Texas Stars fall in Stockton for third straight loss


The Stockton Heat proved to be too much to handle as they defeated the Texas Stars 5-1 in Stockton, Calif. on Wednesday.

Jon Gillies made 31 saves on 32 shots to get the win for Stockton and hand the Stars their third loss in a row.

The Heat (20-21-4-1) took a 3-0 lead after the first period and the Stars weren’t able to recover, only scoring late in the third period.

Austin Carroll put the Heat up 1-0 in less than two minutes with the help of Linden Vey and Oliver Kylington.

Morgan Klimchuk scored unassisted just over six minutes later. Vey put Stockton up three goals when he scored 12:26 into the opening frame.

Matt Frattin scored the only goal in the second period, assisted by Ryan Lomberg on a shorthanded play.

Andrew Mangiapane capped the scoring for the Heat with the help of Brandon Bollig 7:22 into the final period.

Cole Ully was the only member of the Stars to score as he made it 5-1 on assists from Matej Stransky and Justin Dowling.

Justin Peters was hit with the loss for Texas, allowing five goals while making 30 saves.

Neither team was able to cash in on power play opportunities. Stockton went 0 for 4 while the Stars couldn’t convert on six power play chances.

The Stars (24-23-1-2) will try to break the losing streak when they take on San Diego Friday at 9 p.m. Texas has four more road games before returning home to face Grand Rapids on March 4.
