Texas Stars stop Oklahoma City Barons again

From Staff Reports Published: March 22, 2014

Travis Morin and Justin Dowling scored two goals apiece as the Texas Stars ralled to beat the Oklahoma City Barons for the second straight game, 5-3 on Saturday night in Cedar Park, Texas.

Barons goaltender Laurent Brossoit, recently called up to the AHL, stopped 38 of the 42 shots he faced. Travis Ewanyk and Matt Ford scored early as the Barons jumped out to a 2-0 lead after one period, but the Stars scored twice in the second to tie it.

After the Stars took a 3-2 lead on Dowling’s first goal of the night, Andrew Miller tied it off an Austin Fyten centering pass. But Texas pulled away late to secure the victory.

Oklahoma City returns home Tuesday evening to face the San Antonio Rampage at 7 p.m. at the Cox Convention Center.
