Dallas extends series lead to 3 games to 1 as they hold off the Knights in game 4.
Khudobin seemed the only Stars player who knew what time the game started tonight! A painful first period to watch as the Stars looked a step behind the Knights at all times, that combined with what felt once again like the puck just wouldn’t stick to our players as it bounced over our sticks and fed the Vegas Golden Knights opportunity after oppertunity!
Lucky enough for the Stars Anton Khudobin kept the Stars in the game and kept the score 0-0 after the first.
A Power Play goal gave Vegas the lead in 2nd as the Stars struggles seemed to continue until a forced turnover by the Stars lead to Pavelski leaving the game at 1-1. Finally the Stars looked like they had turned up, killing penalties off with ease and then getting the go ahead goal on a Power Play of their own as Jamie Benn picked up a rebound in front of the net after a shot by Klingberg at the point.
The Stars then looked comfortable defending the rest of the way, that is easy to say now, not so easy to watch, especially during a long 5-3 man advantage for the Knights, but the Stars and Khudobin held strong and have another 3-1 series lead.
