Dallas Stars Daily Links: Stars Complete Comeback, Actually Win 3-2 in OT

New, comments

Pitlick, Radulov, Shore, and Benn got the job done for Dallas. Mostly Stars stuff today, plus outdoor hockey!

Happy Sunday, everyone! What of a game yesterday. When Jaden Schwartz scored with just over seven minutes to go in the third period and the Dallas Stars responded with a couple of underwhelming shifts, I thought it was going to be some sad links today. However, the Stars responded with a couple minutes remaining when Alexander Radulov was able to just get enough juice on the puck to squeeze it past Carter Hutton. The Stars should have gotten the two points in regulation, except Devin Shore apparently kicked in a puck that he couldn’t really see. Jamie Benn came through in overtime, and the Stars earned a crucial win that put them back into third in the Central Division. Here are some highlights:

Things started off with a bang when Antoinne Roussel and Chris Thorburn dropped the gloves off of the opening faceoff. Rousel picked up a cool 17 PIM when he inexplicably got an instigator call in addition to the five minutes for fighting and 10-minute misconduct. The St. Louis Blues had several chances in the first period, but the goal line remained scoreless throughout the period.

Tyler Pitlick put the Stars up 1-0 in the second period when he beat Hutton blocker-side on a breakaway. As this tweet says, it was a really nice pass from Roussel on the play. Almost a no-look beauty:

A few minutes later, Ivan Barbashev knotted things at 1-1 when he cleaned up a juicy rebound (not sure why this video looks like it was filmed with the “1970s home video” filter on):

Maybe HD doesn’t exist in St. Louis? Anyway, here is Jaden Schwartz beating Roussel on the rush and giving the Blues a 2-1 lead with about seven minutes remaining in the third:

Alexander Radulov, who had yet another monster game, saved the day late in regulation:

It looked like the Stars took the lead with about two minutes left, but alas, this was deemed to be a distinct kicking motion:

Nice little zing from Sean Shapiro after that:

The third period ended 2-2 and we got some free hockey, which is a lot nicer in the afternoon than it is late at night. The Stars completely dominated overtime and Benn was able to end it with a wrister from the slot. Bonus points to Tyler Seguin for the jumping screen he set on Hutton. He must have watched some figure skating during the Olympics:

And from a different angle:

It’s always nice to see the AAC rocking:

Sorry not sorry, St. Louis:

So does Pedro Cerrano:

Here’s Ken Hitchcock on the win:

And the man of the hour, who started looking like himself again yesterday:
