EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) — Denis Gurianov scored on a one-timer during a power play 3:36 into overtime, and the Dallas Stars beat the Vegas Golden Knights 3-2 to advance to the Stanley Cup Final for the first time since 2000.
The Stars forced overtime in Game 5 of the Western Conference final with two goals in the final 10:06 of regulation.
They closed it out after Zach Whitecloud was sent off for delay of game for knocking the puck out of play. Anton Khudobin had 34 saves for Dallas, facing only one shot in overtime.
Captain Jamie Benn and Joel Kiviranta, a rookie like Gurianov, got the Stars even with goals in the third period.
