Ondrej Pavelec played hero in this game. A mystifying decision to go to a passive forecheck while tied in the third period led to a number of dangerous chances for the Stars. Pavelec bailed his defencemen out on turnovers, and while short handed where the team played run-and-gun hockey.
The top Defensive pairing (in minutes) of Byfuglien and Clitsome only avoided being burned on account of Pavelec, as they gave up 16 and 14 even strength shots respectively. Meanwhile, James Wright played 16 minutes and was the team's best corsi player after Matt Halischuk. Mark Stuart was the team's best corsi defender.
