Stars rally past Sharks
DALLAS — The hope of another win vanished quickly after the Sharks found a way to shoot themselves in the foot again.
The Dallas Stars scored three unanswered goals late in the game, ending the Sharks brief winning streak with a 3-2 win at American Airlines Center Friday.
The Stars tied it up in the second by capitalizing on a slow Sharks line change. After Karlsson flipped the puck into the Stars zone, former Shark Roman Polak backhanded it back up through the neutral zone, springing Mattias Janmark on a breakaway chance that he buried on Martin Jones’ blocker side.
Then, Miro Heiskanen put the Stars ahead 2-1 at 4:38 of the third, beating Jones with a shot through traffic. Brett Ritchie took advantage of a two-on-one chance after MarcEdouard Vlasic fell in the neutral zone less than two minutes later, giving the Stars a twogoal cushion.
