SportsBlues players, fans furious after Sharks win Game 3 on hand pass goal
Stars switch top lines and beat Blues 4-2 to even series 2-2
DALLAS — Rookie Roope Hintz scored his fifth goal of the playoffs, Tyler Seguin and Alexander Radulov each had two assists and the Dallas Stars beat the St. Louis Blues 4-2 on Wednesday night to even the second-round series at two games each. Rookie coach Jim Montgomery made a significant change by switching up his top two lines, and the move paid off for Dallas. Seguin skated on a line with Jason Dickinson and Mats Zuccarello. That put Hintz, instead of Seguin, with Radulov and captain Jaime Benn. Dickinson, Jason Spezza and John Klingberg also scored for the Stars, who were down 1-0 only five minutes into the game.

Such a play is not reviewable, which is why the game ended on the goal. Blues center Brayden Schenn slammed his stick against the glass in anger, as did goalie Jordan Binnington.
