Stars Level Series with Golden Knights After Game 4 Victory

Stars vs Golden Knights playoff series

LAS VEGAS (AP) — The Dallas Stars staged a remarkable comeback in Game 4 against the Vegas Golden Knights, securing a 4-2 victory to level the series in their first-round NHL playoff clash.

Despite trailing by two games after losing both home fixtures, the Stars showcased resilience, claiming back-to-back wins in enemy territory. Their latest triumph, sealed on Monday night, sets the stage for a pivotal Game 5 showdown in Dallas on Wednesday.

Roope Hintz emerged as a pivotal figure, rebounding from an injury scare to score the game-clinching empty-netter. With goals also coming from Evgenii Dadonov, Wyatt Johnston, and Ty Dellandrea, and solid goaltending by Jake Oettinger, the Stars proved their mettle in the face of adversity.

The Golden Knights, led by goals from Michael Amadio and Jack Eichel, couldn’t maintain their early lead. Despite an impressive performance from Eichel, who has now scored in three consecutive games, the Knights faltered as the Stars dominated the second period.

While both teams capitalized on goaltending errors in the first period, it was Dallas who seized control in the second, outshooting Vegas and capitalizing on opportunities to take a 3-2 lead.
