"I don't think (Bishop) had as hard a night as he had on others, but he managed the traffic in front of him really well."Klingberg provided the offense 1:16 into the second period. He took a cross-ice pass from Miro Heiskanen at the blue line, skated to the top of the right circle and sent a wrist shot into the net off the left post."Post in, that's nice because it's usually post out," Klingberg said.

Mika Zibanejad received a major penalty for boarding and a game misconduct when he knocked the Stars' Radek Faksa out of the game midway through the third."The linesman called it and he felt that (Zibanejad) hit (Faksa) in the head," Rangers coach David Quinn said. "That was the call, that was the explanation I got, and we had to kill a five-minute major."The goalies had 11 saves each in the first period.Georgiev had more difficult chances in the first. He stopped Faksa on a breakaway and gloved Jamie Benn's shot from the top of the left circle off a faceoff.Bishop's best was at 17:40 on Vladislav Nemestnikov's shot as he skated down the slot.Dallas killed three penalties in the first two periods.
