The Avalanche led 5-0 after one and 6-1 after two in the lopsided win.

In goal, Pavel Francouz is 2-4 with a goals-against average of 3.23 and save percentage of .892.
Dallas must put its embarrassing 6-goal loss in Game 5 behind them when they take the ice on Wednesday. Ben Bishop started in goal for the Stars and gave up four goals prior to being replaced with over six minutes remaining in the first period by Anton Khudobin even though Khudobin was considered unfit to play following the team's morning skate. Joe Pavelski, Miro Heiskanen and Jamie Benn scored in the loss for Dallas.
