Heat Clipped by Eagles Saturday

November 27, 2021 - American Hockey League (AHL) - Stockton Heat News Release


LOVELAND, Colo. - Martin Pospisil found his way onto the score sheet for the second consecutive game since returning from injury but the Stockton Heat (11-2-2-0) dropped the weekend finale against Colorado (7-7-1-2) by a 5-1 final Saturday in Loveland.

For the second time in as many nights, Stockton and Colorado battled to a scoreless tie through 20 minutes, with the Heat leading 9-6 in shots on goal in the opening frame. The Eagles grabbed control of the contest in the second with three goals, two of which coming in the final minute, to seize a 3-0 edge through two periods.

Pospisil's marker came 4:48 into the final frame, with helpers from Emilio Pettersen and Connor Zary, but the Eagles were able to nip the comeback bid in the bud with a goal of their own just over three minutes later. A deflection goal with 6:25 to go in the game produced the 5-1 final in favor of the home team.
