Texas Stars Fall Behind Early (Again), Can't Recover (Again)

It's become an all-too-common theme for the Texas Stars this season to fall behind early and make life hard on themselves in the latter half of the game. It's especially frustrating when it comes in a game where the Stars outshot the opponent 39-17. While the final score of 3-2 may show a close game, Texas had to fight back to get there and never held a lead in the game.

Also contributing was the Iowa power play. The Stars limited the penalties but were still stung when they did get called, stopped just one of three Wild PPs.

Justin Peters stopped just 14 of 17 shots against.

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

Tonight's attendance was 5,604.

Gemel Smith left the game with a check to the head in the third.
