UPDATE: Landon Bow has been assigned to Idaho.

So... it's been a busy week. Let's review.

Since the last time Texas played, it has lost the following players: Brandon Ranford, Branden Troock, and Brandon Anselmini. It has gained Justin Hache, Justin Peters, and Mike McMurtry.

The newly retooled Stars will hit the road, literally, to drive down to San Antonio and debuted their new look. It couldn't come at a better time as the Stars are in a precarious spot. The weekend set against the Rampage could see them drop to last place in the division if they are unable to collect any points.

In fact, the Stars are in need of many Ws down the stretch to keep their playoff hopes alive. The current playoff line is a .592 points percentage, meaning Texas must reach 90 points in their remaining 34 games. It's a clip that means they'll have to go a blistering 23-10-1 over the final stretch to be in the conversation.

It all starts with two points tonight.
