Texas Stars take down Chicago Wolves for fourth straight win


Nick Ebert scored on a power play with less than a minute to go in overtime as the Texas Stars defeated the Chicago Wolves 4-3 at the H-E-B Center at Cedar Park for their fourth straight win on Friday.

The winning streak is the Stars’ longest since winning four straight in early November.

Chicago’s Ty Loney forced the overtime period when he scored with less than a minute to play in regulation.

Texas (24-20-1-2) held the lead three times in regulation but the Wolves tied the game every time.

Mike McMurtry scored to put the Stars up 1-0 nearly seven minutes into the first period. He was assisted by Dustin Stevenson and Justine Hache.

Morgan Ellis tied the game with the help of Reid McNeill and Brett Sterling.

Texas took the lead again when Brandon DeFazio made it 2-1 with 6:30 left to play in the first frame.

The Wolves (29-17-4-3) made it 2-2 when Samuel Blais scored early in the middle period unassisted.

Neither team could break the tie until the final period when Travis Morin gave the Stars a 3-2 lead with just enough time left for Chicago to tie the game once again.

Justin Peters earned the win for Texas, stopping 18 out of 21 shots in net.

Jordan Binnington was hit with the loss even though he stopped 25 shots.

After Steve McParland incurred a double minor penalty for high sticking the Stars were able to cash in with just 26 seconds left on the clock before having to go to a shootout.
