Texas Stars start road trip with a win over Ontario


Remi Elie scored an empty net goal with less than a minute left in regulation to seal a 3-1 win for the Texas Stars over the Ontario Reign in an American Hockey League contest on Wednesday night.

The win is just the Stars’ second in six games, but it starts a four-game road trip on a positive note.

Texas completes the season series with the Reign having won three of four games. Wednesday’s win was the Stars’ first over Ontario on the road in franchise history. It was also just the fourth loss for the Reign in 15 games.

Maxime Lagace earned his 11th win for the Stars (17-13-1-2) as he stopped 21 of 22 shots. Former Texas Stars goaltender Jack Campbell was hit with the loss as he made 20 saves on 22 shots.

Adrien Kempe opened up the scoring when he beat Lagace at 7:48 into the first period on a power play. He was assisted by Vincent LoVerde and Zach Leslie.

Brendan Ranford tied the game with five and a half minutes left in the second period, assisted by Gemel Smith and Patrik Nemeth.

The Stars took a 2-1 lead early in the third period when Matej Stransky scored the game winner with the help of Smith and Ranford. Smith finished with two assists while Ranford had a goal and an assist.

The Reign (17-7-6-0) went 1-for-5 on the power play as the Stars went 1-for-3.

Texas next faces the Tucson Roadrunners Friday at 8:05 p.m.
