Luck Was a Lady

Knights fortunate win

SC 3 – DAL 2 OT  Historically this is the first time the first two games from each series of the Conference Finals / Stanley Cup Semi-Finals have resulted in overtime.

This game was all Dallas until the final five minutes of play through the end of regulation and into overtime, the Knights had only 10 SOG combined for the first and second periods and only three more SOG halfway through the third.

The Stars built a 2-1 lead with the Knights’ lone goal earned on a (5 on 3) power play and with less than three minutes remaining in the game Jackie Vegas throws a blind pass from the end boards that found Mr. Marchessault who scored his sixth of the postseason.

After the tying goal, the announcer proclaimed Mr. Eichel as the Master Playmaker and then reflected out loud that it was his first point of the series, the Knights now have to count on him and Mr. Hill to repeat their efforts in Dallas.

The Florida Panthers host the Carolina Hurricanes after building a 2-0 games series lead in Raleigh at 8pm tonight EST.
