The Stars closed to 4-3 in the third period with Davies serving a four-minute penalty. Texas left winger Matt Fraser beat Wolves goalie Matt Climie with a backhanded shot at 5:03.

Stars center Travis Morin tied the score at 1, redirecting a shot by Fraser over Climie's right shoulder at 14:20 of the first period.
