Peters scores first shutout for Texas Stars in win over Monsters


Justin Peters made 24 saves in his first shutout for Texas as the Stars defeated the Cleveland Monsters 4-0 in Cleveland on Friday night.

More than ten thousand fans were on hand at the Quicken Loans Arena to witness a couple of milestones for the visiting team.

In addition to Peters’ first shutout for Texas (28-29-1-4), Gavin Bayreuther scored in his first career game and Justin Dowling scored a goal to rise to fourth in team history.

The win halted a four-game winless streak for Texas, including two straight shootout losses.

After a scoreless first period, Texas cashed in twice in the middle frame. Caleb Herbert scored midway through the period to give Texas the lead and Dowling followed up with his 71st goal as a Star over five minutes later. The goal moved him ahead of Matt Fraser in the team’s all-time goal scorers.

Austin Fyten made it 3-0 a little over midway through the third period with the help of Cole Ully’s second assist of the game.

The rookie Bayreuther cashed in on a power play less than five minutes later, assisted by Travis Morin and Julius Honka. It was Honka’s second assist of the game.

The Stars were 1 for 4 on the power play while Cleveland (27-27-3-4) went 0 for 3.

Anton Forsberg took the loss for Cleveland, stopping 27 of the 31 shots he faced.

Texas outshot Cleveland 31-24.

The Stars and Monsters will finish off their season series on Saturday as they face each other at 6 p.m. in Cleveland.
