The Dallas Stars started off the second half of the season the right way as they picked up a divisional win against the Predators 4-3. The Stars are looking to build some wins to start off the second half of the season. It might have not been a perfect victory against a divisional opponent, but I’ll take it. Here is what happened on Wednesday night as the Stars faced off against Nashville.
Dallas Stars vs Nashville Predators: 1st period recap
The Dallas Stars started a little slow out of the gate which is very usual for them. The first goal of the game came from no other than Jason Robertson around the 11 minute mark to make it 1-0 Dallas. However, Eeli Tolvanen would score near the end of the first period to tie the game at 1.
Both teams would go into the first intermission tied at 1. Both teams would be tied in shots on goal at 5 each and would be tied in face offs won at 9 each. Stars would need to show some life out there on the ice if they want to come away with a divisional win on home ice.
Dallas Stars vs Nashville Predators: 2nd period recap
Both teams decided to rack up the points in the 2nd period. Each team would score two goals each. Jason Robertson would score first in the second period and go on a hat trick watch. Nashville wouldn’t wait too long to score as Matt Duchene would tie it 19 seconds later to tie it at 2.
Roope Hintz would probably have the goal of the night as he made Saros look silly. The Stars wouldn’t have the lead much longer as Yakov Trinin would tie it at the end of the second period at 3. Both teams would be tied once again going into the second intermission. Stars would need to have another strong period like the second if they want to win this game.
Dallas Stars vs Nashville Predators: 3rd period recap
Only one player would score in the third period and it was none other than “offensive juggernaut” Luke Glendening. He would break the tie on a 2 on 1 breakaway and score the final goal of the game. Jake Oettinger would stop any chances by Nashville late in the third as the Stars go on to win 4-3.
It wasn’t a pretty win but Stars fans should be happy with the effort the Stars showed on the ice tonight. Stars don’t have long to celebrate as they welcome their divisional rival the Winnipeg Jets to the AAC Friday night.
