Heading into tonights game, the Texas Stars' home ice advantage had some prior history on its side. They haven't lost a playoff game at home this season. Their opponents haven't beat them in Cedar Park since November 2012. They've only lost 9 of 42 home games this year on the whole. It's a scary situation to be in, and especially when you're the underdog. But the Toronto Marlies know all about overcoming the odds this year, and continued their run of unfathomable success, getting outshot by 31 but outscoring their opponents 5-1.

It's Friday again and I know how much you guys look forward to the weekly Nation Drafts update! As expected, I have absolutely nothing happening in my pool since the only player I have left is Drew Doughty. It's a sad state of affairs. I can't even blame Chris Kelly anymore since the Bruins are out. The only thing that would make me happy is if one of you had Dan Carcillo on your roster since he, quite possibly, got the dumbest 10 game suspension in the history of ice. Elbowing a linesman for reasons unknown? Genius!

"I've always believed that there's a fine line between cockiness and confidence, and we want to remain confident, but not cross over". These were the words of Steve Spott yesterday morning, as the team practiced at home for the last time before heading to Cedar Park, Texas to play the first game of the AHL's Western Conference Finals.

They're going in 7-0. Not bad for a team that wasn't expected to make the playoffs at all. But their new opponent is without a doubt, the toughest one yet.
