The Texas Stars (41-29-4-6, 92 pts, #4 West) completed their regular season on Sunday with a playoff spot already secured. Coming into the final game, there were 10 possible combinations for the final seeding in the West Conference. With the Oklahoma City Barons and Stars losing on Sunday, Texas will now play the Milwaukee Admirals in the first round.

The Admirals are a good matchup for the Stars. Despite the Ads' spot as the #1 team in the West, the Stars have taken five of six from the Predator's farm club. Certainly it is a better matchup than the alternative of Houston, who Texas struggled against this season mightily. Tickets are on sale now, and Texas is only a short jaunt down I-35.

The Stars biggest news in the past week, aside for the playoff clinch, was the addition of Scott Glennie on an amateur tryout contract. The Dallas Stars' first round draft pick from 2009 played in the last four games of the season. He has not registered a point and is minus-2 with 2 PIMs.
