The young Dallas Stars began this season just hoping to make the playoffs and end a franchise-record postseason drought.
Lindy Ruff figures anyone who has watched the Dallas Stars in their first two playoff games should know they won't quit.

After the morning skate, captain Jamie Benn vowed that the Dallas Stars would play to honor ill teammate Rich Peverley.
Stars forward Rich Peverley remained hospitalized Tuesday in Dallas, undergoing heart tests after collapsing on the bench during a game that was postponed a night earlier.
Dallas Stars GM Jim Nill said Tuesday that Peverley is in stable condition and has been communicating with teammates and friends since he was hospitalized Monday night.

"That's a situation I look back on and that's totally in Rich's hands - Rich's hands and the doctor's hands," Ruff said. "Sometimes I look at it that it's in God's hands too."
"I trusted every one of them. We have a system to play and they know how to play it," Ruff said. "We've set our bar at a certain level now. Now we have to push above that. And that takes incredible work ethic. It is hard to get in the playoffs. You know that. I know that."
