shifts momentum the other direction. They [the Wild has] got their backs up against the wall, they have nothing to lose. They're on the brink [of elimination]."
