Less than 24 hours after a 5-2 win, the Stars fell to the same Milwaukee Admirals by a 7-2 score to end their season series against the club. Yesterday, Milwaukee opened the scoring with a pair and then Texas rattled off five unanswered for the win. The script was flipped entirely today as Texas notched a pair early off the sticks of Mark McNeill and Matej Stransky then gave up seven.
Vladislav Kamenev, Pontus Aberg and Justin Florek all had a pair of goals for the Ads. Aberg and Kamenev had three point nights, each adding an assist on Kirkland's goal. Alexandre Carrier had three assists as well.
Maxime Lagace got the start for the Stars, his first since February 24th. Texas finished their only 3-in-3 of the year with two losses, bringing their record for the season to 31-34-1-4.
Texas is on the brink of playoff elimination this week and could see their hopes dashed on Wednesday against Bakersfield.
