Finishing off the three in three, Texas heads to San Antonio this afternoon. The team has had some attrition thanks to the rough schedule. Jesse Blacker was injured last night and Devin Shore on Friday. Branden Troock has been out for a few games now as well. The Stars are set on defense but they are right at capacity on forwards. Cory Kane figured into the lineup last night for the first time in a week.

San Antonio is actually coming into today's game on a four game losing skid. They've been consistent, scoring two goals in each one of those losses. However, their opponents scored a total of 15 across the games. Given that Texas and San Antonio are geographic island mates, those losses have all been against the same teams Texas has played recently: Rockford, Charlotte and Stockton.
