Stockton Heat shut out Texas Stars


A day after scoring seven goals, the Texas Stars were shut out by the Stockton Heat 2-0 on Saturday in Stockton, Calif.

Heat goaltender Jon Gillies faced 28 shots and turned them all away as the Stars couldn’t score on a team that yielded many goals the night before.

Mike McKenna had a good night in net for Texas (20-15-4-1), stopping 22 of the 23 shots he faced. The offense was the problem Saturday.

Austin Carroll scored in just over six minutes from the start of the game to give Stockton the only goal it would need. Darren Nowick and Hunter Shinkaruk assisted on the play.

After a scoreless second frame, neither team scored until Spencer Foo added an empty-net goal to seal the win.

Texas managed just three shots in the first period. They made 25 more in the second and third, but they couldn’t score. Even with an advantage, the Stars were unable to get past the Heat’s defense. Texas went 0-for-4 on the power play.

Stockton (18-12-2-3) didn’t fare much better on the power play, going 0-for-3.

Texas drops to 1-2 on its current six-game road trip. The Stars have a trip to Ontario on Monday before playing two against Manitoba on Friday and Saturday.
