2nd Intermission Report: Stars 0 - Sharks 3

Dallas followed up that pitiful first period with another unimpressive 20 minutes of hockey. Dallas just couldn't get any kind of pressure on Antti Niemi let alone score a goal. Dallas had a power play in the first six minutes of the period but spent more time outside of the zone then inside of the zone. There's just no urgency to the team.

The Sharks would score a four-on-four goal as a Marc-Edouard Vlasic shot was tipped in by Joe Pavelski again. Vlasic's shot was from the blue line and Pavelski got in front of Sheldon Souray and tipped the puck by Lehtonen to put the Sharks up 3-0.

Again, there's nothing positive for Dallas. The Stars look lethargic, which is the usual on the second night of a back-to-back. They aren't winning puck battles, or even trying to win them and they were outshot 14-8 in the period. They didn't reach double digit shots in the game until there five minutes left in the second and are being outshot 27-14 in the game. There's only been one good chance to score all game for Dallas.
