The Stars were only one player short of a full line-up as new signing, Chris Lijdsman had to sit out as he awaits his international clearance and two-way players, Jonathan McBean and Ben Brown were both called up into the Dundee squad as well.

Jeff Mason’s powerplay unit took just 50 seconds to convert on the man advantage as Romans Semjonovs waited behind the Devils net before passing the puck out to the left side for Ben Sokay to try a narrow-angle shot and his quick finish beat Ben Bowns at his near post, after 10 minutes.
