Dallas has had a good start to their Traverse City tournament. Two games in, the Dallas Stars prospects have defeated Chicago and dropped an OT contest to Carolina. Today's game against Detroit at 6 PM Central will be the last 'regular season' game of the tournament. Tomorrow's game will be the playoff match against their opposite division same place finisher (1 plays 1, 2 plays 2, etc.)

The Chicago game was an exciting contest. Dallas managed to score three goals in the final 42 seconds to drop the Blackhawks prospects 4-2. Names that Texas fans will recognize or will soon know played big parts in the contest. Stephen Johns, Mattias Janmark, Cole Ully and Devin Shore all figured into the scoring in the last minute of the game. Philippe Desrosiers started in net.

The Stars led their game against Carolina on Saturday late. A tying goal by the Hurricanes and an early OT marker put the red and black over Dallas. Brent Moran started in net for Texas. Brett Pollock, who won't be joining the Texas Stars quite yet, added a pair of goals.

The Stars have a shot at the championship game if they can beat the host Red Wings this evening to take the Howe Division. The Blue Jackets are leading the Lindsay Division with a 2-0 record.
