The Stars needed something on this one, and they got through on the 5 on 3, which has been tough for them this season (OK, everything's been tough for them this season).
Brad Richards rocketed this one, and it hit either the foot or the stick of Kings defenseman Sean O'Donnell with 21.2 seconds remaining in the first period. So it's something in what was otherwise a pretty forgettable first for the Stars. Honestly, you're lagging ridiculously behind everyone else in the standings. What more motivation do you need to actually show some spark?!
Stars will have 1:09 remaining on their second power play at the start of the second.
