Philip Larsen Scores, Texas Stars Even Series 1-1 With Milwaukee Admirals

The very odd combination of neither team wearing white jerseys. Also, Travis Morin of the Texas Stars.

Good news from "down on the farm" this evening where the Texas Stars evened their first round AHL Calder Cup series with the Milwaukee Admirals at a game a piece thanks in large part to a strong performance from Stars' goaltending prospect Richard Bachman, Philip Larsen and Aaron Gagnon.

After falling in game one by committing uncharacteristic mistakes, head coach Glen Gulutzan's team bounced back and played Texas Stars hockey, limiting the Admirals to just the lone tally while potting three of their own. The win gives them a split in Milwaukee and they have the opportunity to take the series by a stranglehold if they can win two of three in Cedar Park starting Tuesday.

Tomas Vincour recorded an assist tonight as did young defensive prospect Brenen Dillon and Philip Larsen scored off a deflection on a shot from Travis Morin, so it was another good night for Dallas Stars prospects. Scott Glennie, however, is again seeing 4th line minutes and did not record a point, a SOG or a +/- rating.

The Admirals were able to increase their attendance from 2,500~ on Wednesday to 6,500~ on Friday, all of whom had the pleasure of witnessing a Stars win.

Here's head coach Glen Gulutzan after the game:

"To be honest with you, I put absolutely no stock in being down, up, or whatever. Each game's its own. If you want to go back a year, we were up 2-0 going home for three [against Hershey], it doesn't help you. Won a series where we were down 2-0 [Ed. note: Hamilton], lost a series where we were up 2-0. Every team we've got to play, especially when the teams are so equally matched."
