Denis Gurianov talled a goal and two assists while Mike McKenna followed up last night's shutout with another strong performance to cap a 6-3 Texas Stars win. The Stars had goals 4 different ways with a power play marker by Brian Flynn, a shorty from Sheldon Dries, an empty netter from Tommy Thompson and even-strength goals from Greg Rallo, Gavin Bayreuther and Gurianov.

The Stars earned the win on the back of a three-goal second period. Coming into the second down 2-1, the Stars emerged up 4-2, getting it started with Flynn scoring on a penalty to Kurtis Gabriel.

Texas was perfect on the penalty kill, stopping all six chances by the Wild. That included a 4-minute minor to Austin Fyten for high-sticking in the second and 5-on-3 that lasted 117 seconds.

Mike McKenna stopped 22 of 25 shots against to earn his second win of the weekend.

Injuries, scratches, and notes:
