The Dallas Stars have taken a commanding 2 games to none lead after getting a win in their last game. With the win the Stars were able to put in another 5 goal showing on the day. However, unlike the first game which seen the Stars give up 3 goals the Dallas team only allowed 2 goals to be scored in the game here.

In the second game of the series the Stars were able to rip off only 27 shots on net. The Dallas team managed to get a total of 60 hits in the game. Dallas did end up winning 30 faceoffs, but to help them out even more the Stars were great on the power play with a 2-3 success rate.

Colorado is facing a situation that they were not really expecting to be in. The Avalanche had been a dominating team for most of the postseason and now are down 2 games to none. To make matters even worse for the Avalanche is the fact that they are using their back up goalie in the net, but also have fallen flat offensively so far as well.

With the Avalanche they managed to get a total of 40 shots off the sticks and to the net. The Avalanche have ended up with a total of only 29 hits in the game. The faceoff battle is one that seen the Avalanche win a total of 39 faceoffs. One aspect that Colorado was outmatched in was the power play as Colorado only converted on 25% of the faceoffs.

    The game here is one which the Avalanche have their backs on the wall and they are not really showing up offensively. The staunch defense from Dallas is definitely playing havoc with the Avalanche offense and until the Colorado team figures out how to beat them the pressure on the Avs net minders will be to much and that leads to Colorado losing this game as well. Final Score Prediction, Dallas Stars win 4-1.
