LAST TIME OUT – TEXAS STARS
Landon Bow's 31 saves kept the Texas Stars in the game, and Jason Dickinson provided the heroics to beat the Chicago Wolves by a 2-1 final in overtime on Tuesday night at Allstate Arena. Texas was outshot by the Wolves, 19-3, in the first period alone, but Bow weathered the storm and gave the Stars the chance they needed, giving up only a power-play goal to Chicago's Brandon Pirri at 8:13 of the third. Curtis McKenzie assisted on Dickinson's goal to extend his point streak to five games
