Texas Stars shut out for second time this season


Ville Husso made 27 saves as the San Antonio Rampage shut out the Texas Stars 1-0 in an overtime contest at the AT&T Center on Friday night.

Stars goaltender Mike McKenna made 27 saves as well, but his lone goal allowed came in the overtime period off the stick of Dominic Toninato. Rocco Grimaldi and Chris Butler assisted on the play.

It was the first time since Nov. 4 that the Stars were held scoreless. They fell to Stockton 1-0 on the road in that match. They’ve been shut out twice this season.

The loss for Texas was the third straight to its I-35 rivals. It was the second game in a row that the Stars fell in overtime to the Rampage. They lost 5-4 on Wednesday at the H-E-B Center at Cedar Park.

After three scoreless periods, Toninato needed just 1:12 to score the game winner.

The Stars had opportunities but couldn’t convert. They had two power plays but went 0-for-2 on the night.

McKenna and the defense did a good job of keeping Texas in the game, killing off three penalties throughout the contest.

The loss dropped the Stars to 18-11-3-1 as their road record moved to 8-8-2-0. The Rampage improved to 18-12-2-0.

Texas next hosts San Diego for two games in a row, the first being played Saturday at 7 p.m.
