Tyler Seguin Delivers Head Shot to Shea Theodore – Watch Now

The first-round Stanley Cup Playoff series between the Dallas Stars and Vegas Golden Knights intensified in Game 5, marked by a controversial hit from Tyler Seguin, penalty reviews, and a power-play goal by Jason Robertson that gave the Stars a lead.

The Dallas Stars and Vegas Golden Knights were already locked in a fierce first-round Stanley Cup Playoff series. Things heated up even more around the halfway mark of Game 5.

In a nail-biting second period, with the score tied at 2-2, Tyler Seguin of the Stars laid a massive hit on Golden Knights’ Shea Theodore. This sparked a bit of a scuffle between the teams.

At first, the refs thought Seguin’s hit was over the line, slapping him with a major penalty for targeting the head. But, after taking another look, they dialed it back to a minor. Game 5 was already intense, with the series knotted at 2-2. The teams had been trading blows, scoring two goals apiece in a frantic first period. The high stakes kept everyone on their toes as the second period unfolded.

Then, as the period was winding down, the refs had to make another tough call. This time, Golden Knights’ Alex Pietrangelo got caught elbowing Seguin at 15:19. Initially, it looked like a five-minute major was on the cards. But, after checking the replay, it turned out Seguin might’ve sold it a bit too well. The call? Downgraded to a two-minute minor.

Despite the controversy, the Stars didn’t miss their chance. On the ensuing power play, Jason Robertson found the net at 16:32. That crucial goal nudged Dallas ahead, giving them a slim lead as they headed into the intermission.
