The Stars got back on their heels early in tonight's contest and never recovered, falling 5-1 to the visiting Wild. Justin Peters allowed two goals on the first three shots of the game. He was pulled in favor of Maxime Lagace but took the loss anyways as the Stars couldn't muster more than a single goal to fight back.

Texas had a decent chance at the comeback as the third period began, but the Iowa Wild capitalized with two goals in just 85 seconds to start the period. With the score at 4-1, a final goal from Alex Tuch, his second of the night, sealed the deal at 5-1 just four minutes later.

Maxime Lagace stopped 15 of 18 in relief. The Stars only goal came from Ethan Werek, who has a habit of scoring the Stars' only goal in games where they only score

Injuries, scratches, and notes:
Elie (call up)
Herbert, Bystrom, McMurtry, Hache (scratch)

Tonight's attendance was 4,560.

  1. Am I the only one who thought Stalock took a soccer quality dive in the second?
