Texas Earns Point in San Antonio Ahead of Holiday Break

Adam Mascherin's second period rebound goal would be the only one Texas could muster in a 2-1 overtime defeat at the hands of the San Antonio Rampage. The two teams faced off last night as well in Cedar Park with Texas earning two points. On the weekend, the loss gave Texas three of a possible four, but it was definitely less than ideal to give those extra points away to a divisional foe.

Landon Bow took the loss in the contest, stopping 26 of 28 shots against him. Texas was perfect on the PK (4/4) but so was San Antonio, stopping both power play contests in the relatively low penalty game.

The Stars scored first with Mascherin's 13th tally of the year coming on the assist from Justin Dowling and Brady Norrish, who was reinserted into the lineup tonight for John Nyberg. San Antonio marched back into the game with a late tally from Jordan Kyrou.

Texas survived a late power play by San Antonio in the final three minutes of the third to earn the overtime point. Late in the OT frame, Nolan Stevens collected his third of the year on a tap-in marker on the right side of the open net.

Up next, the Stars play San Antonio again on December 27th in Cedar Park.

Injuries, scratches, and notes:
Scarlett (season-ending ACL injury)
Nyberg, Point, Phelan (scratch)

Tonight’s attendance was 5,959.
