2nd Intermission Report: Stars 1 - Canucks 3

Dallas finally (finally!!) got past Cory Schneider as Steve Ott scored five minutes into the period. Steve Ott won a face-off in the offensive zone and Jamie Benn put up a shot from Schneider's left. He made the save but gave up a fat rebound that Ott jumped on. Otter had his first rebound chance stopped but get the puck again and got it past Schneider to tie it up at 1-1.

Benn has been a big part of this game and was a major influence again in this goal. He leads the team with four shots on goal and has been buzzing all day around the net.

Dallas could have been up 3-1 but oh my word Cory Schneider is a great goalie. He made three absolutely amazing jaw dropping saves. He stoned Loui Eriksson from a foot away while the Stars had a two-on-one shorthanded opportunity and Vernon Fiddler point-blank in the slot.

Those saves were made even more important because the Canucks would score a power play goal later in the period. Adam Pardy tripped Dale Weise as he was in on goal to send the Canucks on the man-advantage. Sami Salo blasted a shot from the point and a screened Kari Lehtonen couldn't see the puck.

Andrew Alberts then scored a killer goal also from the back. Vancouver had a rush after Schneider made another big save and Alberts ended up with the puck to Lehtonen's right and with absolutely no one around him. He skated forward ten feet and blasted a shot by Lehtonen to put Vancouver up 3-1.
