Texas Stars’ rally falls short against Iowa


The Texas Stars had 22 more shots than the Iowa Wild but fell 3-2 at the H-E-B Center at Cedar Park on Friday night.

After falling down 3-0, the Stars scored twice in the final period but couldn’t complete the comeback.

Mike Reilly and Pat Cannone each assisted on two goals and Alex Stalock saved 37 shots in the win. Stalock saved 26 shots before the Stars got on the scoreboard.

Alex Tuch, who scored twice in Friday’s win over Texas, notched another goal to start things off for the Wild. His goal came 3:54 into the first period on a power play.

After former Star Maxime Fortunus made it 2-0 early in the middle frame, Zack Mitchell scored the game-winner at 7:56 into the second period.

The Stars (27-29-1-2) got back in the game early in the third period on a goal by Matej Stransky, his 19th on the year. He scored less than two minutes into the period.

Stransky assisted on the next goal as Brandon DeFazio scored at 9:11 into the period. The goal was DeFazio’s 100th in the American Hockey League and came on a power play. It was also his 200th point.

Julius Honka assisted on both goals by Texas. He has 22 on the year.

Justin Peters had a tough night in net for Texas as he saved 14 shots on 17 attempts.

The Wild (29-13-6-2) cashed in on 2 out of 3 power plays while the Stars scored once in six attempts.

The Stars get back in action when they host the San Antonio Rampage on Monday at 7:30 p.m.
