This season I’m going to write one good thing about each and every Dallas Stars game. A full season of hockey includes an incredible amount of ups and downs, but I’m on a mission to find the one good thing that stands out that the Dallas Stars did each and every game this season.
The one good thing: Dallas Stars game 3 of 82 was the power play. To start the season the Dallas Stars were 0-7 on the PP and 7-7 on the penalty kill. One of those stats is awesome, and the other was uninspiring. However, in the second period against the Anaheim Ducks Thursday night, Roope Hintz did the thing where he skates faster than every human on the ice and scores a breakaway goal.
This tied the game for the Stars when they had looked completely lost on the ice on both offense and defense. Joe Pavelski added another tip in power play goal later in the period and it made me feel at peace once again with the top power play unit.
The Dallas Stars went on to win the game late in the third period off of a Miro Heiskanen pass that found its way into the net. Opening the season 2-0-1 with two shootout games isn’t the worst result.
The Dallas Stars face off against the Philadelphia Flyers Saturday night back in the American Airlines Center in Dallas for game four of the season. The one good thing: Dallas Stars game 3 of 82 was most definitely the power play coming to life.
