    McDavid gets the winner in the 2nd OT after Oilers overcome captain's penalty to beat Stars 3-2

    Oilers captain Connor McDavid felt absolutely miserable sitting in the penalty box after he was called for a double-minor penalty only seconds into the first overtime of the Western Conference Final opener. After his teammates bailed out McDavid with yet another penalty kill, they were mobbing him when he scored only 32 seconds into the second overtime on a tip-in from Evan Bouchard to give Edmonton a 3-2 win over the Dallas Stars on Thursday night. “It was nice to score an overtime goal," McDavid said.

    Duchene scores winner in 2nd OT, Stars advance to Western Conference final with 2-1 win over Avs

    DENVER | Matt Duchene took off down the ice, slid on his knees and pumped his right glove. Duchene scored at 11:42 of the second overtime after being involved in a play that led to a goal disallowed for goaltender interference in the first extra period, and the Stars advanced with a 2-1 victory over the Colorado Avalanche in Game 6 on Friday night. Duchene, a 2009 draft pick of the Avalanche, secured a loose puck in front of the net and sent it over a sprawled out Alexandar Georgiev to start the celebration. “Just elation,” Duchene said.

Dallas began these playoffs with a seven-game series over the Vegas Golden Knights, who last year beat the Stars in a six-game West final and then won the Stanley Cup.
