Jason Dickinson Jumps Into Lineup, Sparks Texas to OT Victory

There was another game on at the same time as this one, so this is a limited report.

Jason Dickinson made the most of his first game of the season, notching the overtime winner in the desert to give Texas a 4-3 win over the Tucson Roadrunners in the first game between the two teams. Dickinson, who had missed training camp and the start of the season recovering from offseason surgery, tallied off the assist of Remi Elie just under four minutes into overtime.

The game was a seesaw battle that had 3 lead changes. Tucson scored first but Texas charged back with two goals in 12 seconds from Matej Stransky and Ethan Werek. The Roadrunners answered with two vet goals from Jamie McBain and Chris Mueller. Rookie Mike McMurtry scored his first professional goal to end the second. A scoreless third sent things to OT.

The Stars started Philippe Desrosiers in net, who stopped 19 of 22 shots against.

Smith (call up)
Karjalainen, Van Brabant, Troock, Herbert (scratch)
Ranford (out, unspecified)
