Round 2 Game 6 – St. Louis Blues v. Dallas Stars

St. Louis Blues v. Dallas Stars

Game 6 – DAL Leads 3-2

 

Game Recap:

Heading into Dallas for Game 6 the Stars look to close out the St. Louis Bluesat home, but it would be the Blues controlling the play off the opening faceoff as they would get the Dallas crowd out of it early as Alex Pietrangelo would score 63 seconds into the game for an early 1-0 lead. The Blues would continue to control the play, but the Stars gain some momentum after killing the first powerplay of the game for the Blues and would result in them forcing a powerplay of their own which would see Tyler Seguin tap in the loose puck over the goal line to tie the game at one.

 

In the second period both the Stars and the Blues would play a tightly contested chess match against eachother, but it would be the Blues breaking the tie as Oskar Sundqvist would fees David Perron in front of the net for a redirect into the net to make it 2-1 for the Blues going into the second intermission.

 

Going into the third period the Blues would go back to how they played in the first period as the Blues would score two goals 33 seconds apart. First it would be Jaden Schwartz redirecting an Alexander Steen shot on net after Colton Parayko injured Ben Bishop with a really hard point shot. Then Sammy Blais would score his first career playoff goal while on a 2 on 0 that would chase Bishop out of the net and bring in Anton Khudobin as the Blues increase their lead to 4-1. The Blues would hold on and force Game 7 on Tuesday night.
