The Muskegon Lumberjacks shook up their roster earlier this week by trading their captain, but so it has not brought positive results.
Muskegon dropped its record to 14-16-4 on the season, good for 32 points and last place in the USHL’s Eastern Conference standings. The Lumberjacks are 14 points back of fourth-place Youngstown for the final playoff spot.
The Jacks closed their three-game road trip with a 0-2-1 record. They will return home to host the Bloomington Thunder next Friday and Saturday night.
The Stars opened the scoring with a goal from William D’Orsi at the 13:57 mark of the first period.
Muskegon’s Nathanial Kallen tied the game at 1-1 with a power play goal at 12:25 of the second period. Will Graber and newcomer Lucas Michaud assisted on the tally.
D’Orsi gave the Stars a 2-1 lead with a power play goal at the 18:03 mark of the second period.
Lincoln goaltender Peyton Jones picked up the victory, stopping 28 of 29 Lumberjack shots.
Goaltender Joey Daccord stopped 25 of 27 shots for the Lumberjacks.
