THIRD PERIOD SURGE NOT ENOUGH FOR ROCKFORD

By: Mike Peck
Hogs drop 2-1 decision to the Stars

Cedar Park, Tex.- For the second straight night a one-goal game failed to swing the Rockford IceHogs way. Rockford fell 2-1 to the Texas Stars at Cedar Park Center on Saturday, a night after dropping a 6-5 decision to the Stars in overtime.

The Stars struck first on Saturday late in period one. Ondrej Roman one-timed a Maxime Fortunas pass from on top of the right faceoff circle and Brandon Segal tipped it through traffic and underneath Alec Richards at 19:50 for the 1-0 advantage.

In the second period the Texas lead was extended to 2-0 with a power-play marker.  Roman’s cross-ice pass was deflected by IceHogs winger Rob Klinkhammer, but past Richards and in at 8:57.

Penalties plagued Rockford in the middle frame as the Stars had seven straight power plays, including five that were counted in the second period alone. Two carried over to the third period.  Rockford played nearly seven-straight minutes of short-handed hockey in the period

Rockford got a goal back in the third period as their power-play notched a tally for a fourth straight game. Shawn Lalonde’s blast from the point was redirected by Ryan Potulny past Richard Bachman and in for his 14th goal of the season at 5:56.

That was all Rockford managed, however, as they couldn’t convert with the extra attacker on in the final minute.

Rockford was outshot 26-24 in the contest and finished 1-5 on the power play while holding the Stars to 1-7 on the night.

Next Home Game:
