MEET IN ST. LOUIS

The Dallas Stars fell in overtime to the St. Louis Blues, 4-3, on Sunday afternoon at American Airlines Center in Game 2. The Stars and Blues are now tied at 1-1, with the series shifting to St. Louis for Game 3 on Tuesday and Game 4 on Thursday. Defenseman Alex Goligoski opened the scoring for Dallas with a goal (1-0=1) early in the first period but the Blues would respond with three-straight goals in the period to build a 3-1 advantage heading into the first intermission. After a scoreless second period, forward Mattias Janmark (1-0=1) and captain Jamie Benn (1-1=2) each recorded a goal in the third period to force overtime. Blues captain David Backes would tally the game-winning goal in overtime on the power play to even up the Second Round series. Goaltender Antti Niemi recorded the loss for the Stars, stopping 19-of-20 shots faced after goaltender Kari Lehtonen was pulled from the game.


BENN THERE, DONE THAT

Stars captain Jamie Benn registered two points (1-1=2) in Game 2 against the St. Louis Blues and now leads the NHL in postseason scoring with 12 points (5-7=12) along with sharing second in assists (7) and ranking fourth in goals (5). Benn has points in seven of his eight games during the 2016 Stanley Cup Playoffs and recorded a career-long six-game postseason point streak (4-6=10) from April 14 - 24, which is tied with Pittsburgh's Evgeni Malkin (3-6=9) and St. Louis' Jaden Schwartz (3-4=7) for the longest point streak this postseason. The captain's six-game postseason point streak was the longest by a Dallas Stars player since 2008, when Brenden Morrow also registered points in six consecutive playoff games (4-2=6) from May 2 - May 14, 2008. The native of Victoria, B.C. now has points in 12 of 14 career playoff contests, tallying 17 career points (9-8=17) in the postseason.

EAKIN' IT OUT

Stars forward Cody Eakin recorded a postseason career-best three points (0-3=3) on Sunday afternoon against the St. Louis Blues and now has points in three of his last four Stanley Cup Playoff games (0-5=5). His three assists against the Blues are tied for the most in a single playoff game in Dallas Stars franchise history (last: Jason Spezza, Game 6 of 2016 Western Conference First Round at Minnesota) and the most by a Dallas Stars skater on home ice since Mike Modano (0-3=3) in Game 1 of the 1998 Western Conference Semifinals vs. Edmonton. The forward shares 14th in the NHL with seven points (0-7=7) this postseason and is tied for the team lead in assists (7). The native of Winnipeg, Man. has skated in 14 career Stanley Cup Playoff contests, registering 12 points (2-10=12).

SPEZZ IS MORE

Forward Jason Spezza currently shares seventh among all skaters in the 2016 Stanley Cup Playoffs with nine points (4-5=9) and is tied for fifth in the NHL with four goals. The forward has skated in all eight games during the 2016 postseason and has registered three multi-point contests including a four-point game (1-3=4) in the series-clinching Game 6 victory in the First Round against Minnesota. Spezza's four-point outing is tied for the most points in a single game during the 2016 postseason (others: P. Hornqvist - NSH, T. Johnson - TBL, E. Malkin - PIT) and is tied for the most points ever recorded by a Dallas Stars player in a Stanley Cup Playoff game (other: Brad Richards, 1-3=4, Game 2 of the 2008 Western Conference Semifinals at San Jose). The forward also tied his career-high in postseason points in a single game, matching his four-point outing (0-4=4) as a member of the Ottawa Senators in Game 3 of the 2006 Eastern Conference Quarterfinals against Tampa Bay. Over the course of his NHL career, Spezza has recorded 61 points (21-40=61) in 62 Stanley Cup Playoff games.
