Spezza potted the game-winning goal on the power play in Monday's Game 6 win over the Blues. The former Senator piled on the last of three goals in the first period, which prompted the yanking of Brian Elliott from the Blues' crease. Spezza has been the real deal in 12 games this postseason, ringing up 13 points, two-game winning goals and a healthy 30 shots on goal, which has been a godsend for the Stars given the extended absence of superstar sniper Tyler Seguin (lower body).
Spezza scored for the third straight game and added three assists in Sunday's series-clinching Game 6 win over the Wild. Spezza has been huge for the Stars this postseason, racking up nine points in six games. The 32-year-old is a talented sniper who built off his 33-goal debut season with Dallas and carried the strong play into the playoffs. Look for Spezza, who has 22 shots on goal thus far, to continue playing a key role for the Stars in their playoff run.
Spezza paced the Dallas attack with a goal and an assist during Wednesday's 3-2 win in Minnesota despite seeing a series-low 14:31 of ice time. Spezza met his series average with 22 shifts, but they were consistently considerably shorter, which is why he logged over three minutes less than his previous low in ice time. The veteran forward has a pair of two-point games and a pair of clunkers so far, but his two goals and two assists in four playoff games represent a sustainable pace following a 33-goal, 30-assist campaign.
Spezza lit the lamp on six shots and tacked on a power-play assist in Thursday's 4-0 victory over the Wild in Game 1. Spezza is no stranger to the postseason, as the 32-year-old has appeared in 56 contests (all with Ottawa) coming into Thursday's matchup with Minnesota. In that span, the center notched 52 points, and if you throw in his 33 markers and 30 apples this year, it's almost as if you expect Spezza to reach the scoresheet in Game 1. Well, he did just that, and the veteran is poised to help lead Dallas on a run to the Stanley Cup.
Spezza notched a hat trick -- one power-play goal -- in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Predators. Wait, Spezza was supposed to have an illness? The 32-year-old showed no ill-effects, registering his second hat trick of the year to polish out the regular season. The veteran center ends just one shy of tying his career-high 34 tallies, but he did eclipse his 62-point total from last year's first campaign with Dallas. Spezza looks hungry for more as the Stars prepare for the playoffs.
