Game 4 - The only OT game of the series ended with 31 seconds left in the first OT period, when Chris Drury kept the Avs in the series, sending them to a 3-2 victory.
Game 5 - In what many Stars fans will remember as the most craziest game of the 99 playoff series, the Stars saw two of their goals taken away and two goals that counted for the Avs that shouldn't of...as the Avs took a 3-2 series lead with a 7-5 victory in Dallas.
Game 6 - After 1 period, Stars fans began to worry trailing 1-0 but goals from Lehtinen, Matvichuk, and two from Langenbrunner escape denver with a 4-1 win.
Game 7 - Stars dominated the Colorado in one Stars fans will say was the loudest game ever at Reunion Arena. Goals by Langenbrunner, Lehtinen, and two from Keane gave the Stars to the victory, sending the team to their first Cup final in Dallas.

2004 [Colorado wins series 4-1]
Game 1 - With the series opening in Denver, the Avs dominated the Stars..giving them no room to move anywhere on the ice, and sending the Avalanche to a 3-1 victory.
Game 2 - Things got worse for the Stars as the Avs completely shut down the Stars in every way possible, sending the Avs to another 5-2 victory.
Game 3 - While the Stars barely could move a muscle, the Stars finally were able to generate enough chances and hold the Avs on defense. After being down 3-2 most of the game, the Stars got a late goal to send the game into overtime. 2:11 into the overtime period, Steve Ott rushed down the ice with two Avalanche on his back and put it in the back of the net to give the Stars hope and bring them back into the series.
Game 4 - Colorado continued to shut down the Stars offense and held a 2-0 lead late in the 2nd period. But a powerplay goal by Scott Young with less than 5 seconds to go in the 2nd gave the Stars hope, and Turgeon tied the game up late in the 3rd to send the game into another overtime session. But this time, 20 extra minutes couldn't decide it. Svatos ended the Stars hopes 5:18 into the 2nd OT period to give the Avs a 3-2 victory.
Game 5 - Back home in Denver, the Avs finished it off like they started it with a dominating, and embarassing 5-1 victory over the Stars to win the series 4-1.
2006 [Colorado leads series 3-1]
Game 1 - After a sell out AAC and the Stars were full of confidence and with Dallas holding a 2-0 lead, Colorado took control of the game. With a goal late in the period, the Avs struck for 3 goals in the 2nd period and an early 3rd period goal to put 5 on the board and take a 1-0 lead in the series. Colorado never let Dallas going after a 2-0 lead for the Stars, and pampered Turco for 31 shots on net while Dallas managed only 18 the entire game, 9 of them coming in the 3rd period alone. Morrow and Guerin go the Stars two goals while Hejduk, Wolski, Blake, Liles, and Clark got on the board for Colorado.
Game 2 - Utter disappointment filled the AAC, as the Stars came out to yet the flattest they have all season. Colorado ended the first period with a 3-0 lead, with goals from Blake, Brunette, and Hejduk. With a 3-0 lead, and Dallas clinging to the series, the Stars came out soaring in the 2nd period. With three goals in 4 minutes from Jokinen and two from Lehtinen, the Stars struck back to tie the game 3-3. With 3 seconds to go in the period, the Dallas Stars took their first lead of the game with a goal by Mike Modano on the powerplay. The goal went underreview but was ruled a goal to give the Stars a 4-3 lead. Dallas kept the lead the entire third period until Clark capped off a shorthanded goal with 2:04 left in the game to tie the game at four apiece. As the game went into overtime, Jason Arnott flew down the ice only to hit the post, moving the entire net. As the Stars rushed back, Niko Kapanen turned the back over and it cost Dallas the game. Hejduk shot the puck only to see it deflect off Sakic's stick into the back of the net to give Colorado a 5-4 victory.
Game 3 - In a must win situation, the Dallas Stars let Colorado do exactly what they did in Game 2 and that was score first. Sakic scored 5:21 into the game, a powerplay goal, to give the Avalanche a 1-0 lead. After the Colorado attack continued, the Stars finally were able to produce a chance and it paid off. A shorthanded chance between Stu Barnes and Brenden Morrow, gave Dallas a goal and sent the game into a tie. With the Stars looking like they would go into the 1st intermission with a tie, Alex Tanguay had a different thought on his mind. With 1:07 left in the first, Tanguay was able to get a puck past Turco to take the 2-1 lead. In the 2nd, Dallas dominated once again as they had in Game 2..scoring two goals and outshooting the Avs 11-6. With goals from Klemm and Zubov, Dallas took a 3-2 lead into the 3rd..much like Game 2. And the game ended the exact same way. With 57 seconds left in regulation, a pass deflected off Modano's skate and right to Colorado Avalanche Andrew Brunette who shot it into the net for the powerplay goal and the 3-3 tie. It didn't take long for the Avs to capitalize in overtime. 1:09 in, Tanguay's pass deflected off Mitchell's skate right past Turco to give Colorado the 4-3 win.
Game 4 - Being down 3-0 for the first time since 2001, the Stars started the game the same they started game 2 and 3...being scored on. Brad Richardson needed only 4:46 to punch the puck past Marty Turco in Game 4 to give the Avs, and another sell out Pepsi Center, the 1-0 lead. Andrew Laaksonen passed the puck to a wide open Brad Richardson, who one-timed it into the net. After that, Turco shut the door. 7:35 into the 1st period, Modano Jokinen and Lehtinen flew down the ice. With a pass from Zubov, Modano passed the puck to Jere Lehtinen who was going down the slot and punched it pass Thedore to tie the game. In the 2nd period, Dallas contained control outshooting the Avalanche 19-6 in the period and ouscoring them 2-0. With two goals from Hagman and another powerplay goal from Bill Guerin, Dallas moved onto win the game 4-1. Marty Turco ended the night with 22 saves on the night.
