Stars Finish Off Golden Knights


The Dallas Stars have advanced to the Stanley Cup final for the first time in 20 years.

The Stars erased a two-goal deficit in the last half of the third period before Denis Gurianov scored on a one-timer during a power play 3:36 into overtime to give the Stars a 3-2 triumph over Vegas.

The Stars are 5-0 in overtime this post-season.
They also won 3-2 in Game 3 against Vegas, when Alexander Radulov scored 31 seconds into OT.

Reilly Smith scored just 15 seconds into the third period to put the Golden Knights ahead, 2-0.

The lead held until Jamie Benn scored for the first time in 11 games, beating Robin Lehner midway through the third.

Rookie Joel Kiviranta tied it on a power play with 3:47 remaining in regulation.

Anton Khudobin had 34 saves to help the Stars close out the Western Conference final in five games.
