The Dallas Stars had no mercy on the Minnesota Wild, who won 8-3.
With the score at 5:3, tempers heated up at the end of the second period when Wild striker Brandon Duhaime checked Stars defender Thomas Harley and he intercepted the blow with his head. The first city received a severe punishment for surrendering to the gang. For his part, the young defender left the game. The full sequence can be found above.
Jason Robertson put his name in the goal column twice by lighting up the red light on two power plays in the third period. Former Montreal Canadiens Evgenii Dadonov also scored, giving his team a three-goal lead with the man advantage.
Duhaime, Vinni Lettieri and Mats Zuccarello answered for the local favorites.
The special teams absolutely destroyed Dean Evason’s men, who conceded five goals while missing a man and also allowed two more goals while on the power play.
Marc-André Fleury allowed the Texan team’s eight goals.
With this loss, the Minnesota club has a record of 5-8-2, good for sixth place in the Central Section. The Stars are continuing their good momentum and have only suffered three regular-time defeats in 14 games since the start of the season.
