Stars draw even with Game 2 win in Tucson

The Pacific Division Finals are all tied up after Texas earned a 4-1 win over Tucson in Game 2 on Friday night.

The best-of-seven series shifts to Cedar Park for the next three games, beginning Monday.

Sheldon Dries deflected a Remi Elie shot home for his second goal of the postseason to give the Stars a 1-0 lead at 16:03 of the first period, and Curtis McKenzie got a piece of Gavin Bayreuther‘s shot for his first of the playoffs with 38.5 seconds to go in the opening stanza.

Lane Pederson got the Roadrunners on the board, scoring his third goal of the playoffs with 11:33 left in regulation.

But Brian Flynn added two empty-net goals — his fourth and fifth goals of the postseason — to seal the win for Texas.

Mike McKenna (4-2) made 32 saves in the win, including 18 in the third period.

Adin Hill (4-2) stopped 28 of 30 shots in the loss.
