Dallas Stars 'Not Confident' In Veteran Forward's Availability For Game Two

The Dallas Stars just played a tough double overtime game in their series opening matchup against the Minnesota Wild, and after falling on the back of a Ryan Hartman winner, they'll need to bounce back in a big way in Game Two. 

One of the biggest talking points coming out of this game is the Matt Dumba hit on Joe Pavelski, and after how Pavelski looked trying to get up off the ice, it's no surprise that the team are not confident in his availability ahead of Game Two.

Given Dumba's actions, this has added another layer of animosity to an already heated rivalry, and if Pavelski does miss Game Two, they'll be extra motivated to bounce back and level the series against a tough Wild squad.
