CEDAR PARK, Texas – The Texas Stars, American Hockey League affiliate of the NHL’s Dallas Stars, were defeated 2-1 by the San Jose Barracuda on Friday night at the H-E-B Center at Cedar Park.


After a scoreless opening period that saw Texas outshoot San Jose 18-5, the Barracuda scored the game’s first two goals 42 seconds apart at 12:10 and 12:52 of the middle period. Oskar Lindblom struck first for San Jose by tapping in a no-look pass from Tristen Robins to beat Remi Poirier near the top of the crease. Jordy Bellerive then made it 2-0 Barracuda by blasting a one-timer from the top of the left circle that fed out from the nearside dasher by Ozzy Weisblatt.


The third period saw Mavrik Bourque chip in a loose puck amid a net-front scramble to cut the Stars’ deficit to 2-1 with 12.9 remaining on the clock. However, the Barracuda hung on in the waning seconds for a 2-1 victory in Cedar Park.


Earning the win in goal, Romanov made 41 saves on 42 shots to improve to 7-8-6 on the campaign. For the Stars, Poirier came down with the loss to fall to 14-12-3 after making 29 stops on 31 shots.
