Stars Drown Monsters 4-1

April 6, 2014 – American Hockey League (AHL) Texas Stars CEDAR PARK, Texas – Texas Stars center Justin Dowling and left wing Mike Hedden each finished with two points on the game and goalie Cristopher Nilstorp stopped 30-of-31 shots in a 4-1 victory over the Lake Erie Monsters Sunday night in front of 4,538 fans at Cedar Park Center.

After a scoreless first period, Texas defenseman Jyrki Jokipakka opened up the scoring at 8:14 of the second frame taking a pass across the slot from center Justin Dowling and beating Lake Erie goaltender Sami Aittokallio stick-side. It was Jokipakka’s fifth goal of the year, assisted by Dowling and Mike Hedden. A mere 34 seconds later, the Monsters answered back to tie the game on a goal by David van der Gulik. Markus Lauridsen’s shot from the blue line was blocked in front, but Mark Olver reacted quickly to drop the puck to a waiting van der Gulik in the mid-slot for a snap shot into the net. Stars center Scott Glennie took back the lead with just over three minutes left in the period, one-timing a behind-the-back backhand pass from left wing Curtis McKenzie. It was a power play goal for Glennie, assisted by McKenzie and Travis Morin.

The score remained at 2-1 until the dying minutes of the third period. With 3:39 left, rookie Brett Ritchie scored an insurance goal bringing a pass from Hedden up the right side, cutting across the top of the crease and beating Aitokallio with a backhand upstairs for his 22nd goal of the year. Dowling would then cap off the scoring by notching a short-handed empty net goal with just over a minute left in regulation to seal the Stars’ victory 4-1.

Cristopher Nilstorp (25-12-4) finished with 30 saves on 31 shots to record his 25th win of the season in goal for Texas. Sami Aittokallio (13-14-3) stopped 23-of-26 shots faced and suffered his 14th loss of the year for Lake Erie. The Monsters out-shot the Stars 31-to-27 in the game and went 0-for-8 on the power play; Texas was 1-for-6 on the man advantage.

Notes: Brett Ritchie’s goal tonight, fifth in two games this weekend against Lake Erie, extended his current point streak to seven games. Ritchie has 13 points (7 goals, 6 assists) during his current streak. Mike Hedden extended his current assist and point streak to six games; he has nine assists and 10 points during that span. Travis Morin played in his 500th career professional game tonight.

The Texas Stars return to action on Friday, April 11th as they host the San Antonio Rampage at 7:30 p.m. at Cedar Park Center. Friday’s game is $3 Beer & $4 Robert Mondavi Private Selection Wine Night and is the Texas Stars Ear Bud with Carrying Case giveaway.

Israeli Apartheid Week comes to Aotearoa/ New Zealand

Israeli Apartheid Week comes to Aotearoa/ New Zealand

Auckland, 24th March 2014 – This week, students at university campuses in Auckland, Hamilton and Wellington will host a series of events as part of a global initiative, Israeli Apartheid Week (IAW). Events in New Zealand will include film screenings, live music, poetry and panel discussions.

IAW is an annual series of events held in cities internationally. This year, over 200 universities worldwide are hosting events as part of IAW. The aim of IAW is to educate people about the nature of Israel as an apartheid system and to build Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) campaigns as part of a growing global BDS movement.

South Africa has been one of the strongest participants in Israeli apartheid week this year. That says something about the parallels between the apartheid regime there, which was abolished in 1994, and what is happening to Palestinians today living under Israeli occupation and siege, says Auckland spokesperson Hone Fowler.

Over fifty Israeli laws explicitly discriminate against Palestinians. We want to highlight this, but also pressure Israel to end its discrimination through boycotts, just like New Zealanders did during the Springbok Tour, adds Fowler.

Marama Davidson, who will be speaking on a panel alongside veteran anti-apartheid activist, John Minto, on Thursday evening at Auckland University, sees the role of indigenous solidarity as very important. As a colonised people our experiences have much that resonates with the stories of other nations and there can only be strength in learning where our histories align says Davidson.

IAW in Auckland will round off with a live music and spoken word poetry event, Artists Against Apartheid at Grey Lynn Community Centre on Friday the 28th of March. Performers include Che Fus father, reggae artist Tigalua Ness, and Palestinian rapper Imagine This.

Art has always served on the frontlines of social change argues winner of the Rising Voices Youth Poetry Slam 2013, Mohamed Hassan, who will also be performing as part of the Friday night event. In its most primitive state, [art] serves to tell the stories that need to be heard. When we speak about Palestine, we are fighting to preserve the stories and identity of a world that is consciously being erased from history.

Full details of the nationwide events can be found at apartheidweek.org/events
