Stars Pick Up a 4-3 Win in the DesertMar 10, 2018
TUCSON, Ariz. - Landon Bow weathered a first-period storm and the Texas Stars offense took off with three goals in the second for a 4-3 win over the Tucson Roadrunners on Saturday night at the Tucson Convention Center.
Bow stopped 10 of 11 shots in the first-period, including multiple point-blank chances to hold the Tucson offense to only a goal. The Texas rookie finished 24 of 27 in net for his 17th win of the season. Justin Dowling and Roope Hintz both scored in the first 42 seconds of period two to push Texas (32-21-6-3) in front after Bow's heroics in the first and that opened the door for the Stars to steal the win on the road.
