The Stanley Cup semi-finals continue in the National Hockey League (NHL). In the game at number three, the Dallas Stars club, thanks to the accurate throw of the Russian striker Alexander Radulov, snatched victory from the Vegas Golden Knights team (3: 2) in the first minute of overtime and led the series with a score of 2-1.
“Stars” twice in the match came out ahead, the goals were scored by Jamie Oleksyak (40 ') and team captain Jamie Benn (48'). However, the "knights" in both cases, thanks to the effective actions of Shi Theodore (44 ') and Mark Stone (53'), restored the balance.
Dallas scored for the third time. And the “stars” did it in the first minute of overtime, when it was no longer possible to recoup “Vegas”: Alexander Radulov flew into the opponent's zone on the starboard side, received a pass from a partner, got close to the goalkeeper and threw irresistibly, bringing “Dallas” a second victory in the semi-final confrontation.
The real hero of the meeting was the goalkeeper of the "Stars" club Anton Khudobin. No matter how the attack of "Vegas" tried to break through the Russian gate guard, they failed to do it more than twice. The Russian reflected 38 shots and was rightfully recognized as the first star of the match, Radulov - the second.
