Even though they let a two-goal lead slip away with less than 10 minutes to play, the Stars were able to escape with a 5-4 win to even their series at one game each.

It was probably not the type of game you would have expected from these two teams given their offensive struggles throughout the season.

- Flames forward Matthew Tkachuk . Ilya Mikheyev scored 33 seconds into the first period, and Morgan Rielly had a goal and two assists for the Toronto Maple Leafs in a 4- 2 win against the Montreal Canadiens in an exhibition game at Scotiabank Arena on Tuesday.


Defenseman Jamie Oleksiak scored the game-winning goal with less than a minute to play in regulation when he found himself alone in the Calgary zone, taking advantage of a blown line change. That goal came just minutes after the Stars had allowed the Flames to tie the game and was set up by a beautiful pass from veteran winger Corey Perry.

Perry also scored a goal of his own earlier in the game.

Oleksiak’s goal is a massive one because it helped the Stars avoid what would have been a devastating collapse that would have put them in a two-game hole in the series. It would have been extremely difficult to climb back out of it.

While leading by two goals with less than eight minutes to play, the Stars were on a power play with a chance to put the game out of reach. It was at that point that Tobias Rieder scored a shorthanded goal to bring the Flames within one. Just a few minutes later, the Flames tied the game on a Sam Bennett power play goal just after Dallas’ Alexander Radulov had been called for an offensive zone penalty.

Hurricanes sweep Rangers, become 1st team to advance to Round of 16

  Hurricanes sweep Rangers, become 1st team to advance to Round of 16 The Carolina Hurricanes became the first team to advance out of the qualifying round, sweeping the New York Rangers with a 4-1 victory in Game 3 of their best-of-five series Tuesday night. Sebastian Aho provided the dagger to push Carolina's lead to 3-1 midway through the third period, and the star forward added an empty-netter in the final minute to finish with three points on the night. Warren Foegele and Teuvo Teravainen also scored for the Hurricanes, while Chris Kreider netted the only Rangers' only goal. Copyright © 2020 Score Media Ventures Inc. All rights reserved.

At that point it appeared as if the game was going to overtime, until Oleksiak scored his winning goal.

He was not the only Stars defenseman that had a huge game on Thursday.

Miro Heiskanen was the best player on the ice for either team, scoring a pair of goals and looking like a future Norris Trophy winner on pretty much every shift.

The numbers paint a pretty striking picture as to how dominant he was in this game. With Heiskanen on the ice during 5-on-5 play (nearly 20 minutes), the Stars held a 19-10 shot attempt advantage, a 14-5 shots on goal advantage, and a 3-0 goals edge with Heiskanen himself scoring two of the goals.

This game also featured a little bit of controversy thanks to a disallowed goal early in the third period.

With the Flames trailing by two, they appeared to get back to within one when Andrew Mangiapane appeared to score a goal five minutes into the period. Upon further review, though, it was determined that Mangiapane had used to a distinct kicking motion to put the puck in the net. What made it such a controversial play is the fact he was being hauled down to the ice as his skate made contact with the puck. The officials saw it as a kick and took the goal off the board.

That play was especially damaging for the Flames because it also resulted in an injury to Matthew Tkachuk.

Just before the Mangiapane sequence, Tkachuk was sandwiched between Jamie Benn and Oleksiak on a play that left him clearly shaken up. He exited the game and did not return.

Gallery: NHL history from the year you were born (Stacker)

a group of football players posing for a photo: Even though the National Hockey League's 103rd season was cut short by the COVID-19 pandemic, the year was still somewhat saved with the exciting announcement of the Seattle Kraken team name—the league's newest franchise. Set to debut in 2021, this team will join a historic league that is always filled with surprising moments, unexpected upsets, and iconic athletes that have become household names.  The NHL has one of the richest traditions in all of the professional sports. There may be no trophy more revered than Lord Stanley’s Cup (despite some of the more risqué situations the silver prize has been a part of). Not to mention the Zambonis, fuzzy mascots, and a sport where fighting is all but accepted as part of the flow of the game.  Digging through a variety of NHL record books and historical sources, Stacker takes a look at NHL history from the year you were born, beginning with 1917. Back then, the league only had four teams all based in Canada, but over the years the NHL grew into the massive sports enterprise it is today. Reasons for growth include entrepreneurial owners, the expansion of the game into non-traditional (and warm-weather) hockey markets, and of course, the creation of superstars who marketed the game beyond North America, like Wayne Gretzky, Gordie Howe, and Mario Lemieux.  Click through to learn about the NHL’s pioneers, its unbelievable feats, and how hockey has become ingrained in the cultural fabric of the U.S. and Canada more and more each year. Please note that the year associated with each slide is referencing the hockey season which begins in the fall and ends in the following year during spring. Few companies have a history like the NHL and 104 years is quite a span—enough time to grow quite the gnarly playoff beard.
