Dallas (10-5-1) @ Detroit (8-7-0)
In a game where one team really looked to keep rolling, and another looked to change some fortune, The Stars invaded Hockeytown.
The first period, it got started right on time. As Valtteri Filppula (6) broke in all alone on Kari Lehtonen and scored on a wrist shot glove high. No assists.
It wouldn’t end there though, as on his very next shift, during a 4 minute powerplay for Brendan Morrow high sticking, Filppula (7) scored during the second frame to end the powerplay. Cleary and Quincey would assist.
The Stars struck to inch back into it though, at 16:39 Michael Ryder (4) scored on Howard five-hole, Jamie Benn and Derek Roy assisted. 2-1 at the end of one.
In the second however, the Wings wouldn’t let up. As Carlo Colaiacovo (1) scored on a big slapshot through a screened Lehtonen. Cleary and Nyquist get the assists.
After a tripping penalty for Darren Helm expired, the guilty man came out for the Penalty Kill after Kyle Quin...
