Richards ties it, 1-1

March, 20, 2010
Brad Richards just pounded a slap shot for a goal on a 5-on-3 to tie the score at 1-1 with 6:05 left in the first.

Richards' shot from the point beat goalie Pascal Leclaire through the five-hole.

The goal was set up by back-to-back penalties against defensemen Andy Sutton and Matt Carkner. Carkner smacked Mike Ribeiro in the face with a high stick.

The Stars have a 7-4 edge in shots but really haven't gotten much going today. In fact, they almost gave up a short-handed goal to start the first power play, but Lehtonen slid across his crease to make a great save.

By the way, credit for the first goal was shifted from Spezza to Fisher, meaning Fisher must have gotten the deflection on Spezza's shot from the point.
