The Dallas Stars came out scoring and never looked back.
The result, a convincing 5-1 rout of the Edmonton Oilers (who have lost 5 of their last 6) en route to a five-day bye week. The Stars return to the ice January 13th to host the Colorado Avalanche and, as of now, are 24-16-3 in the standings with 51 points.
“It was just a great team win. That’s how we wanted to play the last game before the bye week,” said defenseman John Klingberg, who had a goal and two assists. “We can’t control what the other guys do in the division and the conference, but I think with the home stand we had here we said we have to get as many points as we can.”
The Stars currently sit in the first wild-card spot in the Western Conference.
The Stars bolted out of the gate and straight to a 3-0 lead in the first period. The reason: a decision by Coach Ken Hitchcock to move Alexander Radulov to the line with Jamie Benn and Tyler Sequin a few minutes into the game. They promptly produced three goals, one by each player.
Radulov, Seguin and John Klingberg all had three-point games for the Stars, each registering one goal and two assists. Benn and Mattias Janmark also scored. Goalie Ben Bishop made 37 saves for the Stars.
The only score for the Oilers came from Leon Draisaitl.
