DALLAS (AP) — Alexander Radulov started a rally and John Klingberg finished it as Dallas kept firing shots in its busiest period in team history.Klingberg scored the go-ahead goal late in the second period Ryan Strome Jersey , when Dallas scored on four of its team-record 30 shots, and the Stars beat the Anaheim Ducks 5-3 on Saturday night.Connor Carrick and Jamie Benn also scored for Dallas in the second. Tyler Seguin assisted on the goals by Radulov and Benn.The barrage wiped out a 3-0 Anaheim lead and came against Ducks goalie John Gibson, who entered the game 3-0-1 with a 1.44 goals against average.Radulov became the first Dallas player to score a goal in each of the first four games.“It’s always hard to come back from 3-0 down,” Radulov said. “Today the hockey god was on our side.”Klingberg’s goal from the right point to the upper left corner of the net came at 17:46, 2 seconds before a roughing penalty against Gibson expired.“(The power play) was a huge key tonight, especially on that one when the game-winner was scored,” Radulov said. “We were winning all those neutral pucks.”Radek Faksa added a length-of-the-ice, empty-net goal with 1:28 to play.Anton Khudobin, making his Dallas debut in goal, had a good view of the action at the other end of the ice.“It was amazing to see that comeback,” Khudobin said. “If I could have a pillow, I would probably fall asleep.”The NHL record for shots on goal in a period is 33, by the Bruins in the second period of a 3-2 home win over Chicago on March 4, 1941. The franchise record is 32 by the Minnesota North Stars on Dec. 13, 1972, against Philadelphia.The loss was Anaheim’s first. Dallas is 3-1.Anaheim’s Jacob Silfverberg and Kiefer Sherwood had first-period goals Womens Wayne Gretzky Jersey , and Adam Henrique added a power-play goal at 8:09 of the second, when the Ducks had only four shots on goal.At the first intermission, Stars coach Jim Montgomery made changes.“I think it put a little desperation in us,” Montgomery said. “We changed all four lines. I wanted Radulov to get (Valeri) Nichushkin going. I thought (Jason) Spezza would be a good center with that group.”Nichushkin and Spezza assisted on Carrick’s goal.“Those lines all generated chances,” Montgomery said.Gibson made 40 saves while playing the first two periods. Ryan Miller had six in the third.“We hung our goaltender out to dry,” Ducks coach Randy Carlyle said. “That’s inexcusable for a hockey club to put a guy in that type of situation, under siege for 20 minutes. They turned their game up.”Khubodin stopped 22 shots.Anaheim’s first-period goals resulted from long-range shots.Silfverberg took the puck in the right corner, skated around to the left point and sent a wrist shot past a screen by Max Comtois for the first goal at 9:01.At 13:28, Sherwood scored his first NHL goal when he tipped Josh Manson’s shot from the right point up and past Khubodin.Dallas finally took advantage of the huge advantage in shots on goal at 11:14 of the second, when Radulov scored from the left faceoff circle on the Stars’ first power play. At that point, they had outshot Anaheim 28-13.That goal seemed to energize Dallas. On the Stars’ next four shots, they scored twice 9 seconds apart to tie the game at 3.NOTES: Dallas twice has had 25 shots in a period, most recently in the second period against Pittsburgh on March 16, 1997. … Anaheim’s captain, C Ryan Getzlaf, (pulled groin muscle) missed his third game. RW Carter Rowney left the game with an upper-body injury. … Seguin leads the Stars with 10 points (3 goals Aaron Ekblad Jersey , 7 assists). Silfverberg has six points (two goals, four assists) to lead the Ducks.UP NEXTDucks: Complete a quick two-game trip at St. Louis on Sunday.Stars: Play the first of two games in two nights on Monday at Ottawa. NEWARK, N.J. (AP) For the first time since spending $340 million to buy the New Jersey Devils in the summer of 2013, Josh Harris and David Blitzer are getting a chance to see the team play some meaningful games in the final months of the NHL season.Following Saturday’s 2-1 comeback win over the New York Islanders, the Devils hold a five-point lead over Columbus in the race for the top wild-card spot in the Eastern Conference, and a seven-point edge over the Islanders for the second wild-card spot with 20 games left in the regular season.While it is still too early to start celebrating, the Devils’ five-year playoff drought might be ending.”Yeah, I hope we’re going to the playoffs and long run, we’ve said consistently that we want to be an elite Stanley Cup contender year in, year out and there are no shortcuts to that,” Harris said Saturday night in a rare interview after taking part in the ceremony to retire the No. 26 jersey of Patrik Elias, the franchise’s all-time leading scorer.What makes this turnaround remarkable is that the Devils had their worst season in three decades in 2016-17, finishing last in the conference with 70 points.Their win over the Islanders on Saturday night gave them 72 points this season.”We have always said we were going to do things step by step to build long-run winners,” Harris said. ”Sometimes everyone gets impatient and we get impatient. Last year wasn’t great to be me. It’s very exciting to be in the hunt, but we are not done.”Much of the credit for the turnaround has to go to general manager Ray Shero, who came on board in the offseason in 2015. He has revamped the roster with the latest addition being the acquisition of 25-goal scorer Michael Grabner from the Rangers on Thursday in the first deal between the area rivals since the Devils came to New Jersey in 1982.It was just the latest deal by Shero who has acquired forwards Taylor Hall http://www.floridapanthersteamshops.com/authentic-aleksander-barkov-jersey , Kyle Palmieri and Marcus Johansson, defensemen Sami Vatanen and Mirco Mueller and goaltender Eddie Lack in trades and signed free agents John Moore, Brian Boyle, Ben Lovejoy, Will Butcher, Jimmy Hayes and Drew Stafford.Hall is having a career season with 26 goals and 40 assists. His 66 points are 25 more than any player on the team.The bad season last year also helped earn the Devils the No. 1 overall pick in the draft. They got a winner with 19-year-old Nico Hischier, who is centering the top line.”Look when Ray came in in 2015 I still remember him saying things won’t necessarily change overnight, but we’re going to move this in the right direction and that’s all across the organization,” Blitzer said. ”What he has been able to do over the last 2 years, and I think as we look at the future, it has been incredible.”New Jersey still faces an immediate obstacle in its playoff push. Nine of its next 12 games are on the road, including eight with teams in playoff positions heading into Sunday’s games.Blitzer believes the Devils are going to finish what they started this season.”Certain things happen that you plan and certain things happen that you don’t necessarily plan,” he said. ”We got some really interesting pieces that you could not predict at the beginning of the summer. Will Butcher; for Nico to come and do what he is doing. Taylor Hall to turn over what he is doing this season and the leadership he is showing.”It’s just been incredible,” he added. ”I just think you see a team really gelling. It’s also a team not just built for today. This is a team that is built for the future and that’s what makes it so exciting.”—
