Dallas block 5

STARS go 3-2 this homestand, losing heartbreaker in final minutes to the WILD!

 

BUFFALO- Early in period two, the guy known as “Colt 55” Parayko scored & that gave Dallas a 4-1 lead & the Stars bench was all giddy with the 3-Goal lead! Later in the period, the Sabres Ryan Ellis made it 4-2, then early in the 3rd period, on the Power-Play, Ellis ripped home another & Giddy left the bench,as the Sabres were within one! With their fingers crossed & getting outshot 14-4 in the Final period, the Stars hung on for the 4-3 Win & break their 2-game losing streak at home! Coach Dale Hunter “It looked like we tried to kill a 20 minute penalty in the 3rd, Dump it out & no attack, We got Lucky”

 

TORONTO- The Leafs just couldnt stay out of the “Sin Bin”, as they took the game’s 1st half-dozen minors & Brad Marchand made em pay! Marchand had the 1st “Hat Trick” by a Stars player this season & two of his tallies came on the Power-Play! Toronto didnt get many scoring opportunities(two ratings) in the 4-2 loss!

 

 

TAMPA BAY- The game was tied at two early in the 2nd period but then the Stars lit up Marc-Andre Fleury, torching him for five more scores in a 7-3 romp! Defense partners Erik Karlsson & Jake Muzzin each had a Goal & 2 Assists while Brad Marchand remained Hot, knocking in two more Goals & adding an assist!

 

 

WINNIPEG- The Jets ground the Stars 4-1 as John Gibson takes home 1st Star honors! Jay Beagle scored in the 3rd period to break Gibson’s bid for the Shutout! Ryan Spooner & the “Bread Man” (Panarin) each had a Goal & assist as the Jets dominated in this contest! Dam Hamhuis was the Unsung Hero on defense laying out 4 crushing hits on Dallas players!

 

 

MINNESOTA- With just over two minutes to play & the score tied at three, a complete hush came over the crowd, as Ryan Suter blew a one-timer by Bobrovsky to give the Wild the lead! Just 34 seconds later, it looked like a fire drill, as the crowd started to empty American Airlines Arena as Bryan Rust beat Bobrovsky thru the 5-hole & the Wild prevail 5-3! Jonathan Quick made 23 saves in the 3rd period & 43 for the game(9/11 gr’s & Arvidsson 1-9 & Karlsson 1-12) & got mobbed by his teammates as the final buzzer sounded! Coach Hunter post game quipped ” Maybe Bob is tired, he’s started quite a few lately, but that was a real stinker for him(3/7 gr’s),He let us down tonight”
