Cleveland Monsters score six straight to drop Stars


Despite holding a three-goal lead after the first period, the Texas Stars eventually fell to the Cleveland Monsters 6-3 in Cleveland on Saturday night.

The Monsters (28-27-3-4) scored four goals in the final period, six in a row overall, to complete the comeback and seal the win.

Sonny Milano scored twice and had an assist while Jordan Maletta scored and assisted on a goal to bring Cleveland back from defeat.

Anton Forsberg got the improbable win, stopping just 19 shots out of 22 attempts.

Matej Stransky put the Stars (28-30-1-4) up 1-0 less than five minutes into the game.

Brandon DeFazio scored a power play goal just over seven minutes later to double the lead. Caleb Herbert put the Stars up 3-0 later in the period.

The comeback started in the second period on a power play goal by Marc-Andre Bergeron. Milano assisted on the play and then scored to make it 3-2 less than seven minutes later.

Maletta tied the game 7:28 into the final period before Ryan Craig scored the winning goal with less than five minutes left to play.

Justin Peters was hit with the surprising loss, allowing four goals and making 34 saves. He had a career-high shutout streak end at 161:17.

The Monsters scored two empty-net goals with less than two minutes to play. Milano’s second goal was assisted by Maletta and Zac Dalpe capped the scoring.

Cleveland had 40 shots on the night, nearly doubling the Stars’ output. Texas was 1 for 3 on the power play while Cleveland was 1 for 2 with the advantage.

Five of Texas’ 11 commitments for the 2018 class play defense. Byron Hobbs and Ayodele Adeoye are linebackers while B.J. Foster, Caden Sterns and DeMarvion Overshown highlight the safety position. The Longhorns are expected to sign around 20 to 22 players, depending on continued attrition. That means Texas is halfway done. The five defensive...
