For the second straight game the Texas Stars defeated the Chicago Wolves 6-5 at the H-E-B Center at Cedar Park.

Shea Theodore got the scoring started for Chicago just 4:23 into the first period. He scored again a period later.

Gavin Bayreuther tied the game in the first as he scored his first goal of the season with less than six minutes left in the period. He finished with three points, assisting on two goals for the Stars.

Dickinson scored his first goal early in the second period to put Texas up for the first time in the game.

Travis Morin and Mark McNeill each scored for Texas in the middle frame to put the Stars up 4-2 heading into the final period.

Once again the Wolves made things interesting in the third period as they scored three straight goals to take a 5-4 lead.

Matt Mangene saved the Stars from suffering a disheartening loss by tying the game up with less than four minutes to play.

Mike McKenna made two big saves in overtime during a penalty to help Texas stay alive. McKenna finished the game with 35 saves on 40 shots. On the other side of the ice, Oscar Dansk made 30 saves on 36 shots.
