Stars come back to defeat Admirals

The Texas Stars fell behind by two goals but eventually came back to defeat the Milwaukee Admirals 5-2 in Milwaukee on Saturday night.

Brandon DeFazio scored twice and Ethan Werek assisted on two goals to lead the Stars (31-33-1-4) back to the win column after two straight losses.

Nick Ebert scored what turned out to be the winning goal at 6:08 into the final frame.

Justin Peters gave up two goals in the first period but went on to shut out the Admirals (40-23-3-3) the rest of the way. He made 27 saves on the night.

Pontus Aberg gave Milwaukee the lead just over five minutes into the game on a power play goal, assisted by Alexandre Carrier and Mike Ribeiro. It was Carrier’s 29th assist for the season.

Trevor Murphy doubled the lead when he scored with 6:01 left in the first frame.

It was over the midway point into the second period that the Stars started to get things going.

Denis Gurianov put Texas on the scoreboard when he scored his 10th goal of the year on a shorthanded play. That set a record for shorthanded goals for Texas at 14 on the season.

Not two minutes later, DeFazio scored to tie the game with the help of Werek and Mark McNeill.

The third period was owned by the Stars as they added three more goals to their total.

Travis Morin scored his 21st goal of the season with less than two minutes to play in regulation before DeFazio notched his 22nd goal. Both plays came against an empty net.

The Stars will take on the Admirals once more on Sunday at 3 p.m. in Milwaukee.
