Tyler Seguin scored two power play goals and Jake Oettinger made 33 saves in a scintillating home state show to help the Dallas Stars bounce back from a lopsided loss and beat the Minnesota Wild 3-2 in Game 4 on Sunday by the night to even their NHL first-round playoff series.

Evgenii Dadonov gave the Stars a two-score lead early in the third period just 8 seconds after escaping the penalty area, his third goal of the series. John Klingberg scored for the Wild less than three minutes later against his former team just off a goal-line block at the other end.

Seguin’s two goals followed questionable penalties on Minnesota’s energetic right wing Marcus Foligno, who was penalized for stumbling with 4:49 remaining before Seguin scored his third goal of the series.

Frederick Gaudreau gave the Wild another chance with his power play goal with 1:20 left, but Oettinger didn’t budge. He capped another golden playoff performance by getting a glove on Marcus Johansson’s short-range slap shot from the right circle with 12 seconds left as the Wild bench quivered in disappointment.

The Central Division foes will move on for Game 5 in Dallas on Tuesday night.

BRUINS PUSH PANTHERS TO THE EDGE WITH GAME 4 VICTORY

The Wild again played without center Joel Eriksson Ek, their third leading scorer and true two-way player, with a lower-body injury that has limited him to just one at-bat in the series. He sure could have used his stick and his strength around the goal to score a rebound against Oettinger, the unflappable young goalie who grew up in Lakeville, a half-hour’s drive from downtown St. Paul.

The Wild created many excellent chances with their attack, but their passing game was a bit off. Foligno was denied twice on a breakaway, the rebound attempt deflected off Oettinger’s pad. Wild star Kirill Kaprizov, who scored in Game 1 but has been hounded and pummeled by the stars of every series, also had a breakaway shot that Oettinger deflected.

Oettinger, 24, made a name for himself in the postseason a year ago with a 64-save effort in a Game 7 overtime loss to Calgary.

Foligno was whistled for interference behind his own net late in the second half, a call that had the crowd and Wild’s bench howling. The Stars took advantage of their opportunity, when Seguin hit a puck that was sliding slowly between Filip Gustavsson’s pads after an opening shot by Roope Hintz with Jared Spurgeon trying to get it out.
