Round 2 – St. Louis Blues v. Dallas Stars – Game 3 Recap

St. Louis Blues v. Dallas Stars

Series Tied 1-1

 

Game Recap (Provided by @aew328123 Aryan):

The St. Louis Blues came out with a much faster start than in Game 2, with Jaden Schwartz opening the scoring. While Alexander Radulov was able to tie the game at 1 for the Dallas Stars on a great play on the power play, the Blues seemed like they were in control of the game.

 

The second period brought more of the same, but the tide seemed to be tilting in Dallas’s favor, but the Blues’ third line had an amazing shift, with great plays by Vince Dunn and Robert Thomas to set up an easy tap in for Tyler Bozak.

 

The fireworks really started in the third, with teams trading quick goals. Andrew Cogliano scored to tie the game at 2, but Alex Pietrangelo followed that up with another goal to give the Blues a late 3-2 lead. However, Alex giveth, Alex taketh away as a poor clearing attempt directly set up Dallas’s third goal. Fortunately Pat Maroon knocked down featherweight Esa Lindell, and sniped the game winning goal. Game 4 is slated for Wednesday at 930 PM eastern in Dallas.
