Stars rally past Sharks

Lodi News-Sentinel - - SPORTS - By Paul Gackle

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.
