The Texas Stars had the Moose in their crosshairs from the drop of the puck today in Winnipeg.
After a 1-0 first period on a goal by Matt Mangene, Texas mounted a four-goal second period. Brandon DeFazio scored the fastest goal to start a period in franchise history with his 8th of the season just 11 seconds into the frame. Denis Gurianov scored 28 seconds later to make it 3-0. With Austin Fyten's goal at 4:25, Eric Comrie saw his night come to an end.
Ondrej Pavelec would be pierced twice more with Mike McMurtry and Jason Dickinson each collecting their fourth goal of the year. With the score at 6-0, Texas just missed the clean sheet for Maxime Lagace. With 57 seconds left, Julian Melchiori scored a meaningless goal to break up the shutout.
Regardless, the Stars were 2/8 on the power play and perfect on the PK in five chances.
