Shutdown Stars: Dallas beats Vegas 1-0 in West final Game 1
EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) - John Klingberg scored on the Stars’ first shot, Anton Khudobin stopped all 25 the Golden Knights put on net, and Dallas beat Vegas 1-0 in a hard-hitting, defensive Game 1 of the Western Conference final.
Khudobin had his first NHL playoff shutout in the Stars’ first 1-0 playoff win in regulation since 2000. Klingberg’s goal 2:36 into the game was all the offense coach Rick Bowness’ team needed.
Dallas played to its identity in a game that had almost double as many hits than shots on goal.
