The Dallas Stars and Nashville Predators are one of the up and coming rivalries in the NHL. and in today’s game the Preds held on for a 2-0 victory, Viktor Arvidsson was the lone player to find the back of the net. Once on the powerplay in the 1st period in which he had a yawning cage. The other being on a two on one, where his intended pass hit off the skate of Stars defenseman Stephen Johns and between the five-hole of Ben Bishop.
The Dallas Stars renewed exactly what we knew about them, they’re a team that plays great defense and struggles to score goals. Their first shot of the game came nearly eight minutes into the game. They started sloppily but that could be chalked up to a bit of rust. As the game went on they started to click a little more and started to challenge Pekka Rinne in the 3rd.
The Preds look ready to take on the Arizona Coyotes starting Sunday afternoon, The Stars, on the other hand, are lucky that their playoffs don’t start until at least August 11th.
