Cole’s late breakaway goal lifts Stars over Wild
Question of the Day
Erik Cole scored on a breakaway with 4:49 to play, and the Stars rallied to defeat the Minnesota Wild 4-3 on Saturday night. Lehtonen injured his head in a collision with the Wild’s Erik Haula at 6:37 of the third period.
Haula was given a major penalty for charging - Lehtonen’s helmet came off as he fell backward into the crossbar - and was ejected. Tyler Seguin scored with 26 seconds remaining in the 5-minute power play to tie the game at 3.
“Fourth-liner takes out our goaltender.”
The newly acquired Thomas stopped all six shots he faced for the win in his Stars debut in relief. The Stars acquired the 39-year-old goalie from the Florida Panthers at Wednesday’s trade deadline, giving them another seasoned goalie.
With the game tied at 3, Cole picked up a loose puck at center ice and Wild goalie Darcy Kuemper came out to stop him, but Cole’s shot went past Kuemper and into the upper left corner. Cole also assisted on Seguin’s tying goal.
“We fought hard all game long and kept battling back and were able to grab the lead,” Minnesota coach Mike Yeo said. “And then all of sudden you take a 5-minute major and another mistake after that and you find yourself down, so it’s tough.”
“Bad read on my part,” Ballard said. “I don’t know if I telegraphed it a little bit or I just kind of misjudged how high he was playing in the D zone. Obviously, the guy picked it off.”
Both the tying and winning goals were scored under a banner raised before the game to honor Mike Modano, the franchise’s all-time scoring leader.
Seguin also had two assists, giving him four goals and four assists in two games. Jamie Benn and Alex Chiasson also scored for Dallas.
