The Dallas Stars remain in the hunt for a place in the Stanley Cup finals this season, but it still looks like an incredibly tall order. Dallas will need to win each of the remaining games to claim a dramatic victory in the Western Conference finals, as they still trail 3-1 overall.
However, they were given fresh hope of getting back into the series on Thursday evening, as they landed victory in game four in Dallas. It was a dramatic clash between the sides, with the Stars eventually coming out on top with a 3-2 win after overtime.
It was a nervy night at the American Airlines Center on Thursday, but the Stars fully deserved their victory. Jason Robertson was the standout player for Dallas, as he scored twice from eleven shots on goal. Meanwhile, Joe Pavelski also found the back of the net.
However, defeat in game four is unlikely to faze the Golden Knights, as they will still be aware that they require one win more to set up a Stanley Cup final series with the Florida Panthers. Their efforts in game four were scored by William Karlsson and Jonathan Marchessault.
The Stars victory in game four has breathed new life into this series, and it makes for a compelling game on Saturday. However, we expect Dallas to fall short in heightening the drama, as we will be siding with the Golden Knights.
