Eight goal outburst leads Stars over Wild for 10th win of season
For several years now the Dallas Stars have played the Minnesota Wild competitively and have had success in Minnesota. Sunday proved to be another saga of the Stars’ dominance in Minnesota by winning 8 to 3, in addition to holding the first-place spot in the Central division in the Western Conference. The Stars power play showed a level of consistency against the Wild scoring five power-play goals out of six opportunities.
Dallas set a record for total power-play goals while also handing the Minnesota Wild a franchise record of allowing five power-play goals. The addition of Matt Duchene in the offseason is proving to pay dividends for the Dallas Stars, and more importantly the paired linemates with Mason Marchment and Tyler Seguin. Their line generated 5 shots on goal, 1 goal with a total of 4 assists altogether including the power-play points. The Stars’ received multiple goals from young sensational players Jason Robertson and Wyatt Johnston. Minnesota displayed a lack of energy since the opening faceoff and Dallas took advantage of that. “We were ready to play. We knew the importance of the game and got the job done,” Stars head coach Pete DeBoer stated in his post-game conference. Dallas now will host the surprising Arizona Coyotes on Tuesday night while the Minnesota Wild travel to Stockholm, Sweden to face the Ottawa Senators as part of the NHL Global Series.
