Jason Robertson He had a goal and help, Jimmy Ben And the Rob Hintz Each of two passes, and Jake Oettinger Made 32 saves for Dallas (4-0-1).

“I think we understand what the team is there,” Pavelski said. “They have a lot of firepower. They play fast, they play with some confidence so the challenge for us was, it’s early, we played really well, don’t take these guys too seriously because they played put it on some teams early. If you mess with the disc, they can turn around. And burn and get to you. And I’ve seen it sometimes. When they had the momentum, they were coming.

“It’s a great story for all the kids out there,” Debor said. “I mean, this is the guy who was a late pick (7th round, No. 205 in the 2003 NHL Draft). Everyone told him he was too young and too slow. He just keeps showing up there and proving everyone wrong every night.”
