The Dallas Stars fought through a huge moment in the game that I will mention down below. before I get to that, Roope Hintz and Jason Robertson extend their point streaks to 10 games as the Stars win against the Florida Panthers 6-4. It was a tough-fought battle between both clubs and the Stars rose to the occasion last night. The Stars now return home for a week and some change to start their homestand on Saturday.
Dallas Stars vs Florida Panthers Recap: 3. Wedgewood went down
Dallas Stars backup goaltender Scott Wedgewood went down in the middle frame after his back went in a direction that it shouldn’t have. He was down on the ice for quite some time after the ref blew the play dead. After the game, it was reported by reporters that Scott Wedgewood was up and moving in the locker room which is such a good sign. He will still need to be looked at when they return to Frisco. Expect a Matt Murray for Matej Blumel swap tomorrow while Wedgewood recovers.
Dallas Stars vs Florida Panthers Recap: 2. Defensive issues strike again
I don’t know what is wrong with our defense once we get a huge lead. I’m giving Oettinger the benefit of the doubt tonight cause the injury was so sudden and he thought he wasn’t going to have to play tonight. However, the defense doesn’t get a break at all for their performance. When you are up 4 goals, the coach expects you to hold the lead. The Stars have to do a better job of that as the season moves along. If they don’t fix it, it could possibly cost them a playoff spot at the end of the season.
Dallas Stars vs Florida Panthers Recap: 1. Hintz and Robertson on fire
Well, there was a brief moment after the first period that Robertson wasn’t going to extend his point streak. In the second period, he extended his point streak to ten on Hintz’s second goal of the game. With the way that both are playing right now, they both could break Patrick Sharp’s point streak record from 2015-16. After grabbing five out of six points on the road, the Stars return home to take on the New York Islanders to kick off a four-game homestand.
