Stars End Road Drought in Montreal

Dallas Stars earn their first road win of the season in a 4-1 win over the Montreal Canadiens.

The Dallas Stars won their first road game of the season Tuesday night in Montreal beating the Canadiens 4-1. Devin Shore lead the way with one goal and two assists. Miro Heiskanen, Esa Lindell, and Alexander Radulov all added goals of their own.

After a disappointing loss in Detroit on Sunday, the Stars were able to weather an early Montreal storm and score the always important first goal of the game when Shore found Esa Lindell for the defenseman’s first goal of the season.

Heiskanen made it 2-0 on an impressive wrist shot in the second period, Shore scored after Montreal turned the puck over in front of their own net, and Radulov added an empty-net tally late in the third period.

Ben Bishop was strong in net tonight stopping 34 of 35 shots. The Stars finish the month of October with 12 points in 11 games (6 wins and 5 losses).

Dallas continues its road trip on Thursday night traveling to Toronto to skate against the Maple Leafs.
