Dallas Stars Even Up Their Series With The Seattle Kraken

from Iain MacIntyre of Sportsnet,

The Seattle Kraken are all energy — until they have none. The Dallas Stars look vulnerable — and then they don’t.

This carnival ride of a second-round National Hockey League playoff series is even through four games after the Stars won 6-3 Tuesday in Seattle, one game after getting embarrassed 7-2 by the Kraken.

Game 5 is Thursday in Dallas and, after the eight-goal swing, we’re out of predictions.

With a chance to ride momentum and seize a 3-1 series lead on home ice, the Kraken displayed only a fraction of the energy of their fans, delighted by playoff hockey in just the franchise’s second season.

So fast and physical when they’re on, the Kraken inexplicably switched off through the first two periods Tuesday, managing only 10 shots on net while falling behind 4-0 and 5-1. Maybe it wasn’t quite inexplicable; the sturdy Stars and their experienced veteran leaders had a lot to do with it.


The game highlights are below.
