On paper, this should be a clash of titans: the top team in the NHL (Dallas Stars) hosts the East’s second-ranked club (Montreal Canadiens).
Instead, it’s felt a bit like hammer-on-nail, as the Stars hold a 4-1 lead heading into the first intermission.
There are plenty of impressive moments from Dallas, including Jason Spezza‘s fake-shot-then-goal, but the sequence that finished with Tyler Seguin‘s 4-1 tally captured the one-sided spirit of this one.

Petry suffered an injury that ended his night early.
Here’s the Spezza goal in case you want to gape in awe:
Sometimes this Dallas offense is so dangerous, it almost feels unfair.
Update: Not a whole lot changed in the third, with the Stars ultimately winning 6-2.
