It would be easy to look at the Lightning’s 8-2 win and naturally assume they were the more dominant of the two Game 1 winners. But that would be wrong.

What the Stars did to the Golden Knights on Sunday might have even been more demoralizing than the Lightning beating the Islanders by a touchdown Monday. It should be easy for the Islanders to park that performance and forget it. They will not dwell on something they were never really close to winning. The Golden Knights, however, had two days to think about how close they were to winning despite being suffocated in two ways by the Stars.

First, the Stars dominated the puck for 40 minutes, hardly spending any time in their own end and playing defense the best way you can do it. By playing on offense.

“For two periods that was Dallas Stars hockey,” Stars coach Rick Bowness said after Game 1. “We were skating, we were on top of them, we were creating a lot of offense from good defensive structure all over the ice. That second period was as good a period as we’ve played.”

Then, the Stars retreated. They defended a 1-0 lead and allowed the Golden Knights to finally play in their zone for most of the third period. Somehow, it appeared equally effective. Stars goalie Anton Khudobin was forced to make some saves, yes, but he rarely had to make more than one at a time, and generally those saves came on shots from manageable distances.

The Stars played two styles and excelled at both. That gives the Golden Knights a lot to think about.

More at the link. Arpon is great and I'm glad he's providing coverage.

Eh. I've watched enough hockey playoffs at my age to know now there's no such thing as momentum from game to game. Been fooled so many times.

I think the point still stand, though. What Dallas did is repeatable. Whether or not Seguin and Benn care enough to do it is a different matter.

The Stars performance on Sunday is a lot to live up to. It’s hard work, and Vegas was just so, so, not really making it too difficult for the Stars. Vegas will be better and Reeves will be in hurting players.

Doing something in a game shows capability, but it doesn't guarantee it. I predict some point over the next week I'll be beaten down after a game and calling for everyone to be fired. That's the beauty of a seven game series. Doubt and panic are part of the ride.

Let’s see how the Stars do against a better rested Vegas team playing with their #1 goalie before we give them too much credit.

Not any real insight here, but I expect a much more energetic start from the Knights. Reaves is going to run around and try to hit anything that moves while dishing out the chirps. If the Stars weather the storm and keep their cool, they've got a chance to steal another game. If not, could get ugly.

I wonder how Roman Polak will look tonight. He’s kind of been a nonfactor so far.

According to some googling and a little math, that is about 15 laps around the rink.

Yeah, they survived the big push to start the game, but we need to see a line other than the Hintz line spend time in the offensive zone

That was a pretty delay at the blue line by Kiviranta to create a passing lane.

I disagree. We should stick with dump and chase and just hope that things turn out ok.

Radulov isn’t getting a better chance than that feed from Klingberg.

You could tell he knew there was a defender close so he rushed the attempt. Had a split second longer to get off a better attempt.

Vegas seems to really be focusing on keeping our D out of the offense by playing higher on the wall. Smart on their part since most of our offense comes from there.
