The Dallas Stars defeated the Chicago Blackhawks in overtime 5-4. You wouldn’t think that the Stars would only narrowly beat a team like the Hawks at home but the National Hockey League is the best in the world for a reason.
The Stars actually had a multi-goal lead in this game and the Hawks came back to tie it. During regulation, Roope Hintz had two of the four Dallas goals. Jamie Benn and Joe Pavelski had the others.
In overtime, Hintz completed the hat trick and gave his team the win. Of course, he was named to be the first star of the game with his performance. He was very important for his team in getting a win over a bottom-feeder like Chicago.
Hintz’s goals were his 12th, 13th, and 14th of the season. He is relied on heavily to be a top offensive producer for them and this game was an example of why.
The Chicago Blackhawks were defeated by Roope Hintz and the Dallas Stars.
Jason Robertson plays so well with Hintz. He assisted on both of Hintz’s goals that came at even strength. The power-play goal that he scored in the first period was assisted by Pavelski and Benn. There was a lot of star power on display in this one.
The Stars did allow four goals but they did a good job keeping Connor Bedard off the board. If he were going in this game, the Stars probably would have had no chance.
This win moved the Stars into second place in the Central Division with 46 points. They only trail the Colorado Avalanche who have 47 points and two more games played. Dallas may win this thing in the end. It will be a tight race all season long.
Their next opponent will be none other than the Chicago Blackhawks again. This time, they will play them again in Dallas too. There is no doubt that the Stars would like to ring in the new year with two more points from a much weaker team.
