Concerns for the Stars' offense as they were held in check against Boston 3-2

The first period seemed to set the tone for the Bruins as they showcased their physicality and elite goaltending. The Stars offense got off to a slow start as every shot somehow came up short or was blocked. Dallas had three power play opportunities but couldn’t convert on any of them, but Boston converted on one of their four power play chances. This type of game is normally dominated by the Stars, as they had eight more shots than the Bruins

. Dallas entered the final period of the game scoreless before Wyatt Johnston got the Stars on the board. The Bruins were quick to respond as they scored on a power play shortly after, but the Stars were not going down without a fight as they scored their second goal of the night. The slow start eventually came back to haunt the Stars, as they lost the game by a score of 3-2. One good thing that came out of the loss was the performance of Dallas young goalie Jake Ottinger, who had multiple blocks at the goal.

The Stars will be attempting to end their two-game losing streak on Thursday as they will be playing the Blue Jackets. The offense has been noticeably less productive than normal, as they only scored two goals in back-to-back games. The Blue Jackets are exactly the kind of opponent that the Stars needed, as they rank towards the bottom of the NHL in defense. Dallas will look to put more points on the board and take some pressure off their young goalie in their next matchup, and we will see if the offense finds its rhythm. After back-to-back losses, the Stars will be sure to get off to an early start, as they found themselves trailing the whole game against the Bruins. The Stars better find their offense and fight it fast if they want to get back on track this Thursday.
