The Stars got a little messy for a moment, and Patrick Kane made them pay. Kane came through the right circle relatively unscathed, and a sweet pass and a sweeter wrister later, this game was tied 1-1.
Too bad, because the Stars did so many things right in that period. Dictated the pace for most of the period, held the Blackhawks shotless through the first 10 and a half minutes, it was all pretty good. Definitely a period off which to build for the Stars, however, so we'll see if they come through with the same energy in period 2.
