Dallas Stars vs St Louis Blues: 2nd period recap
The Stars needed to come out strong which they did and got some pretty good shots on Lindgren which didn’t go in the net. Logan Brown was able to score 4 minutes into the second period to get the Blues on the board 1-0. Hintz saved probably would have been a 2-1 breakaway goal on the Stars powerplay off a turnover.
Denis Gurianov got tripped and sent the Stars on a late power play attempt and they would fail to score on it. Vladimir Tarasenko scored with 10 seconds left in the 2nd to give the Blues a 2-0 lead going into the second intermission. The Stars trail once again in the shots on goal category 21-15.
The 2nd period has been a legitimate disaster for the Stars tonight. It felt like I was watching a beer league hockey game where the players casually skate up and down the ice and attempt to score goals.
Dallas Stars vs St Louis Blues: 3rd period recap
The Stars started the third like they did in the 2nd period, sluggish. Dakota Joshua would send the Stars to another power play. Pavel Buchnevich would get a penalty shot after getting interfered with on a breakaway shot and would be denied by Holtby. Jason Robertson was finally able to get one past Lindgren and made it a 2-1 game late in the 3rd.
However, Vladimir Tarasenko would put the game away on the power play as the Blues win 3-1 against the Stars. Stars have a quick turnaround as they take on the Chicago Blackhawks tomorrow night in Chicago.
