NHL Playoffs 2014: Anaheim Ducks score twice on Dallas Stars in first period (GIF)

The Anaheim Ducks are looking to take a commanding 3-1 series lead and put the upstart Stars up against the ropes. So far, their plan to take that series lead is working out alright as they added two early goals in the first period to jump out to a nice lead.

Bryan Allen scored first for the Ducks with Patrick Maroon following roughly six minutes later in the period.

The Ducks are one of the best teams in the NHL this season and they were favored to win this series, so this lead comes as no surprise. But we can’t sleep on the Stars as they’re capable of coming out of nowhere — much like they have all season long — and the series isn’t over until someone is out.
