Dallas – With the game on the line, Jason Zucker of Las Vegas was in the right spot – right in front of the Dallas Stars net.
Jason’s linemate Mikael Granlund fired a shot, it was blocked by the Dallas goalie and the puck bounced off Jason and went into the net in the third period. Jason was credited with the goal to help the NHL Minnesota Wild beat the Dallas Stars 5-4 before a sellout crowd of 18,532 at the American Airlines Center. Jason was selected as the #1 Star of the Game.
Jason and the Wild are on an amazing 16-1-1 run in their last 18 games.
