Texas Stars drop fourth straight game


The Texas Stars lost their fourth game in a row as they fell to the Bakersfield Condors 4-2 on Saturday night at the H-E-B Center at Cedar Park.

The loss was the third straight to the Condors. In the last two games against Bakersfield the Stars have been outscored 10-5.

Josh Currie’s goal nearly midway through the second period turned out to be the winning score for the Condors. Nick Ellis made 44 saves on 46 shots to get the win.

Bakersfield (17-16-4-1) scored twice in the first period to take control of the game. Scott Allen broke through 13 minutes into the first period on a power play goal. Just 30 seconds later Jere Sallinen doubled the lead with a goal assisted by Jesse Puljujarvi.

The Stars (21-19-1-2) fought back with a power play goal by Denis Gurianov with less than three minutes left in the opening frame. Mattias Backman and Ethan Werek assisted on the play.

After Currie made it 3-1, Brandon DeFazio cut the lead back to one goal on a power play with less than five minutes left in the second period. Travis Morin and Matt Mangene helped on the play.

Ryan Hamilton, who scored twice against Texas on Friday, provided some insurance for the Condors when he scored less than two minutes after DeFazio.

Landon Bow had another rough night, making just 13 saves on 17 shots.

The Stars held the edge on power play opportunities, going 2-of-7 with the advantage. Bakersfield was 1-of-3.
