Last night's game should be quickly forgotten by all involved on the Texas side of things. Head coach Derek Laxdal called out the Stars' compete level repeatedly, noting that he didn't feel the team showed up until the third period.

That much was evident to anyone in the building. With eight shots through two periods and a record-tying all-time low of 18 shots in the game total, it wasn't a strong 'compete' night.

The loss dropped the Stars into 3rd place in the Pacific. A loss tonight combined with wins by Stockton, Ontario and San Antonio could drop them all the way to 6th place. Such is life in the tightly packed Pacific, where even the last place team has a .500 record.

The puck drops at 7:00 PM CST.
