The Stars went on to win the game after Modano assisted on the first goal, scored the game tying goal with less than three minutes left and scored in the shootout.
How about that, Texas! Way to go, y'all. It hasn't been announced that this is Modano's final game, but either way, what an amazing display from the fans, opponents, staff at the American Airlines center, on-ice officials, broadcast team, and Modano himself.
Much more at Puck Daddy and Caps blog, but I didn't want this moment to pass unmentioned.
Also, if he DOESN'T leave, can this video be "exhibit A" at the pitch to hold next year's Winter Classic in Minnesota, with the Stars and the Wild?
