Well, that was a heck of a game! Full disclosure, I was on a flight during it. I shelled out the $23.99 for in-flight WiFi only to confirm that streaming wouldn’t work, so I went old school and listened. Anyways, here are some highlights:
Mattias Janmark opened the scoring with a nifty wraparound:
The Blackhawks didn’t wait long to respond, as Alex DeBrincat evened the score like 9 seconds later:
Radek Faksa continued tearing it up by roofing a shorthanded penalty shot:
Artev Ansimov knotted it up right at the beginning of the second:
Remi Elie dangled the Stars to a 3-2 lead heading into the third:
Sadly, Patrick Kane tied it again.
Then, Mattias Janmark won it in OT for the Stars, 4-3! The Blackhawks unfortunately get the loser point but at least the Stars took home two:
Martin Hanzal is back in Dallas to be evaluated for his “undisclosed injury.” I thought we were done with that kind of talk?
Josh Bogorad takes another look at the Stars’ home/road splits and tries to make sense of it, much like we all do on a daily basis. [NHL]
Scott Burnside had a chat with the other Mr. Selke, Guy Carbonneau, about his time with the Stars and having Brenden Morrow as a son-in-law (had to really restrain myself from making a Pauly Shore reference):

Stat of the day:
Didn't realize Stars have more Finns on their NHL roster than any other team with 3. No other team has more than 2— Sean Shapiro (@seanshapiro) November 30, 2017
You’re damn right he is:
I think this is kind of complementary?

I’m too sexy for my shirt:
Dave Lozo talks about Alexander Ovechkin’s renaissance year, and also some stuff about Ovi’s support for Putin. I know Ovi supports Putin, but I think Lozo is making jokes or something, I can’t really tell:
Alex Ovechkin is having a renaissance this year, but is it fair to throw the Putin stuff in his face? Let's discuss: https://t.co/6vFeu0lDAx— DL (@davelozo) November 30, 2017
