The 1998–99 Dallas Stars season was the Stars' sixth season in Dallas, Texas, and the thirty-second of the franchise. The most important aspect of the season was trying to follow up on the near trip to Cup from last year, which they would reach, facing the Buffalo Sabres. They would defeat the Sabres to win the first Stanley Cup for the Stars in franchise history with a controversial overtime goal. That spawned a new rule within the NHL, the infamous "no goal" ruling is still talked about today.
