Stars and Blues Tied at 2 and Canes Go for the Sweep

The Stars downed the Blues 4-2 in Dallas to even their second-round playoff series at two.  

Roope Hintz scored his fifth playoff goal to give Dallas a 4-1 lead entering the third period. 

Blues goalie Jordan Binnington says they were outworked in this loss but hey'll be ready for the next game.

That series is now tied 2-2 and returns to St Louis for game 5 on Friday.

Elsewhere in the NHL on Wednesday, it was a night Curtis McElhinney will remember. 

At 35-years-old and 343 days, he became the oldest goalie in NHL history to make his first playoff start.

He stopped 28 shots to give the Hurricanes a 5-2 win and a 3-0 series lead over the Islanders.

Carolina has a chance to sweep the series on Friday night.
