Left wing Mats Zuccarello potted a goal (1-0=1) against the Predators in Game 3 of the 2019 Western Conference First Round. His two goals (2-0=2) through the first three games of the First Round are the most goals he's ever recorded through the first three contests of a Stanley Cup Playoff series. With one more goal vs. Nashville, Zuccarello will match his career-best of three goals in one postseason series (most: 3 goals, 2017 Eastern Conference First Round vs. Montreal). On April 2 vs. the Philadelphia Flyers, he made his return to the lineup after missing 17 regular-season games with a broken arm, tallying an assist (0-1=1) and logging 18:23 time on ice. He made his regular-season debut in a Dallas Stars sweater on Feb. 24 at United Center against the Chicago Blackhawks. The forward registered two points (1-1=2), four shots on goal and a +3 plus/minus rating in 13:35 TOI before leaving the game with an upper body injury. Zuccarello became the fourth player since the Stars franchise relocated to Dallas in 1993 to record two-or-more points in his first game with the club after being acquired via trade in the regular season. He joined Brandon Segal on Feb. 13, 2010 at Phoenix (1-1=2), Brad Richards on Feb. 28, 2008 vs. Chicago (0-5=5) and Randy McKay on March 20, 2002 vs. St. Louis (0-2=2) as the only other players to accomplish this feat. Zuccarello, 31, has posted 40 points (12-28=40) in 48 total regular-season games between the New York Rangers and Dallas this season. He has now made seven appearances (2011, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2019) in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. In 63 career Stanley Cup Playoff games, he has posted 33 points (13-20=33).
Oh captain, my captain!
Captain Jamie Benn logged an assist (0-1=1) on Monday night in Game 3 of the First Round against Nashville. He inked the scoresheet in the postseason at American Airlines Center for the first time since posting two points (1-1=2) in Game 2 of the 2016 Western Conference Second Round vs. St. Louis. Benn now has points in three consecutive postseason games (1-2=3), his longest postseason point streak since tallying points in all six games of the 2016 Western Conference First Round vs. Minnesota (4-6=10). The captain leads the Stars with three points (1-2=3) in three Stanley Cup Playoff games, while sharing first on the club with seven hits and ranking fourth with 10 shots on goal. During the 2018-19 campaign, Benn registered 53 points (27-26=53) in 78 regular-season games. He finished third on Dallas with 27 goals and a 14.3% shooting percentage, while he also ranked third on the team with 53 points and a +14 plus/minus rating. Additionally, he ranked fourth on the squad with 26 assists and finished second on the Stars with eight power play goals. The native of Victoria, B.C. has now made three appearances (2014, 2016, 2019) in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. In 22 career Stanley Cup Playoff games, he has posted 23 points (10-13=23).
