The Dallas Stars continue their hot start to the season as they win their third straight game beating the Pittsburgh Penguins 4-1 Tuesday night.
It was a defensive battle in the first period that didn’t see a score until under a minute to go in the period. Pittsburgh’s Bryan Rust would score his fifth goal of the season to give the Penguins a 1-0 lead going into the intermission.
Dallas would take the momentum the rest of the game starting with a Jason Robertson goal seven minutes into the second period to tie the game. Evgenii Dadonov would join the party later in the second period with his first goal of the season to give the Stars a 2-1 lead after two periods.
The Stars continued their dominance with Thomas Harley scoring his first goal of the season to make it 3-1. Wyatt Johnston shut the door on Pittsburgh with his second goal of the season to seal the 4-1 win for the Stars.
After five game, Dallas is holding a 4-0-1 record keeping pace as one of the best teams in the NHL. Pittsburgh dropped their record to 2-4-0 on the season.
Harley and Robertson were the stars of the game each getting a goal and an assist in the contest. Jake Oettinger dominated in front on the net once again recording 38 saves for the Stars. While Pittsburgh led in most team statistical categories, the biggest stat Dallas led in was giveaways as Pittsburgh had 12 to Dallas’ 4.
The Stars return home to the AAC Thursday night as they take on the 4-2-0 Toronto Maple Leafs.
