Dallas Stars

Dak, Zeke and Cowboys teammates help Stars prevail in Game 4

Monday it was Dirk Nowitzki.

On Wednesday it was Dak Prescott, Ezekiel Elliott, Jason Witten and a host of other Dallas Cowboys cheering on the Dallas Stars in their Game 4 playoff win at American Airlines Center.

Prescott and Elliott talked to the Stars in their locker room and stayed late after the game. Elliott even wanted a picture with the Stars’ Finnish players because his dad played professional basketball in Finland, Stars coach Jim Montgomery said.

“Some of it I can’t translate for the public. It was nice,” Montgomery said. “They were into it. Zeke ad Dak were really into it. They spoke to the team. It was nice to see that kind of camaraderie. Everybody on our team is a fan.”

Both Prescott and Elliott took turns pumping up the crowd on the AAC video board during the game. And after the win, they posed for pictures with Stars’ players, including Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn.
