Texas Stars fall to Tucson in overtime


Mike Sislo scored 2 minutes and 10 seconds into the overtime period to lift the Tucson Roadrunners to a 2-1 win over the Texas Stars in Tucson on Friday night.

With the game tied 1-1 heading to the third frame, neither team could move ahead in the final period of regulation.

Landon Bow made 25 saves on the night but came away with the loss for Texas.

Hunter Miska was tested far fewer times, having to make just 15 saves on the way to the win.

Tucson (31-17-4-1) took the lead in the second period on a power-play goal by Carter Camper. Sislo assisted on the goal at 6:09 into the period. It was Camper’s 14th goal of the season.

Texas (31-21-6-3) tied the game on a goal by Samuel Laberge at 14:14 into the period. It was Laberge’s sixth score of the year. He was assisted by Dillon Heatherington and Matt Mangene.

The loss prevented the Stars from having a three-game winning streak for the first time since Jan. 23.

The Stars will try to bounce back as they face the Roadrunners again on Saturday at 8:05 p.m. in Tucson.

Following their contest with Tucson, they’ll return home for a four-game stretch that starts Wednesday when they host Manitoba.
