On Monday, the Dallas Stars took on the Colorado Avalanche in game two of the second round of the NHL playoffs. The Stars were coming off a strong performance in game one winning 5-3 to take a 1-0 series lead.

However, nine minutes and 54 seconds into the second period, Joe Pavelski scored the first goal for the Stars on a power play. The Stars would strike again only 40 seconds later when Radek Faska would take advantage of another power play and tying the game 2-2. Five minutes later, Alecander Radulov would score the Stars third goal and taking the lead. The Stars did not look back, adding on another point when Esa Lindell scored an unassisted goal, the Stars fourth goal in the second period. The Stars would add one more goal on an empty net with only ten seconds left in the third period when Jamie Oleksiak cleared the puck from the Stars zone.

The Stars would win the game 5-2 and take a commanding 2-0 series lead and one more game closer to moving on to the Western Conference Finals. The Stars will take on the Avalanche again on Wednesday night, looking to take a 3-0 lead in the series.
