The Adirondack Flames need every win they can get in the hunt for the playoffs. So Wednesday’s 7-4 loss to Texas was not how they wanted to start the road trip.
The Flames scored first and took a lead into the first intermission, but it didn’t last long. Texas scored two goals in 20 seconds and three in about three minutes in the second period. The Flames couldn’t recover after that.
Bill Arnold scored first for the Flames, nine minutes into the game, but Travis Morin responded two minutes later for the Stars. Max Reinhart’s shorthanded goal late in the first period gave the Flames’ their last lead.
Garnet Hathaway scored late in the second and Emile Poirier did so late in the third to round our the Flames’ scoring.
