GAWDIN POTS A PAIR AS STOCKTON HEAT EARN POINT FRIDAY

STOCKTON, Calif. – Glenn Gawdin struck for a pair of goals, including the game-tying strike with just 3.7 seconds left in regulation to help the Stockton Heat earn a point in the club’s final game before the All Star Break, a 4-3 overtime defeat against Ontario at Stockton Arena.

The Heat were able to take a pair of one-goal leads, Gawdin lighting the lamp first for a 1-0 edge and Alan Quine finding the back of the net to put Stockton ahead 2-1 in the second frame, but Ontario was able to counter each time and eventually take a 3-2 lead with just 2:32 left in the contest. After Gawdin’s late marker pushed the game to overtime, Ontario captain Brett Sutter was able to light the lamp shorthanded for the winning goal. Artyom Zagidulin made 35 saves in the contest. Stockton returns to action next Saturday, February 1 at home against the Bakersfield Condors.

Stockton HEAT PULL AWAY FROM REIGN IN 6-3 WIN

STOCKTON, Calif. – Four Heat players notched multi-point efforts as the Stockton Heat rattled off three unanswered goals to seize a 6-3 win Friday night over the Ontario Reign.

Austin Czarnik opened the scoring 4:43 into the game, running his goal-scoring streak up to an AHL-best six games, before Ontario countered midway through the frame to draw even through 20 minutes. A six-goal second period saw the Heat and Reign punch and counter-punch, Rinat Valiev lighting the lamp before a Jaret Anderson-Dolan answer, then Buddy Robinson score before Sean Durzi found the back of the net. It was all Heat from there with three consecutive strikes, from Froese, Philp and Adam Ruzicka, for the Friday night win.
