Texas Stars top Roadrunners in overtime


Matej Stransky scored his 21st goal of the season to lift the Texas Stars to a 4-3 win over the Tucson Roadrunners in overtime at the H-E-B Center on Wednesday night.

The Stars (29-30-1-4) led 3-1 in the third period, but the Roadrunners (24-27-7-0) scored two goals to force an extra period.

Justin Peters made 26 saves on 29 shots to hold on for the win.

It didn’t take long for the Stars to take a lead, scoring two goals in the first three minutes of the game.

Ethan Werek made it 1-0 with assists from Dillon Heatherington and Brandon DeFazio. DeFazio assisted on two goals in the game as did Travis Morin.

Julius Honka doubled the lead for Texas when he scored on a power play less than a minute later.

Tyler Gaudet scored a goal to make it 2-1 at 7:09 into the first period.

Denis Gurianov, who assisted on Honka’s goal, made it 3-1 with less than 16 minutes to go in the game.

Joe Whitney cut the lead to one goal when he scored witht he help of Dysin Mayo’s second assist with more than seven minutes left in regulation. David Musil also assisted on two goals for the Roadrunners.

With less than two minutes to play in regulation, Laurent Dauphin tied the game with an extra attacker on the ice.

Adin Hill nearly picked up a win despite falling behind early in net. He stopped 34 shots on 38 attempts, but he couldn’t stop Stransky’s fifth game-winner of the season.

The Stars next take on the Stockton Heat on Friday at 7:30 p.m. at the H-E-B Center at Cedar Park.
