Stars win in shootout to halt losing streak


It took overtime and a shootout, but the Texas Stars were able to halt a six-game losing streak as they defeated the San Jose Barracuda 2-1 in San Jose on Wednesday night.

Ethan Werek accounted for the winning goal as was the only shooter to score in the shootout. He also initially gave the Stars (25-26-1-2) a 1-0 lead in the second period before the Barracuda tied the game.

Justin Peters made 42 saves while facing 43 shots to lead the Stars in net. He turned away all four shots he faced in the shootout.

Despite making 37 saves, Troy Grosenick took the loss for San Jose (33-11-1-4) as Werek was able to get the goal past him twice on the night.

The win comes at the end of a six-game west coast trip for the Stars, who will return to the H-E-B Center on Saturday to face Grand Rapids at 7 p.m.

Werek scored his seventh goal of the season nearly midway through the second period with assists from Julius Honka and Brandon DeFazio.

Ryan Carpenter tied the game in the third period, assisted by Tim Heed and Barclay Goodrow.

Neither team was able to convert on the power play. The Stars went 0 for 3 while San Jose came up empty on both of its opportunities.
