Dallas Stars Can Even Series With Win Tonight

The Dallas Stars lost Game 1 of their Western Conference finals series with Edmonton on their home ice on Thursday night. Tonight, the Stars need a win to avoid falling behind 2-0 in the series. The Oilers scored 58 seconds into the game and jumped out to an early 2-0 lead in Game 1. Dallas managed to tie the game and force overtime.

The Stars and Oilers didn’t score in the first overtime. Connor McDavid ended the game scoring just 32 seconds into the second overtime. The win put Edmonton up 1-0 in series with an opportunity to steal two games from the Stars on their home ice.

Connor McDavid scored the game-winner in Game 1.

To win Game 2, the Stars will have to be better on the power play. They had five opportunities in Game 1 but failed on all five. The Stars had eight shots on goal during those power plays, but the Oilers have the best penalty killing unit in the postseason. The Oilers have killed 37 of 40 power plays (92.5 percent) in the Stanley Cup playoffs.

Since moving to Dallas in 1993, the Stars have been to the playoffs 19 times. They have advanced this far six times and made the Stanley Cup finals three times. The Stars have won the Stanley Cup once. That was in 1999.

Let’s take a look.

  • Mavs up 2-0: Luka Doncic nailed a go-ahead three-pointer with Rudy Gobert all over him and Dallas beat Minnesota 109-108 in Game 2 of the Western Conference playoffs. The Mavericks lead the series 2-0 with the series moving to Dallas for Game 3 on Sunday.
  • Rangers rebound: New York and Florida were tied 1-1 at the end of the first period in last night’s Eastern Conference finals. Neither team scored again until Barclay Goodrow scored in overtime to give the Rangers a 2-1 win. The series is now tied at 1-1.
  • Fever win first: Caitlin Clark only scored 11 points and Kelsey Mitchell had 18 as Indiana picked up its first WNBA win of the season, a 78-73 win over the Los Angeles Sparks.
  • Yankees hit 3 dingers: And they did it all in one inning. Juan Soto, Aaron Judge, and Giancarlo Stanton all homered in the third inning of last night’s 8-0 win over the San Diego Padres. Gleyber Torres also homered in the fourth inning last night.
