On the Farm Report: 4-1-10

We take another look at the Stars’ prospects in minor league, college, junior and European hockey leagues.

Texas Stars (AHL):

Peters

The Texas Stars came from behind to beat the Chicago Wolves 4-3 Friday night in a shootout. Warren Peters scored the first two Stars goals, as well as the deciding goal in the fifth round of the shootout. Down 3-2 late in the third period, Raymond Sawada tipped in a rebound to tie the game and force overtime. Peters picked up an assist on Sawada’s goal. Garrett Stafford earned two assists in the game, and Brent Krahn made 20 saves on 23 shots, stopping another four out of five in the shootout.

Texas won another game in the shootout Saturday, this time against the Grand Rapids Griffins by a score of 5-4. Andrew Hutchinson scored at the 5:53 mark of the first period to put the Stars up 1-0, and Peters added another goal just 23 seconds later to increase the lead. The Griffins tied the game near the end of the first, but Mathieu Beaudoin scored twice – each time giving Texas the lead, before Grand Rapids tied it again at 4-4 in the second period. The game remained tied until the shootout, when three of four Texas shooters found the back of the net. Matt Climie earned his 20th win of the season, stopping 41 total shots – 35 in regulation, three in overtime, and all three shots he faced in the shootout.

On Sunday, the Stars won their third game on the road in as many days, shutting down Chicago 5-0. Brent Krahn stopped all 36 shots he faced for his fifth shutout of the season, improving to 16-3-0. Colton Sceviour scored his eighth goal of the season at the 2:19 mark of the first period to give Texas an early lead. Mathieu Tousignant and Luke Gazdic scored just 21 seconds apart in the second period, and Francis Wathier added a final insurance marker at the end of the middle frame. With the win, the Stars clinched a spot in the Calder Cup Playoffs, which start later this month.

Texas finished its 12-day, seven game road trip with yet another shootout win, this time against the Milwaukee Admirals by a score of 3-2. Aaron Gagnon scored both Texas goals in regulation, his team-leading 25th and 26th of the season. The game went into the shootout tied at 2-2, thanks in large part to Climie’s 27 saves on 29 shots, including five saves in the extra frame. Texas won the shootout in the fifth round behind goals by Sceviour, Gagnon and Travis Morin.

The Stars finished their seven-game road trip 6-1-0, and return home for three more games of the State Farm Lone Star Faceoff, the series of games played between the three AHL teams in the state of Texas: The Texas Stars, the San Antonio Rampage and the Houston Aeros. Texas hosts San Antonio on Friday night, then welcomes Houston to town on Saturday before its final regular season matchup against San Antonio on Tuesday.

Idaho Steelheads (ECHL):

The Idaho Steelheads, who are gearing up for the playoffs as well, split two games with the Victoria Salmon Kings on Friday and Saturday, losing the first contest 1-0 and winning the second one by a score of 5-1. Goaltender Richard Bachman made 51 saves on 53 shots against Victoria over the weekend, and then stopped all 25 shots he faced against the Alaska Aces on Tuesday in the Steelheads’ 2-0 win. Idaho lost Wednesday’s rematch against Alaska 4-3 in the shootout, despite Bachman’s 34 saves. Defenseman Guillaume Monast and left wing Michael Neal each picked up assists in Wednesday’s game, and Monast was a plus-3.

Over the weekend, the Steelheads clinched the Brabham Cup, the trophy awarded to the ECHL team that finishes with the most points in the regular season. Idaho (48-16-6, 102 points), will have home-ice advantage throughout the ECHL Kelly Cup Playoffs.

The Steelheads play their final two regular season games at Bakersfield on Friday and Saturday. The team will then get a bye in the first round of the playoffs, before their next scheduled home games on April 16-17 in the second round of the postseason.

Elsewhere:

Defenseman Hubert Labrie of the Gatineau Olympiques (QMJHL) scored two goals in Gatineau’s Game 7 victory over Montreal, including the game-winner in double overtime. Labrie finished the first-round series tied for the team lead with six points (two goals, four assists).

Miami (OH) University, which features two Stars’ prospects, left wing Curtis McKenzie and right wing Reilly Smith, advanced to the Frozen Four with victories over Alabama-Huntsville and Michigan in the first two rounds of the NCAA Tournament. McKenzie scored a goal and an assist in Miami’s 2-1 win over Alabama-Huntsville, and two assists in the Redhawks’ 3-2 comeback win against Michigan. McKenzie was named to the All-Midwest Regional Team. Smith has yet to reach the score sheet so far in the tournament. Miami plays Boston College in the semifinal on Thursday at 7:30 p.m. The game will be televised on ESPN2, and the winner will play either Wisconsin or Rochester Institute of Technology in the final.

Defensemen Jordie Benn, the brother of Dallas Stars’ left wing Jamie Benn, plays for the Allen Americans of the Central Hockey League. Allen is in the first round of the CHL Playoffs, leading the best-of-seven series with the Laredo Bucks 2-1. Benn has played in all three games, registering two penalty minutes.
