Stars get on the board, Bruins lead 4-1

Posted By DJ Bean On February 3, 2011 @ 8:53 pm In General | No Comments

The Stars finally got on the board in the second period, but the Bruins still hold a 4-1 lead after 40 minutes.

Daniel Paille [1] had the most notable play of the period, and it wasn’t for a good reason. With Stars winger Raymond Sawada skating into the Bruins’ zone, Paille blindsided him between the top of the circles, getting him tossed with a five-minute major and a match penalty. As Bruins fans should know, there is no need for that in the game, and it was definitely a play worthy of a suspension.

The Stars got their goal from Karlis Skrastins, as the Dallas defenseman scored his third of the season at 10:36 on a play Tyler Seguin [2] could have easily prevented.

Adam McQuaid nearly scored his first goal of the season, but it was called off due to a really questionable goaltender interference call on Blake Wheeler [3].
