EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) — John Klingberg scored on the Stars’ first shot, Anton Khudobin stopped all 25 the Golden Knights put on net and Dallas bea Vegas 1-0 in a hard-hitting, defensive Game 1 of the Western Conference final. Khudobin had his first NHL playoff shutout in the Stars’ first 1-0 playoff win in regulation since 2000. Klingberg’s goal 2:36 in was all the offense coach Rick Bowness’ team needed. Dallas played to its identity in a game that had almost double as many hits than shots on goal.
