Edmonton Oilers vs. Dallas Stars playoff history

The Edmonton Oilers and Dallas Stars have met in six playoff series, all of which took place between 1997 and 2003.

The first series between the teams was in the 1997 first round, where the Oilers won in seven games. Doug Weight led the Oilers with eight points in the series, and the trio of Ryan Smyth, Andrei Kovalenko and Mike Grier led the team with three goals each.

The following postseason, the Stars beat the Oilers in five games in the 1997 Conference Semifinals. Edmonton scored just five goals in the five-game series as Dallas goaltender Ed Belfour posted a .967 save percentage.

Dallas swept the Oilers in the 1998 first round. Each game was separated by just one goal, but three goals from Stars center Joe Nieuwendyk, a .925 save percentage from Belfour and a 149-93 series shot advantage made the difference.

In the first round in 2000, the Stars won again, this time in five games. Winger Brett Hull, late in his career at this point, found the net three times after going scoreless in the previous year's Stars-Oilers series. Belfour was solid in goal again, and Dallas had 11 different goalscorers in the series.

Dallas won its fourth straight series against the Oilers in 2001 in six games. Hull, Mike Modano and Sergei Zubov each had a team-leading five points while Edmonton wing Ryan Smyth led the series with seven points. Oilers' goalie Tommy Salo posted a higher save percentage than Belfour, but Dallas winning the shots battle 188-152 helped give them the edge.

Both teams missed the playoffs in 2002, but Dallas beat Edmonton again in the 2003 first round. Zubov and Modano had 10 points each, with both players splitting it between four goals and six assists. Salo didn't play well in goal for the Oilers, and Dallas scoring seven power play goals to the Oilers' one proved the difference in the six-game series.
