During the second period of the high-stakes matchup between the Dallas Stars and Minnesota Wild, chaos ensued after a hard hit by Wild defenseman Matt Dumba on Stars center Joe Pavelski. The hit left Pavelski’s head knocking hard on the ice, leading to a two-minute minor penalty for Dumba. This caused Pavelski’s teammate, Max Domi, to go after Dumba, resulting in a chaotic situation on the ice.
Dumba, known for his aggressive style of play and risk-taking, has been a pillar of the Wild’s blue line and has had a successful career in the NHL. The 28-year-old defenseman has won the King Clancy Memorial Trophy and played a crucial role in helping the Wild during the playoff series against the St. Louis Blues in 2015. Despite suffering a season-ending injury during the 2018-19 season, Dumba made a comeback in the 2019-20 season and continued to contribute to the Wild’s success.
As of writing this story, the matchup between the Stars and Wild remains tied at 2-2 after the end of the second period. Kirill Kaprizov and Sam Steel scored for the Wild, while Roope Hintz and Jason Robertson scored for the Stars. The tension remains high, and fans eagerly await the outcome of the game.
