The once and future Kling
Defenseman John Klingberg potted the game-winning goal (1-0=1) against the Blues in Game 4 of the Second Round on Wednesday night. Klingberg scored his second game-winning goal of the 2019 Stanley Cup Playoffs and matched the franchise record for most in a postseason by a defenseman, a mark set by Lou Nanne in the 1971 Stanley Cup Playoffs. In Game 6 of the First Round vs. Nashville, Klingberg potted the series-clinching overtime goal (1-0=1) and became the third defenseman in franchise history to record a postseason overtime goal, joining Paul Cavallini (Game 3 of the 1994 Western Conference Quarterfinals vs. St. Louis, W, 5-4) and Mattias Norstrom (Game 3 of the 2008 Western Conference Semifinals vs. San Jose, W, 2-1). He posted the first overtime playoff goal on home ice for the club since Brenden Morrow potted the series-clinching goal during the fourth overtime period in Game 6 of the 2008 Western Conference Semifinals vs. San Jose (W, 2-1 4OT). The native of Gothenburg, Sweden has registered eight points (2-6=8) in 10 games during the 2019 postseason. He leads the team and shares first among all players in the postseason with a +8 plus/minus rating. Additionally, he is tied for first in the NHL and paces all League blueliners with two postseason game-winning goals. He is one of only two defensemen (other: Brooks Orpik) to record an overtime goal in the 2019 Stanley Cup Playoffs. Klingberg has skated in 23 career postseason games and has recorded 12 points (3-9=12).

Hip, hip Roope
Rookie Roope Hintz potted a goal (1-0=1) in Game 4 of the Second Round vs. St. Louis on Wednesday night and has earned points in three of his last four postseason contests (3-2=5). His five goals (5-3=8) in the 2019 Stanley Cup Playoffs are the most in a postseason by a Dallas Stars rookie (1993-present) and the most in a postseason by a franchise rookie (1967-present) since Brian Bellows recorded five goals during the 1983 Stanley Cup Playoffs. The native of Tampere, Finland has skated in 10 Stanley Cup Playoff contests, sharing first on the team and fifth among all NHL players with five goals. Among League rookies in the 2019 Stanley Cup Playoffs, he shares first in points (8), goals (5) and assists (3), while he ranks second in shots on goal (22). In Game 2 of the Second Round against the Blues, he notched a postseason career-high three points (2-1=3). He recorded the most points ever by a Dallas Stars rookie (1993-present) in a Stanley Cup Playoff game, surpassing the previous record of two points which was most recently matched by Hintz in Game 4 of the First Round against Nashville (2-0=2). In the history of the franchise (1967-present), his three points are the most recorded in a single postseason game by a rookie since forward Don Barber recorded three points (2-1=3) in Game 4 of the 1990 Norris Division Semifinals against the Chicago Blackhawks (W, 4-0).

Mats is the man
Left wing Mats Zuccarello recorded two assists (0-2=2) in Game 4 against the Blues and now has points in postseason career-best four consecutive games (0-6=6). On Wednesday night, the forward tallied the eighth postseason multi-point game and the fifth postseason multi-assist game of his career. Zuccarello has skated in 10 games during the 2019 Stanley Cup Playoffs, recording nine points (3-6=9). The forward's nine points in 2019 are the second-most he's ever recorded in a single postseason, eclipsed only by his 13 points (5-8=13) in 25 games during the 2015 Stanley Cup Playoffs with the New York Rangers. Among all Dallas players, he is tied for first in points (9), while he shares second in assists (6) and third in goals (3). Since being acquired via trade from the Rangers on Feb. 23, Zuccarello has appeared in a combined 12 games (regular season and postseason) with Dallas and has recorded 12 points (4-8=12), a +7 plus/minus rating and 24 shots on goal. The native of Oslo, Norway has made seven appearances (2011, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2019) in the Stanley Cup Playoffs and has posted 40 points (14-26=40) in 70 postseason contests.
