Dallas Stars is advancing to the final of the NHL Western Conference Joel Kivirannan winged by a helmet trick when the Colorado Avalanche crashed in game seven 5-4. The other Finnish players in Dallas were also in a good position, for Miro Heiskanen knocked two entry points and Roope Hintz one.
The pebble beach was a real ace from Dallas ’hypothetical sleeve as he was lifted from the spectator side to the settlement ring. The imprint was staggering.
Dallas superhero Kiviranta commented on his performance calmly but contentedly after the match.
– You dream of such a moment as a little boy. I played the first game seven of my life today and didn’t know what to expect. It was a normal hockey match for me! The pebble beach laughs.
– Feels unreal. Hopefully I can play more playoffs, Kiviranta says. After a similar presentation, screen locations are likely to be expected.
The previous three-goal performance in Game Seven must be rewound to 1993, when by the way Wayne Gretzky succeeded in the same trick. Of the Finns in the NHL playoffs, three goals in one match have previously only been knocked out Jari Kurri, Teemu Selänne and Esa Tikkanen, so Kiviranta will be quite handsome with his performance.
Dallas started the match sharply and took the lead after just a couple of minutes of play. Coloradon Mikko Rantasen sitting on his sentence Alexander Radulov punished with force majeure. Heiskanen scored for the goal.
A Colorado rushed back and forth from the setback Vladislav Namstnikovin and Andre Burakovskyn with paints. To start the second set, Kiviranta hit the levels of Dallas with their first goal of the evening. Colorado took back the lead a couple of minutes later in preparation for Rantanen Named Kadrin 3-2 hit.
The last ten minutes of the final batch was a roller coaster of emotions. After Radulov leveled the game to 3-3, Namestnikov put Colorado back in the lead, which lasted just 10 seconds. The Finns of Dallas plotted a tie from the next attack: Kiviranta as the scorer, Hintz and Heiskanen as the scorers.
The match was extended to overtime, where the hero’s cloak was captured by Kiviranta, who played a great match and whose goal, which complemented his helmet trick, took Dallas to the next. Kiviranta had not yet succeeded in scoring in the playoffs before the decision, but this time the attacker’s gunpowder was parched.
The winner of the Vegas Golden Knights – Vancouver Canucks match will be played against Dallas in the conference final on Saturday morning. The Vegas-Vancouver match series has also stretched to a decisive seventh encounter.
