Jamie Benn scored a goal 11 minutes into the second period to knot the game at two goals apiece. The Stars would wind up losing Game 1 by a score of 3-2 in regulation.
Benn's goal came just nine seconds after fellow forward Denis Gurianov potted one to get the Stars on the board. Despite Benn stepping up as a leader, the Stars still failed to win Game 1. Benn and Dallas now must find a way to avoid falling behind early in the series as they prepare for Game 2 on Thursday.
