Stars Defy Reality With Two Goals in Final 15 Seconds to Beat Predators

The Dallas Stars won their 20th game of the season in remarkable fashion on Saturday.

The Stars extended their winning streak to three straight games after scoring two goals over the final 15 seconds of the game.

Dallas, which trailed the Nashville Predators 2–0 heading into the third period, got on the board when Evgenii Dadonov scored at the 8:22 mark of the third period.

Following the club’s first goal of the contest, the quest was on for the game-tying goal. After pulling goaltender Scott Wedgewood, in favor of an extra attacker, Craig Smith tied the game at 2–2 with just 13 seconds remaining in regulation. 

Defenseman Jani Hakanpää capped off the incredible win after his slap-shot slide past Nashville’s Juuse Saros with only two seconds remaining.

The Stars improved to 10-3-3 on the road with the victory. The game drops a red-hot Nashville squad to 8–3 over their last 11 games.

Nashville will look to bounce back when they return to action on Wednesday when they host the Carolina Hurricanes at Bridgestone Arena.
