Heat Drop Midweek Tilt to Ontario

April 11, 2019 - American Hockey League (AHL) - Stockton Heat News Release

STOCKTON, Calif. - Mason Morelli netted his first goal as a pro as the Stockton Heat dropped a 7-2 decision to the Ontario Reign Wednesday Night at Stockton Arena. The game went into the third period with a tight 3-2 score, but four unanswered in the final 20 minutes by the visiting team produced the lopsided final tally. The Heat got the game's first goal, Curtis Lazar scoring on the power play for his 20th marker of the season, but Ontario answered with three straight to take a 3-1 lead late in the second period. Morelli's score brought Stockton back to within striking distance, but a 4-0 third period in favor of the Reign produced the 7-2 final. The game snapped a streak of six games of Stockton limiting its opponents to three or fewer goals, its longest such run of the season.
