Hours later, Vegas avoided losing a 3-1 series lead for the second straight series by beating Vancouver 3-0.

Joel Kiviranta, because regular forward Andrew Cogliano was deemed unfit to play, scored the winning goal at 7:24 in overtime to keep the Stars the seventh player in NHL history and the first rookie. score a hat trick in Game 7.

He was ejected from the Game 7 victory by shooting.
