The goal that Matt Tassone scored in the first period would prove to be the only goal scored by a Stars player in the game against the prospects from St. Louis. The 6-1 defeat would put a wrench in the confidence of the prospects going into their game against the Wild tomorrow.
The Terrible Trio of Glennie, Ritchie and Frasier have lost their touch ever since dominating play in the 8-2 win against the Hurricane squad. Since then they have been invisible many of their shifts and that is likely the main culprit of the two consecutive losses the prospects have faced. If they can’t find it again the tournament will likely be more of the same.
Dillon is again proving to be the best player on the team, stepping in for team mates, playing to his size and skill and showing the staff that they were right to take a chance on the unsigned defensemen. While the moves in the off-season left absolutely no room for any prospect to make the team without someone being lost to a 2 way situation you have to think that Dillon might be the guy who gets to take that risk at this point. Keeping in mind that this is simply the prospect tournament and training camp is a whole new world for these guys. Regardless it bodes well for the Texas Stars who want to return to the playoffs and make their way deep again.
