After an uneventful and scoreless first period, the Dallas Stars opened just over nine minutes into the second with a goal off of Antoine Roussel, one third of the “Fak’Em” line, as it’s been dubbed by Stars fans and writers. Roussel, along with Radek Faksa and Ales Hemsky, have a combined 11 points (6 goals, 5 assists) between them, making them the second most productive forward line for the Stars.
St. Louis tied up the scoring just over halfway through the third with a goal from Kevin Shattenkirk assisted by Colton Parayko and Patrik Berglund. Not even four minutes later, the Stars’ “Fak’Em” line took the ice and Radek Faksa scored his second goal of the postseason and put the Stars ahead 2-1. Faksa’s goal would end up being the game-winner.
