Stars down 4-1 after 1
By Mark Stepneski
Not a great start for the Stars at the NHL Prospects Tournament in Traverse City. They're down 4-1 to the Detroit Red Wings after the first period.
The Red Wings scored three goals in a 1:00 span early in the first period to take a 3-0 lead on the Stars and Jack Campbell, who faced some quality chances in the first period.
The first goal came came on a power play and Detroit's Tomas Tatar made a great move and finished off the play with a great shot that found the top of the net. The second goal looked a little iffy on Campbell's part, but Stars defenseman Antoine Corbin got beat on a race to a puck and Detroit's Trevor Parkes beat Campbell with a shot from the left circle. A goal off a rebound in front of the net made it 3-0.
Tomas Vincour scored off a wrap-around for the Stars to make it 3-1, but Detroit scored late in the first off a great shot from the left circle by Brooks Macek to make it a 4-1 game.
As for the Stars, the line of Matt Tassone, Ondrej Romand and Tomas Vincour has had some good shifts. The line of Kevin King, Tristan King and Scott Glennie have created some good chances as well.
