Stars-Flames Notes
The Stars have struggled in the second games of back-to-back sets in recent seasons, but they found a way to get the job done Thursday night in Calgary.

The Stars have struggled in the second games of back-to-back sets in recent seasons, but they found a way to get the job done Thursday night in Calgary.

The Stars got to off to a pretty good start against the Flames, scored the all-important first goal, extended the lead with a big second period and won on the second night of a back-to-back for the first time this season, routing the Flames 7-3.

“I was happy with the way we came out,” said Stars coach Lindy Ruff. “In the first ten minutes we wanted to make sure we were crisp, we were sharp and pucks were going deep and we were making plays. I don’t think we really got the start we wanted on the offensive side, but we got going seven or eight minutes into the period.”

“I know our back-to-back record is like four wins in the last 20-plus tries, so we really stressed on it going into tonight’s game,” said Stars center Tyler Seguin. “After the first [period] we were up one, but I actually saw Calgary play San Jose the other night and come back, and everyone stressed it in the dressing room and we came out hard in the second.”

The Stars are 1-3-0 this season in the second game of back-to-backs and they are now 5-20-2 in those games dating back to the 2011-12 season.
