For a second consecutive year, the Dallas Stars will participate in the Western Conference final.

Indeed, they won 2 to 1 in the second overtime period in game number 6 of their second round duel against the Avalanche in Colorado, Friday evening.

However, it was certainly not easy for the Texan team, who thought they had won the game when Mason Marchment shook the ropes during the first overtime period.

However, his success was refused by the officials due to an obstruction on goalkeeper Alexandar Georgiev by Matt Duchene. But since chance does things well, it was the latter who sealed the outcome of the match after taking advantage of a free puck close to the semi-circle from the “Avs” goaltender.

The Avalanche, who forced a sixth clash on Wednesday by winning 5-3, started the match off to a flying start.

After coming up against goalkeeper Jake Oettinger numerous times in the first period, the local favorites finally managed to open the scoring in the second period on a power play on a goal from Mikko Rantanen.

The latter accepted a pass from Jonathan Drouin before hitting the mark with a surgically precise shot which lodged in the left corner of Oettinger’s goal.

At the start of the third period, Stars captain Jamie Benn took responsibility by leveling the score. The number 14 made a nice feint to beat Georgiev after a nice serve from Evgenii Dadonov.

The Russian goalkeeper made 36 saves in the defeat. Oettinger stopped 29 pucks.

The Stars will face the winner of the series between the Edmonton Oilers and Vancouver Canucks in the next round.
