Alexie Palchinski and Raela Packet cut the Wildcats' deficit to 3-2 by the midway point of the third, but Ledoux scored her second of the game on the power play to give the Stars their two-goal lead back with 8:44 left in the game.
Paige Fischer made 39 saves for the Wildcats, who were outshot 43-18.
