The Stars lost forward, Anthony Rinaldi from the line-up before the match and he joined defender, Chris McKay on the sidelines as he served the final game of his three match ban.

Mitchell Balmas opened the scoring on 13 minutes thanks to a huge slice of luck as his pass bounced off a defender and then off the inside of goalkeeper, Kevin Carr’s skate and into the Dundee net.

Then two minutes later, Daniel Ciampini doubled the lead with a neat finish into the top corner after skating on to a loose puck that popped out in front of the Dundee net, but in the 17th minute, Robert Dowd scored the best of the night.

The British forward was skating through on goal before he began to fall after being put under pressure from the Stars defender and Dowd still managed to get the shot off and past Carr, whilst falling.

 

 

In the second period, Ciampini netted another after he was left open on the back post and tapped home the pass from Zach Vinnell, inside 30 minutes and two minutes later, Marc-Olivier Vallerand added a powerplay goal.
