• Prior to the season, in a compromise brokered with the NHL, North Stars owners George and Gordon Gund sell their shares of the team in order to start up a new team in the San Francisco Bay Area -- a market they abandoned in 1976 when they moved the California Golden Seals to Cleveland.

• The North Stars would win only 27 games and amass 68 points in the regular season, but that was good enough for them to sneak into the playoffs as the fourth place team in the Norris Division. They made the most out of their postseason experience, advancing all the way to the Stanley Cup Final, where they would eventually lose to the Mario Lemieux-led Pittsburgh Penguins -- who won their first Cup in franchise history -- in six games.
