"We got off to a terrible start tonight," said Wolves coach Scott Arniel. "When we decided to start working we ended up playing two decent periods of hockey, but it is hard to overcome a 4-goal lead in hockey."

The Stars (23-12-3-2) netted their first goal at 2:47 when left wing Mike Hedden stickhandled to the front of the crease and was poke-checked by Wolves goaltender Matt Climie. But the puck bounced right to the stick of right wing Alex Chiasson and he snapped a shot over Climie's glove. Right wing Austin Smith gave Texas a 2-0 lead 12 seconds later when he fired a one-timer from the slot into the net as Climie was leaning the wrong way.

Chiasson's second goal came at 10:32, and center Toby Peterson's breakaway goal at 13:57 of the first period gave the Stars a 4-0 lead and sent Climie to the bench in favor of Joe Cannata.

The Wolves got on the scoreboard with a power-play goal at 15:23 when Gordon redirected Hunt's shot from the high slot past Stars goaltender Jack Campbell (6-5-2).

The Wolves pulled to within 4-2 when Davies tipped a Haydar shot past Campbell 81 seconds into the second period.

Hedden scored on a Stars power play at 12:41 of the middle period when his pass attempt jumped over the stick of a Wolves defender and bounced over Cannata's head.

Haydar answered with his first goal when his wraparound attempt ricocheted off the leg of a Texas skater and squirted through Campbell's arm and body at 16:52.

Center Taylor Vause netted the Stars' final goal 3:06 into the third period when he intercepted a Wolves breakout pass from behind the net and jammed the puck through Cannata's legs.

Cannata (1-1-0) stopped 12 of 14 shots in 43:48 of relief duty, while Climie posted 7 saves on 11 shots.

Haydar's second goal came at 9:34 of the final period when he redirected Gordon's shot past Campbell (27 saves).

The Wolves will look to bounce back today when they host the Houston Aeros at 7 p.m. at the Allstate Arena.
