Dallas Stars Defeat New Jersey Devils, 4-3

Hockey was played in Dallas on a Saturday night in December.

The Dallas Stars played a game on Saturday night against the New Jersey Devils at American Airlines Center, and one of those two teams won. Unfortunately, whoever won did not see their season instantly turn around for the better, but I'm sure it was a good step in the right direction.

There were some big shots, some big hits and most likely some great saves at one point. There most likely was a soft goal allowed that instantly turned the momentum of the game, and may have taken the wind out of the sails of the team that allowed it.

There's a 99.6% chance that Tyler Seguin scored a goal.

There's a 75.2% chance Tyler Seguin scored two goals.

Kari Lehtonen had some pucks hit him -- hopefully more than he didn't let hit him.

There's also a good chance that the Dallas Stars scored a few goals early, then let the Devils back into the game with some late goals that made the outcome of the game in doubt.

As you can tell, this recap was written before the game was played. We'll be back later tonight with the full recap.
