Wolves Blows Out Texas 6-1 in Chicago Day Game

Right from the drop of the puck, today's game was in the hands of the Wolves. In the first six minutes, Chicago delighted the home crowd with three straight goals. The second and third came just nine seconds apart and truly set Texas on its heels. The final, almost predestined score, was 6-1.

Texas and Chicago both feature some of the top scorers in the league, and those players were on display today. Brandon Pirri extended his AHL scoring lead with three points. Daniel Carr notched a power play goal and even-strength assist, and Texas's Erik Condra had a deft setup on the Stars first period power play goal. Former Star Curtis McKenzie had a pair of assists to his name.

Being completely honest, the game lacked highlights for Texas in a big way. The score was indeed indicative of the play, which isn't always the case. The Stars did not seem to have their game with them as they got started. Landon Bow came out after the first three goals to attempt a kickstart or reset. Bow came back in after just 77 seconds but then was pulled for good after Chicago scored two more in the second frame.

Desrosiers would let up one more in the final frame to set the final at 6-1. The Stars will play again on Friday at home against San Antonio.
