Dallas Wins a Marathon

Francois GendronSenior Writer IMay 5, 2008

The Stanley Cup is without any doubt the hardest trophy to conquer and we had another example of it in game six of the series opposing the Dallas Stars and the San Jose Sharks.

Both teams were involved in the 8th longest NHL playoff game in history. Four overtime periods were needed and the game lasted a total of 129 minutes and 3 seconds. The game finally ended at 2:26 AM Eastern time with the winning goal from Brenden Morrow of the Dallas Stars.

Both goaltenders, Marty Turco and Evgeni Nabokov, entertained hockey fans with spectacular saves to keep the game alive. Among those spectacular saves, Nabokov robbed Brad Richards with a great glove save during the first overtime. At the other end of the ice, Marty Turco matched his opponent's work with some goaltending clinic saves of his own all night long.

Turco ended the game with a total of 61 saves while Nabokov stopped 53 shots before allowing the winning goal to Morrow.

Final score: Dallas Stars 2 - San Jose Sharks 1 (4th overtime)
(Dallas wins the series by 4-2)

P.S. I am sorry for not bringing you any news for the last ten days. I have moved to a different location and did not have internet connection until today. But now everything is back to normal and I will continue my daily sport blabbing. :)
