The Stars did shine big and bright deep in the heart of Texas tonight. The Boston Bruins made a stop in Dallas to get flattened by the Dallas Stars in a 6-1 final.
Tyler Seguin, on the eve of his 30th birthday, scored two goals tonight. One to start the game off just 7 minutes into the first period and his second closed the scoring with just 1:07 remaining in the game. His best buddies Jamie Benn and Alexander Radulov also scored goals. This was the first game since February 21st, 2019 where all 3 of the big boys had goals.
The remaining two goals came from Luke Glendening and Roope Hintz. Hintz’s goal was his 20th on the season, which is a career-high for him. In just 40 games this season he’s put up 37 points (20G 17A) and he’s currently 3rd on the team in points. Roope along with Jason Robertson – who had a point tonight and is 2nd in points – are the future of this team. They’re building an amazing foundation for the years to come.
They’re not the only ones. Jake Oettinger, the 23-year-old goalie, stopped 25 of 26 shots on net, only allowing a lone goal from Craig Smith 5 minutes into the 3rd period. He’s been stellar for this team so it’s nice to see him keep things going.
The Stars needed this one after getting their asses kicked against the Capitals a few days ago. They’re now 23-17-2 on the season as we’re one game away from the halfway point. They’re going to be facing the Calgary Flames next on February 1st. That’s bound to be a bloodbath considering the beef between these two teams. The Flames have been either scoring big or playing quietly so as long as Dallas can keep them out of the net, this should be a great game for the Stars.
