Monsters take down Stars in shootout


Alex Broadhurst scored in the shootout to lift the Cleveland Monsters to a 2-1 win over the Texas Stars in an American Hockey League contest at the H-E-B Center at Cedar Park on Saturday night.

Broadhurst’s fourth-round goal proved to be the winner as he beat the Stars’ Maxime Lagace.

Caleb Herbert provided all of the offense for the Stars (16-13-1-2), scoring in regulation and their only goal in the shootout, but it wasn’t enough.

Anton Forsberg made 38 saves on 39 shots to pick up the win for the defending Calder Cup champions, avenging Friday’s loss to Texas.

Lagace made 27 saves on 29 shots for the Stars.

The Stars took a 1-0 lead on Herbert’s backhand goal early in the first period. That made five points in the last six games for Herbert. Ethan Werek assisted on the play.

Cleveland (17-13-1-2) got back in the game when Nick Moutrey scored midway through the middle period to tie the game. It was his fifth goal of the season.

The goaltenders dominated the rest of regulation and overtime.

Lagace saved a third-period penalty shot by Sonny Milano and made four saves in overtime.

Forsberg stopped shots by Brendan Ranford, Brandon DeFazio and Travis Morin in the shootout.

Jordan Maletta converted a shot to tie the shootout before Broadhurst made the game winning shot.

The Stars next go on the road for three games, beginning with a matchup against the Ontario Reign on Wednesday at 9 p.m.
