Dallas Stars Daily Links: Goals, Goals, and More Goals

After last night’s emotional roller coaster, I’m not really sure what to say. So instead, let’s just binge watch some goal highlights, shall we?

We’ll skip the Minnesota Wild goals because “who cares?” and start off with Alexander Radulov’s first goal, which opened the scoring for the Dallas Stars in the late second:

Next up was Roope Hintz on the power play(!), because all he does is score score score no matter what:

Then it was Jordan Greenway Joe Pavelski who tied the game up at 3-3:

Not even two minutes later, Radulov would give Dallas the lead with his second of the night (with some help from Jonas Brodin):

To seal the deal, Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn took Alex Stalock and the Wild to school:

Finally, Radulov got his second career hat trick thanks to an empty netter:

(By the way, are you still upset about the “who cares?” joke? If yes, then mission accomplished.)

Some Supplemental Stars Stuff

Here’s what Radulov had to say about his big night:

And here’s Jim Montgomery on how the team played:

Montgomery has been shuffling the lines a lot to find the “best” lineup — maybe he finally found it last night?

Central Census

The Stars and Wild weren’t the only #MDK teams to take the ice last night:

  • Robin Lehner stopped 49 shots for the Chicago Blackhawks, but Nick Bonino scored thrice to give the Nashville Predators a 3-0 victory. [On the Forecheck]
  • In sharp contrast, seemingly everyone scored in the Winnipeg Jets and Anaheim Ducks game, which ended in a 7-4 win for Anaheim. [NHL]/

Roman Josi will be in Nashville for the foreseeable future, signing an 8x$9.059M extension with a full NMC:

Meanwhile the Colorado Avalanche’s captain, Gabriel Landeskog, will be off the ice for the foreseeable future:

Elsewhere, Brent Seabrook has been in the press box despite being healthy, and he’s not happy:

Andrei Svechnikov became the first player to pull off the “lacrosse goal” in the NHL, and boy was it a beauty:

David Pastrnak is easily one of the best contracts in hockey, right? The Boston Bruins forward has come out of the gate scorching this season:

Finally, should the NHL take a page from the MLB and make their schedule more player/travel friendly?
