In case you missed it the Texas Stars have rebounded in a big way from an embarrassing game 1 loss, taking a 2-1 series lead over the Milwaukee Admirals with a big 3-2 overtime win in from of 5,320 (on a Tuesday night!) in Austin last night. 

The Stars trailed 2-0 just 34 seconds into the third period and looked to be on their way to another frustrating loss. Bolstered by a raucous crowd, Philip Larsen put the Stars on the board with just under five minutes remaining in the game. Trailing by a goal late in the third period, Travis Morin then found Brad Lukowich at the point who immediately put the puck on net. Someone, the shot made its way through the crowd and tied the game, 2-2, with just 20.8 seconds remaining in regulation to send the game to overtime.

From Hundred Degree Hockey:

"Morin just made a great play," said Lukowich. Lukowich shot the puck into the melee in front f the net and it found twine. "We call it a puck with eyes," said Lukowich. 

Morin again made another great play, winning the game in overtime with a deflection off a Maxime Fortunus shot from the point just nine minutes into the extra frame.

The Stars get right back on the ice tonight, taking on the Admirals in Game 4 at home. Remember, Game 5 is on Friday in Austin, so if you have the ability I'd get down for some exciting playoff hockey.
