Dallas will try to back up his solid play with some offense Thursday night.

"There just seems like there were a lot of penalties. You know, they were calling stuff tight. So, you know, there's going to be power plays and penalty kills.  And, you know, I thought we did a good job on the P.K. And uhm, our power plays gonna get their looks and they're going to find themselves again and so we just gotta continue to do well on special teams," Ottinger said. "I've been to playoff games as a fan and, you know, the intensity. But when you're between the pipes its a whole different ballgame. And it's a dream come true to be a starting goalie in the playoffs here. I'm gonna just try to give me team a chance to win."

The puck drops at 9 p.m. Thursday in Calgary.

The series moves to Dallas for Game 3 on Saturday.

Game 4 is also in Dallas Monday night.
