For me, living just 25 minutes north of the city, those battles were pretty vital as to whether I had a good next few months or bad. Obviously I'm in enemy territory here so losing has big time consequences. Everyone knows me as the big time Stars fan so I would catch so much flak. 1997 was awful but we got revenge in 98,99,2000,01,03, and about every regular season game as well. It was sweet.
