The Stars made one change to their line-up from their last outing as Lucas Brine came in to start between the pipes for goalie, Kevin Carr as he and forward, Tommy Parrottino missed out.

In the opening minutes of the first period, Sheffield pressed hard for the first goal and Brine was doing well to beat away the many efforts, but in the fifth minute, the 21-year-old was unable to stop Mitchell Balmas lifting home Daniel Ciampini’s pass from behind the net.

Dundee responded well however and would create numerous chances to level the score but failed to get the final touch on the puck that would take it past Matt Greenfield in the Steelers net.

The visitors 1-0 lead remained intact at the end of the first thanks to their clearing of their lines and solid back-stopping by Brine at the other end.



In the second session, the Stars continued to edge closer to an equaliser and gained a huge momentum after defenseman, Xavier Pouliot dropped the glvoes with Sheffield’s Kevin Tansey for a heavyweight bout in response to a huge hit by Pouliot on Patrick Watling.
