Was the Stars series win over Anaheim a surprise?

Not really since the series pitted a four-seed against a five-seed and seedings in the NHL don't really mean anything anyway. Unlike the NBA, an eight-seed beating a one-seed in the NHL doesn't really surprise too many people.

Not only that, the Mighty Ducks were the defending NHL champs, and the holders of the Stanley Cup have lost in the first round of the subsequent playoffs the last five years.
