Jake Oettinger earned a shutout in just his second playoff start for the Dallas Stars in a 2-0 win over the Calgary Flames on Thursday to even their playoff series at 1-1.

The 23-year-old Oettinger from Lakeville, Minn., stopped all 29 shots he faced in a sea of red at the sold-out Saddledome.

"The only thing that matters is wins. They have a great goalie on the other end and we know it's going to be tight, so the margin for error for me is very slim," Oettinger said.

Joe Pavelski scored and Michael Raffl added an empty-net goal for the Stars, who host the Flames in Saturday's Game 3 and Monday's Game 4 at American Airlines Center in the best-of-seven conference quarterfinal.

"Our goal was to go into Dallas and win two games anyway, so it doesn't really change our mindset," said Flames forward Tyler Toffoli.

Calgary opened the series with a 1-0 win Tuesday and the series continued to be a defensive battle in Game 2. Calgary's Jacob Markstrom stopped 21 of 22 shots in Thursday's loss.

Calgary (50-21-11) finished first in the Pacific Division, while Dallas (46-30-6) earned the top wild-card seed in the Western Conference.
