On a night where the Stars had the offense going for them, including out-shooting the Rivermen 36-19 and having 5 PP Chances throughout the game as well as keeping the Rivermen keeping the number of shots down and getting lower as the game went out (8 in the 1st, 6 in the 2nd and 5 in the 3rd).
Without a doubt the player of the game was Peoria Rivermen Goalie Jake Allen as he stopped all 36 Texas Stars Shots to stun and frustrate the Texas Stars Offense and the crowd of 4438 all night long as the Rivermen took down the Stars 2-0 at the Cedar Park Center on Saturday Night.
Texas Stars Goalie Brent Krahn had 17 saves on 19 shots while Peoria had goals from Nicholas Drazenovic in the first period. Then later on in the 3rd, Rivermen Center Phil Mcrea has had a good start to his pro career for the 20 year old as he scored his 4th goal of the year, along a pair of assists that take him to 6 points in 9 games so far this season.
