GAME PREVIEW: San Diego Returns to Home Ice to Take on Texas in Game 3 (7:05 p.m. PT)

The Gulls look to bounce back from a tough road loss in Game 2 as they return to Valley View Casino Center for home ice advantage.

Both Games 1 and 2 took place at Cedar Park Center in Cedar Park, TX last week. The Gulls notched a 3-1 victory in Game 1, but fell 5-1 to the Stars in Game 2.

Stars winger Derek Hulak tallied the opening goal of Game 2 at 3:53 of the first frame. Nick Ritchie got San Diego on the board at 10:12, which concluded scoring for the Gulls. Esa Lindell and Matt Mangene each netted power play goals in the second period for Texas, followed up by two additional goals in the final frame by Curtis McKenzie and Justin Dowling.

Games 4 and 5* (*if necessary) will take place at Valley View Casino Center in San Diego, CA.

Puck drop for Game 3 is set for 7:05pm PT. Live game play-by-play will be broadcast on ESPN 1700AM and live game stream can be accessed via AHLLive.com.
