CEDAR PARK, Texas – The Texas Stars, American Hockey League affiliate of the NHL’s Dallas Stars, were swept by the Chicago Wolves with a 4-1 loss on Sunday night at the H-E-B Center at Cedar Park.
Chicago’s Chris Terry put the Wolves on top 54 seconds into the first by cleaning a loose puck up near the slot and shoveling it past Remi Poirier. Terry then connected on a one-timer from Vasily Ponomarev to score another goal, which made it 2-0 for the Wolves at the 11:48 mark.
In the second period, Terry completed a hat trick by scoring a third unanswered goal to make it 3-0 Chicago at 13:43.
The third period saw Logan Stankoven score on a rebound off the dasher behind Chicago’s goal to break up Adam Scheel’s shutout bid with 6:50 remaining in regulation. However, Nathan Sucese thwarted any potential comeback by scoring an empty-net goal with 2:53 remaining to lock in a 4-1 victory for the Wolves and sweep of the two-game series.
In goal for the Wolves, Scheel held the Stars to one goal for a second straight night and improved his record to 6-7-3 with the win after making 34 stops. For the Stars, Poirier came down with the loss to fall to 11-6-2 after making 24 saves on 27 shots.
The Stars hit the road for their next action, a two-game series against the Milwaukee Admirals that begins on Friday night with a 7:00 p.m. face-off at UW-Milwaukee Panther Arena in Wisconsin.
