Avalanche dominate Stars again and force game 7


Joseph Celsur, Sports Writer

On Wednesday night, the Colorado Avalanche took on the Dallas Stars in game six of the second round of the NHL playoffs. Anton Khudobin returned to the net for the Dallas Stars after he was benched in game five and Ben Bishop got the start. But after allowing 4 goals in two minutes during game five, the Stars opted to put Khudobin back in the net.

Miro Heiskanen started the game off strong for the Stars scoring the first goal of the game 17 minutes into the first period. After that, however, the Stars would not find the back of the net the rest of the game. The Avalanche once again proceeded to go on a hot streak. Nikita Zadorov would tie the game with 32 seconds left in the first period. The Avalanche would strike again seven minutes into the second period when rookie Cale Makar scored his 3rd goal of the series. Mikko Rantanen would add another goal for the Avalanche three minutes into the third period, and Nathan MacKinnon would seal the game with a score on an empty net with three minutes left in the game. Game seven of the series will take place Friday night, and the Stars will be looking to avoid a repeat of last year’s second round, when they lost to the Blues after being up 3-1 in the series.
