GAME 4 SUMMARY:
The Texas stars pulled off a huge win in their game 4 tilt with the St.Johns IceCaps. Halfway through the second period, the Stars found themselves down 3-0 and being considerably outshot. Texas would go on to score three unanswered in regulation to force their 5th postseason overtime. It would take a little over 2 minutes for Brendan Ranford to set up Travis Morin to send the Stars to unfamiliar territory - a game away from winning the Calder Cup. The win would be the 2nd straight win in overtime and their 5th in the postseason - all of which on the road, an AHL record.

What to watch for:
Texas: The group of Travis Morin, Brendan Ranford, and Curtis McKenzie were on fire in game 4. The three would combine to score and assist each other in three of the teams 4 goals. Travis Morin now leads the league in playoff goals at 9.
St.Johns: Michael Hutchinson continues to frustrate Stars shooters with great saves against quality chances over and over. Sitting at a .940 save percentage for the playoffs, the young 24 year old looks to come up big for his team and send the series back to Cedar Park.
