Texas Stars Roadrunner in return for Tucson Arena | Roadrunner
Pederson and newcomer Roy, a striker who entered the 2021 season with four full seasons in the American Hockey League and a few dozen NHL games, continue to be bright spots for the Roadrunners. Roy, the hero in extra time in last week’s comeback, reduced the lead to 4-2 barely a minute later. Roy’s team-strong fifth goal of the season is the eighth in the league.
As of Wednesday, Tucson had killed 17 straight sentences. But the Stars’ first two goals – 5:19 in the first and 7:44 in the second, both by Cole Schneider – came on one man with the Roadrunners.
“I just think we need a little patience. If we go down we need confidence that we will make it, and it doesn’t have to be done in the next shift or the next game. I think it just keeps going, ”said Roy. “If we do that, we’ll win a lot of games. We can’t take shifts and worry about the outcome in the middle of the game.
“We have the firepower to do it, we just have to run and stick with it,” he added.
For the first time in eight games this season, Tucson beat their opponents – this time by a margin of 37:31. Goalkeeper Ivan Prosvetov made 26 saves in his seventh start to the season. He is now 5-2 with a saving of 0.908 percent and 3.11 goals against the average. Prosetov is fourth in the league in terms of minutes played.
