Texas claimed an early lead that they never relinquished this afternoon in San Jose as they triumphed over the Barracuda by a 3-2 final mark. While Devin Shore's scoring streak ended at six games, his assist on the game-winning goal extended his point streak to seven games.

Curtis McKenzie scored off a lucky deflection off the skate of San Jose goalie Troy Grosenick just 45 seconds into the contest. San Jose would score off the stick of former Rampage forward Scott Timmins to knot things up at one at the exact midpoint of the game.

The Stars potted two tallies just 15 seconds apart to put the game away in the second. Radek Faksa created a turnover and finished it off with a breakaway goal at 13:16 of the second. Brendan Ranford would tap in a loose puck for the 3-1 lead at 13:31.

San Jose added another just two minutes later but John Muse shut the door in the third for his fifth win of the season.

The Stars return home for a game against the Rockford IceHogs on Wednesday before hitting the road again.
