For additional insight into the Western Conference Second Round series between the Dallas Stars and St. Louis Blues, NHL.com has enlisted the help of Gary Agnew to break down the action. Agnew will be checking in throughout the playoffs.
Agnew, 55, was an assistant with the Pittsburgh Penguins, Blues and Columbus Blue Jackets. He also served as interim coach of the Blue Jackets for five games during the 2006-07 season, and has been coach of Syracuse of the American Hockey League and London and Kingston of the Ontario Hockey League.
DALLAS -- The way Game 7 started was, in the end, far from where it finished. When it started, both teams had energy, with the Dallas Stars skating well and creating chances and the St. Louis Blues doing the same, with the opportunity for a good, well-played, tight game still a possibility.
