Dallas Stars cash in on the power play to beat the Seattle Kraken 5-2
The Dallas Stars went into Climate Pledge Arena and played a complete hockey game tonight. The Stars would score three goals on the power play and beat the Kraken again. I really don’t have any complaints about tonight. The Stars did what they did at the beginning of the season and they dominated all 60 minutes on the road tonight. They did have some hiccups on defense but besides that Stars’ fans shouldn’t be complaining after tonight’s win. Here are the three takeaways from the second win in Seattle.
Dallas Stars vs Seattle Kraken Recap: 3. Strong start from the get-go
The Stars got a very strong start out of the gate and it proved to be what propelled them to victory tonight. Evgenii Dadonov kicked off the scoring on a lucky deflection in front of the net. It was then followed by a Jamie Benn goal on the power play shortly after that.
They would go into the first intermission up 2-1. Joe Pavelski would do his thing and deflect another goal into the net making it 3-1. The strong start by the Stars tonight was the key difference in the win after having a short break from Saturday’s game.
Dallas Stars vs Seattle Kraken Recap: 2. Power Play prevails
The Stars punished the Kraken on the power play tonight, which was another key factor in the win tonight. The Stars would go on to capitalize on three of the four power plays that they were on tonight. This is something that the Stars need to keep doing down the stretch if they want to be a threat to everyone in the playoffs this season. The Stars can keep this up tonight as they take on the Vancouver Canucks.
Dallas Stars vs Seattle Kraken Recap: 1. Need a goal, call 1-800-RedBull
The Stars needed some offense from their 19-year-old rookie Wyatt Johnston and boy they got that in a big way last night. After the Kraken cut the Stars lead to one, Wyatt Johnston would probably score what is so far his career-highlight goal. After the goal was posted on Twitter, multiple hockey fans were shocked he wasn’t in the top 3 of the Calder Trophy conversation. He might have just cracked the top 3 with that goal alone in front of the Calder Trophy Voters watching.
