The Dallas Stars continue their road trip with a visit to Florida. Bishop will miss at least tonights game so Khudobin will get the Start again.
This will be the first meeting for the Stars and Panthers this season, it has been over 1 year since the two clubs last met at the AAC where Dallas took a decisive 6-1 victory.
The Stars are quicker to every puck to start the game and immediately lead the way in shots on goal, however the Panthers start to get the puck towards Khudobin who looks strong in the early goings.
Seguin and Hintz kick things off first as Roope feeds Seguin for a nice deflection past the blocker of Luongo. And the Stars take a 1-0 lead.
The 2nd period starts with the Stars in the lead, the Stars have killed off 2 penalties before they get their first opportunity, but nothing comes from it, however the Stars have the momentum and some nice work behind the net by Benn gets the puck to Seguin who sets Lindell up to put the Stars up by two.
With the Stars lead comes a more desperate Panthers team who send attack after attack at the Stars, the panthers get plenty of shots on Khudobin, but the 2nd ends with the Stars still up by 2.
The 3rd period sees more of the Panthers trying to get back in to the game, the Stars defend well and have a few good chances themselves, but Khudobin steals the show keeping Florida off the board, Tyler Seguin adds an empty netter in the final minutes to give the Stars a strong bounce back performance and a solid 2 points in a shutout win.
