Radek Faksa played well for the Stars down the stretch and that has continued to be the case in the playoffs.

"He was big," coach Lindy Ruff said. "We'd been trying to get him all the experience we could get him this past couple of months, and he's really played well for us. We tried to keep everything as normal as possible and I just wanted to continue to play him and use him as I had been. He's been playing a big role for us in Tyler (Seguin)'s absence." Faksa contributed a goal and an assist in Round 1 against Minnesota. The Stars credit their depth with getting them this far and Faksa has meshed well with Antoine Roussel and Ales Hemsky.

Lindy Ruff was pleased with his young players' performance in Saturday's 3-0 win over the Islanders.

Faksa went head-to-head with [Frans] Nielsen and [Kyle] Okposo, and so did Johns. Okposo is a strong player and creates his own chances, and I thought those guys did an excellent job for us tonight."
