I'll try to update this blog article tomorrow when I have more time. I wanted to get something up tonight in case any fans out there wanted to leave comments.
Scoring for the Stars tonight was Luke Johnson (PP), Dominik Shine, and of course Brad Hawkinson. Jackson Teichroeb had a tremendous game tonight, stopping 30 of 32 for his 13th win of the season. When the Stars were playing timid in the third period, and Omaha was swarming, Teichroeb was a calming presence between the pipes. He's a big reason why the Stars got the two points.
Big, big win tonight against a hungry Omaha club fighting to make the playoffs. The Stars really helped themselves with the two points tonight to further distance themselves from the fifth-place Lancers, and the fourth-place Waterloo Blackhawks (who lost 4-1 tonight to the Dubuque Fighting Saints).
Enjoy the win, folks! Go Stars!
