Texas Stars win in overtime on the road


The Texas Stars avoided losing two games in a row as they defeated Chicago 2-1 in overtime on Tuesday night on the road.

Jason Dickinson scored his eighth goal of the season to lift Texas to the win just 21 seconds into the overtime period. He was assisted by Brent Regner and Curtis McKenzie on the play.

Landon Bow earned the win for Texas (9-8-0-1), stopping 31 of 32 shots.

Kasimir Kaskisuo took the loss between the pipes for Chicago (4-10-1-1) as he saved 18 of the 20 shots he faced.

After a scoreless first period, Texas got on the board first when Matt Mangene scored on an assist by Max French at 14:25 into the middle frame. It was Mangene’s fifth goal of the year.

The score remained 1-0 until Brandon Pirri tied it up at 8:13 into the third period on a power play with the help of Jason Garrison and Teemu Pulkkinen.

The Wolves went 1-for-4 on power plays while the Stars were unable to cash in on its two opportunities.

Chicago outshot Texas 32-20, but Bow was up to the task of handing the Wolves a third loss in three tries against the Stars this season.

Texas next travels to Cleveland to take on the Monsters at noon on Friday. Tuesday’s game was the second of a seven-game road trip for the Stars.
