Texas Stars fall in OT to Hamilton Bulldogs, 3-2

The Stars started the West Conference Finals against the Hamilton Bulldogs (Montreal Canadiens) in Ontario this evening.  Texas took two early penalties in the game and Hamitlon capitalized on just 5 minutes into the game to make it 1-0.  The Stars tied it up on a power play of their own with Jamie Benn beating goaltender Curtis Sanford with a weak 5-hole wrister.  Hamilton closed the period with a goal of their own on a knucklepuck from David Desharnais that ticked off Brock Trotter for the 2-1 lead.

Texas tied it up in the second period on the power play.  Dan Jancevski passed down from the left point to the low right wing circle where a waiting Jamie Benn one-timed it home for the 2-2 lead.  Texas skated to a scoreless third, but took a penalty at the end of regulation that ended up hurting them.  The Bulldogs scored on the carryover of the power play in OT.  Texas took 6 penalties in the game and allowed two PP goals, which they can't afford to do.

Full game recap on Hundred Degree Hockey.  Texas faces Hamilton again at 1 PM CST on Sunday.
