Landon Bow earns first AHL shutout in Texas Stars win


Curtis McKenzie and Roope Hintz each scored two goals as the Texas Stars defeated the Manitoba Moose 4-0 in Winnipeg on Friday night.

Texas goaltender Landon Bow turned away all 27 shots he faced for his first American Hockey League shutout.

Hintz scored at 7:09 into the first period to put Texas on the scoreboard. Brent Regner and Andrew Bodnarchuk assisted on the play.

McKenzie doubled the lead just 1:10 later with assists from Austin Fyten and Bodnarchuk. McKenzie later assisted on the second goal by Hintz to make it 3-0 late in the second period.

McKenzie notched his team-leading 20th goal of the season on a power play early in the final frame. Travis Morin and Regner assisted on the play. It was Morin’s 34th assist of the season.

Texas (20-15-4-2) held the advantage the whole game as Manitoba (26-8-3-2) incurred 39 minutes of penalties. Texas just went 1-for-7 on the power play, but Manitoba went 0-for-3.

The Stars took 33 shots while the Manitoba managed 27.

McKenzie’s final goal accounted for his 200th point as a pro. Hintz now has 12 goals on the season.

The win halted a two-game losing streak for Texas. It also improved their record against the Central division of the Western conference to 11-2-0-0.
