Stars' Lone Goal Comes on Penalty Shot as Rockford Wins 3-1

Caleb Herbert's penalty shot was the only Stars goal in tonight's 3-1 Texas loss to Rockford. The goal, coming at 8:17 of the first period, was Texas's first successful penalty shot of the season. The other two attempts came from Herbert and Remi Elie. Tonight's attempt was courtesy of Rule 61.6, slashing.

The lead was shortlived as the Stars gave up a power play goal to tie things early in the second. Brandon Mashinter's 14th of the year broke up an 0-for-18 streak for the IceHogs on the man advantage. Matheson Iacopelli scored halfway through the third to send the score to 2-1 and Jake Dowell's empty netter sealed the deal.

Dowell's empty net goal was also a shorthanded goal, meaning that each type of goal that is possible in hockey (even strength, power play, shorthanded, penalty shot, empty net) was scored in the game.

Justin Peters stopped 33 of 35. Texas hits the road for two in Milwaukee starting tomorrow.

Injuries, scratches, and notes:
Elie, Dickinson, Honka, Smith, Dowling (call up)
Fyten (injury)

Tonight's attendance was 5,216.
