New York – The Vegas hockey players entered the finals of the NHL Western Conference with a 4:3 overtime win over Dallas. The match was decided by Brett Howden in 61:35. William Karlsson scored two goals for the winners. On the other side, Roope Hintz (1+2) had all the goals, replacing Edmonton captain Connor McDavid at the head of NHL playoff productivity. The Stars forward has 22 points (10+12).
Dallas took the lead from the 19th minute on a goal by Jason Robertson, who headed Hintz’s pass between the concretes of Adin Hill. The turnover was arranged by Karlsson. He first equalized in the middle of the game from the goalpost and at the beginning of the third period he made his way from the center of the circle. Hintz immediately countered with a successful shot from the left circle. Vegas were on top again in the 50th minute thanks to Teddy Blügers’ strike.
Dallas equalized in a game without a goaltender, and after a big jam in the goal area, Jamie Benn sent the game to overtime. It only took 95 seconds. Howden collected the puck at the back post after his inaccurate shot and threw the puck into the goal area where goaltender Jake Oettinger knocked it into his own net.
