Stars fall short in Chicago


Kenny Agostino scored a power play goal with just over five minutes left to play to propel the Chicago Wolves to a 4-3 win over the Texas Stars in Chicago on Wednesday night.

Agostino’s goal topped off a three-point night for the forward. He assisted on two other goals.

Jason Dickinson had a goal and an assist in the losing effort.

Dickinson scored in the first minute of the game, converting on assists from Justin Dowling and Andrew Bodnarchuk.

Despite grabbing the early lead, the Stars couldn’t hold on as the Wolves (9-9-1-1) scored three straight goals.

Brett Sterling scored unassisted to tie the game 14:14 into the first period before Brad Hunt’s power play goal less than three minutes later gave Chicago the lead.

Landon Ferraro made it 3-1 with just over three minutes left in the first period to take control of the game.

The Stars (10-7-1-1) fought back, however, scoring two unanswered goals until the final period.

Matej Stranksy pulled the Stars to within a goal when he scored late in the first period to give Texas life.

Denis Gurianov tied the game in the second period to make it a game again.

Maxime Lagace made 20 saves on 24 shots in the losing effort. Jordan Binnington made 21 saves on 24 shots.

Texas failed to score on a power play, going 0-for-3. Chicago cashed in twice on five chances.

The Stars will next travel to Canada to face the Manitoba Moose on Saturday at 2 p.m.

Spend any time around the Texas basketball team, and it becomes obvious this doesn’t seem like a group that’s given up despite five straight losses.
