Just as he did in the first round vs Nashville, Tampa Bay Juniors alumnus Roope Hintz stole the show on offense as he lifted Dallas to a 4-2 victory over St. Louis in Game 2.
With the victory, Dallas has seized home-ice advantage as they return home for Game 3 on Monday Night.
Hintz' three-point evening (2G, 1A) proved critical for Dallas, as his first-period goal and assist helped to spark the Stars' offense. He'd go on to score on the empty net to seal the victory, 4-2.
Following the game, Hintz spoke to the media on the relationship he has built with teammate Miro Heiskanen (1G), whom he assisted on his goal late in the first period.
