Note II: It was another team win for the Moose on Sunday who despite being lacking up front pulled off a 3rd period comeback against the Stars to send the game to overtime. It was an exhilarating five minutes without a whistle but both goalies played well and it was off to a shootout. While gimmicky the shootout went 12 rounds which was ultimately won by Leon Gawanke and held by Mikhail Berdin as Manitoba improves to 24-11-2-1 on the season. They are traveling to Texas today to kick off four games on the road.
