Dallas’ stars haven’t fallen yet. The team saved themselves in the NHL playoffs by defeating Vegas in overtime.

After three straight wins, Vegas was set to tie the knot and join Florida in the NHL finals.

William Karlsson didn’t even need five minutes before he directed a pattern counterattack, which he himself ended by directing a shot from Reilly Smith. The goal was Karlsson’s eighth during the playoffs.

Then and there, Vegas was in the finals, but before the period was over, Jason Robertson had equalized for Dallas.

Jonathan Marchessault gave Vegas the lead again in the second, but this time too Robertson was in front and had equalized again before the period whistle.

2–2 was also the score after 60 minutes played. It took a little more than three minutes of overtime before Joe Pavelski was able to capitalize on a numerical advantage. After some ruckus around Adin Hill in the Vegas goal, Pavelski got an opening. He didn’t hesitate and swept in with a shot that found its way to Hill’s right.

Pavelski’s first playoff goal of the year was timely, to say the least. The 4–3 win drops Dallas to 1–3 in games, needing to win all three games in a row to reach the finals.
