Hintz scores first trick as Stars defeat Hurricanes 4-1 – NBC 5 Dallas-Fort Worth

Rob Hintz scored his first hat-trick in his football career in the last minutes, and the Dallas Stars beat the Carolina Hurricanes 4-1 on Tuesday night for their fifth straight win.

Joe Pavlesky had a goal and two assists for the Stars, who topped 40-17 and won six consecutive home games – the current longest winning streak in the National Hockey League. Holtby, who played his 500th game in the regular season, made 39 saves in scoring his second straight win.

Jesperi Kotkaniemi ended Holtby’s closing attempt 3-1/2 minutes into the third half and Frederik Andersen blocked 13 shots for the Hurricanes, which had been 1-3 in the last five games.

Hintz has 10 goals in his last nine games and three winners in Dallas’ last six wins.

Hintz, Pavelsky and Jason Robertson’s streak has scored 12 goals and made 11 assists in Dallas’ last five games, and Felski has multiple points in his last three.

Hintz lunged into the attack zone down the left side, shot a wrestler from the left circle and lifted the bouncing upper shelf 1:13 for the first goal of the match.

Dallas doubled their lead about 5 minutes before the break with Hintz and Pavelsky in a two-on-one rush. Hintz hung on the lane for a second and then lifted the puck over Andersen’s right shoulder.

Pavlesky cashed in a shot from Robertson at 9:31 of the third period in the seventh of the season.

Hintz’s empty netter traveled all the way from inside the Dallas Blue Line with about 3 minutes remaining in third.

Hurricanes lost defense officials Tony DeAngelo and Brett Pesci, who entered COVID-19 protocols on Monday. DeAngelo is fifth among the Defenders with 19 points. Fellow defender Ethan Bear has been in protocol since last week.

Notes

All-Star coach Rick Bowness has trained in his 2,500th game of the regular season as a head coach or assistant coach, the most in National Hockey League history. . Hurricanes coach Rod Brendamore was fined $250,000 by the National Hockey League on Tuesday for conduct during Sunday’s loss to Washington. The NHL did not provide any details, but the News & Observer in Raleigh, North Carolina noted that Brind’Amour was furious with a third-inning penalty against Carolina.
