Tyler Seguin finally found the back of the net and it couldn’t come at a better time. The Dallas Stars ended their losing streak in OT with a win against the Ottawa Senators. It was a huge win for the Dallas Stars as they finally picked up their first OT win of the season. It was also an unusual game as Miro Heiskanen and Nils Lundkvist were the goal scorers that got us to OT. We will talk more about that down below as we go over the three takeaways from the win last night.
Dallas Stars vs Ottawa Senators Recap: 3. Scoring from the Blue Line
This is the first game in a while that most of the goals that were scored by the Stars were from defensemen. Heiskanen had two goals early on in the first period which was huge. It got the Stars out to an early lead which was much needed. Lundkvist got the game-tying goal in the third period which sent us to OT.
Dallas Stars vs Ottawa Senators Recap: 2. Put Miro and Nils together on the power play
These two need to be put together on the power play moving forward. Since Ryan Suter can’t do anything right on the power play, try Lundkvist. Lundkvist and Heiskanen would work together really well and limit the turnovers that the Stars had on the power play the last two games. Sometimes you got to change things up and this would be one of the top things on my to-do list if I’m DeBoer.
Dallas Stars vs Ottawa Senators Recap: 1. Wyatt Johnston has “that dawg in him”
To all those fans that said Wyatt Johnston needed to go back to the Windsor Spitfires, are you glad he didn’t go back? Wyatt Johnston made the play of the game in OT when he got the puck back from the Senators and fed Tyler Seguin for the game-winning goal. That’s a play that you don’t see many rookies make. Wyatt Johnston definitely belongs in the NHL and I’m glad he’s on the Dallas Stars.
