Texas Stars fall for second straight game by one goal


The Texas Stars opened their three-game homestand with a second straight loss by one goal as they fell to the Manitoba Moose 2-1 at the H-E-B Center at Cedar park on Tuesday night.

The Moose (17-19-3-2) converted two power plays to get the win. Dan DeSalvo cashed in on both power plays to lead Manitoba.

Travis Morin scored the only goal for the Stars (20-17-1-2), assisted by Matej Stransky and Brendan Ranford. Earlier in the day Stransky was added to the Pacific Division roster of the American Hockey League All-Star Classic. He’s played in 39 games and has 28 points, 15 goals and 13 assists.

Eric Comrie had a great performance in net for the Moose, stopping 27 of the 28 shots he faced on the night.

Landon Bow took the loss, stopping 23-of-25 shots.

DeSalvo gave Manitoba a 1-0 lead with less than five minutes to play in the first period as he scored on a power play assisted by Kyle Conner and former Texas Star Scott Glennie. Glennie played for the Stars for five seasons before missing all of last year with an injury.

DeSalvo doubled the lead for the Moose 4:18 into the middle period on another power play assisted by Glennie and Jack Roslovic.

Morin’s goal came with a over 13 minutes to play in the final period, but the Stars were unable to cash in later in the period. The goal was Morin’s 150th in the AHL.

The Stars went 0-for-4 on power plays while the Moose went 2-for-6 with the advantage.
