Game Story
The Manitoba Moose (11-8-1-1) and Texas Stars (11-8-1-1) did battle in a second straight matinee at the MTS Centre on Sunday afternoon.  The Moose flipped the script from yesterday’s game, scoring twice in 20 seconds to build a 2-0 lead.  Jack Roslovic got the scoring going by redirecting a Nelson Nogier point shot past Maxime Lagace before Patrice Cormier got free in front of the Texas net and potted his third of the year.  The Stars pulled within one just shy of the midway point of the frame when Travis Morin finished off a cross-crease feed from Matt Mangene.  The Moose restored their two goal advantage late in the period off a Jimmy Lodge powerplay goal to lead 3-1 after 20.

Texas pulled back within a goal 6:22 into the second as Matej Stransky deposited a rebound past a sprawling Ondrej Pavelec.  The one goal lead held until late in the frame when the Stars got themselves on even footing with the Moose.  Dustin Stevenson’s shot from the point found twine behind Pavelec, who was screened on the play, sending the teams to the final stanza tied 3-3.

Only 16 seconds into the third, Dan DeSalvo fired the puck toward the Texas net from the half-wall and it snuck between Lagace and the post to put the Moose back in front, 4-3.  The one goal lead proved insufficient when Texas tied things up on the powerplay with four minutes remaining.  Travis Morin looked to pass before slipping a shot five-hole, pulling the score to 4-4.  With time winding down, the Moose responded on a powerplay of their own.  Roslovic put a no-look feed right to the tape of DeSalvo who one-timed the eventual winner to the back of the net as the Moose came away with the 5-4 victory.

Quick Hits

  • Dan DeSalvo’s point streak reached six games with eight points (4G, 5A) over that span.
  • Jimmy Lodge reached a new career high with his fourth goal of the season.
  • Jake Baker picked up his first point of the season.
  • Game attendance was announced at 6,573.

Head Coach Pascal Vincent – “I really liked the way we responded because it was not an easy game.  We got the lead, and we know they can score goals, and they did.  They kept coming back and I liked our bench tonight.  We stayed composed and we did what we had to do.  The intensity was right, the way we managed our emotions today was much better than yesterday.”

Forward Dan DeSalvo – “We came out, we had a good first, okay second and a good enough third to close the deal and that’s what we needed.”

Forward Jack Roslovic on setting up the winning goal – “I think (DeSalvo) is just a great shooter.  The pass was open, that’s what we scouted and he did a great job of scoring.”
