Stars Drop First Game Against Blackhawks

Dallas Stars v Chicago Blackhawks

With the NHL regular season ending, Dallas drops the first of a two-game series against the Blackhawks in Chicago. Denis Gurianov and Mark Pysyk scored while Anton Khudobin made 21 stops for the Stars, who have now lost six of their last seven games. Dallas has now missed the playoffs in nine of the last 13 seasons after being eliminated from postseason contention when Nashville clinched the final spot in the Central Division with a win over Carolina on Saturday night. The Stars conclude their season tonight against the Blackhawks.
