“We knew we wanted to be there, we knew it was going to be a tough day,” said Ryan Suter, the goaltender who stopped 28 shots in the first period, his third shutout of the season.
“We felt like we were ready for Game 7.
We knew we could win.
It was a great game.
We came out of the locker room feeling good and ready to go.” “
Game 7, it was a game that I will never forget.
We came out of the locker room feeling good and ready to go.”
A Game 7 rematch between the Stars and Canadiens is one of the marquee matchups of the postseason, and a rematch between these two teams would be the most anticipated of the playoffs.
The Stars are 8-2-1 against the Canadiens, who are 9-1-1, while the Canadiens are 2-9-0.
The Bruins are 0-9 against the Stars, who have not lost in Dallas since February 1, 2007.
They have not been to Dallas since Feb. 16, 2017, when they defeated the Stars 2-1 in Game 4.
This is the first time in seven years that the Stars have won back-to-back games, as the franchise won the Stanley the previous two seasons.
Game 7 will be the first playoff meeting between the two teams.
Stars coach Ken Hitchcock said the team will not have much time to prepare for Game 6.
“I think it’s going to happen,” Hitchcock said.
“It’s going the right way and we’ll find out how that goes.”

Stars 3, Canadiens 2 The Stars and the Canadiens were tied 1-1 at the midway point of Game 6 before the Stars went on a 4-2 run in the second period to take a 3-2 lead.
They were led by Tyler Seguin’s goal at 13:51 of the second.
“When we started the second half with some of the offensive stuff we did, I thought we were going to win,” Seguins said.
It wasn’t enough.
The Canadiens scored three goals in the third period to extend their lead to 3-1.
After Tyler Segnin’s second goal of the game at 10:16 of the third, the Stars scored two more goals in a 3:08 span to take the lead.
“That’s how we start the second,” Segnins said of the comeback.
“They played some really good hockey and played some great defense.
It’s going in. “
Obviously, we know they’re a really good team, but it’s a really big game for us.
It’s going in.
We know it.
It’ll be a long day tomorrow.”
The Stars led 1-0 at 1:19 of the fourth when Tyler Seo scored his second of the night, but Montreal pulled away to take control of the series.
The Habs scored three more goals midway through the period, and the Stars responded with four more goals on the power play in the final 20 seconds of the period.
Game 6 will be played in Dallas, but the Stars are in Montreal for the remainder of the Eastern Conference Final.
The game will be broadcast live on CBC and Rds (Sports Network) and streamed on TVA.
