The Stars tied the game after Nick Baptiste converted a power-play opportunity at 10:19 of the final period, but Tyler Angle responded with a shorthanded tally at 14:00 off feeds from Liam Foudy and Jake Christiansen to regain the lead. The Monsters secured the win following an empty-net goal from Angle assisted by Foudy and Gavin Bayreuther bringing the final score to 3-1.

 

Cleveland’s Brad Thiessen made 31 saves in victory while Texas’ Tomas Sholl stopped 32 shots in defeat.
