Texas Stars end road trip with a win over Manitoba


The Texas Stars made it two wins in two nights over the Manitoba Moose with a 5-1 win on Saturday in Winnipeg.

Jason Dickinson scored two goals while Austin Fyten and Brent Regner each recorded two assists on the night.

A day after Landon Bow earned his first American Hockey League shutout, teammate Mike McKenna held the Moose to just one goal. McKenna saved 38 out of 39 shots to earn the win for Texas.

Dickinson gave the Stars (22-15-4-2) a 1-0 lead just 17 seconds into the contest. Curtis McKenzie and Fyten assisted on the play.

Colin Markison doubled the lead almost eight minutes later, assisted by Travis Morin and Shane Hanna.

Manitoba (26-10-3-2) attempted to get back in the game with a goal near the end of the first period. Tucker Poolman scored his first of the season to pull the Moose to within a goal.

After a scoreless middle frame, McKenzie got on the scoreboard with his 12th goal of the season. He was assisted on the power play by Regner and Brian Flynn. Texas went 1-for-3 on the power play in the contest.

Greg Rallo added another goal for Texas before Dickinson ended the game just how he started. Dickinson scored his 16th goal of the year shorthanded and on an empty net.

The Stars ended their six-game road trip with three wins and three losses. One loss came in overtime while a second was the result of a shootout.

Texas next hosts San Jose on Tuesday at 7:30 p.m.
