scored 11 seconds into the game on a deflection and never looked back.
“We needed that,” said Texas Stars head coach Glen Gulutzan, who is coaching the prospects at the tournament. “We talked about what we needed to do defensively and I thought our guys played well today.”
Dallas led, 2-1, after one period, outshooting the Blues, 16-5. Michael Neal
scored Dallas’ other goal in the first.Tristan King
and Kevin King rounded out the scoring for the Stars. Tyler Beskorowany
started in new for Dallas, and stopped 26-of-27 shots.
“I was happy with my effort today,” Beskorowany said. “I had a couple of turnovers in my own end playing the puck and it cost me a goal, but you learn from that.”
Gulutzan said afterwards that he felt his goalie played very calm.
“I thought he was very patient,” said Gulutzan “He had some good timing on many of his saves and he made some big ones.
“Overall I thought we played hard and disciplined. It was good to see and it is the kind of play we are looking for on our team."
