Joe Pavelski scored a pair of goals last night (May 7), including the game-winner midway through the third period as the Dallas Stars took a two games to one lead in their Western Conference first-round series with the Calgary Flames.

The 37-year-old Pavelski has both game-winners for the Stars in the series and has scored 14 in his career, seventh-most in the NHL since 1990.

Radek Faksa with his first of the series opened the scoring for Dallas and Roope Hintz added an empty netter, also his first of the playoffs.  Trevor Lewis scored his first of the playoffs for the Flames on a goal that was reviewed to determine if Milan Lucic interfered with Dallas goalie Jake Ottinger.  Elias Lindholm with his second of the series gave the Flames a short-lived 2 - 1 lead early in the second period.

Johnny Gaudreau had an opportunity to tie it for Calgary when he was sent in alone on a breakaway with four minutes to play but was stoned by Ottinger who blocked 39 of 41 shots in the game for the Stars who fired 31 shots at Calgary goalie Jakob Markstrom.  

Former Airdrie Xtreme Dillon Dube was held off the scoresheet but fired two shots on goal during his 11:55 of ice-time.  

Game three of the best of seven goes tomorrow night (May 9) in Dallas.

Tonight the Edmonton Oilers will try to move up three games to one on the Los Angeles Kings when the teams meet in L.A.
