Not that we want anyone to feel old, but it's been 20 years since the Minnesota North Stars played their final game in the National Hockey League before owner Norm Green took them to Dallas.

Twenty years.

The final contest was in Detroit on April 15, 1993, a 5-3 loss to the Red Wings. That final year in Bloomington, the Stars would finish the regular season at 36-38-10 -- and would miss the playoffs by four points.

This is how radio announcer Al Shaver wrapped it up, via www.vintageminnesotahockey.com:

"It's Ludwig, giving it to Dahlen ... 4,3,2,1 ... and it's all over. The Stars lose it here, 5-3, and now it's pack-'em up time and on to Dallas. We wish them good luck. And to all the North Stars over the past 26 years, we say thank you, all of you, for so much fine entertainment. "It's been a pleasure knowing you, Minnesota's loss is definitely a gain for Dallas - and a big one. We thank you, though, from the bottoms of our hearts, for all the wonderful nights at Met Center, when you've given us so much entertainment and you've been such a credit to the community in which you played. We will still remember you as the Minnesota North Stars......"Good night, everybody. And goodbye."
