Hat trick by Denis Gurianov leads to Texas Stars win


Denis Gurianov recorded a hat trick as the Texas Stars bounced back to defeat the San Antonio Rampage 5-1 at the H-E-B Center at Cedar Park on Saturday.

With the game tied 1-1 to start the third period, the Stars scored four goals to run away with the win a day after falling to the in-state rival.

Each of Gurianov’s goals came in the final period.

Roope Hintz started the scoring for Texas midway through the first period on a power play. Justin Dowling and Greg Rallo assisted on the play.

Oskar Sunqvist tied the game late in the second period. It was the only goal Texas goaltender Philippe Desrosiers allowed on the night as he made 23 saves on 24 shots. Desrosiers was recalled by the Stars Saturday morning from the ECHL.

Gurianov scored his first just 44 seconds into the final frame. He added another almost seven minutes later. Tommy Thompson and Brian Flynn assisted on the goal.

Austin Fyten made it 4-1 at 12:20 into the period. Colin Markison and Thompson assisted on the play.

Gurianov completed the hat trick when he was assisted by Hintz and Flynn with less than five minutes in the game.

The Stars ended a four-game losing streak to the Rampage with the win. Texas currently sits in second place of the Pacific division of the American Hockey League.
