Stockton hosts Colorado for the first of two over the weekend. The Heat enter the game nine points behind Colorado for fifth in the Pacific Division but will have a chance to cut into that hole with a pair of games against the Eagles this weekend at Stockton Arena.


The Heat have enjoyed success against the newest AHL club, entering this weekend's pair of games with a record of 4-1-0-1 on the year against the Eagles. Stockton and Colorado have split their two games played in Stockton Arena with the Heat taking a 7-6 win early in January and the Eagles claiming a shootout victory on Jan. 21.


Alan Quine snapped a seven-game skid without a goal in the Heat's last game at Bakersfield, snapping a puck past Shane Starrett from the high slot. Quine is Stockton's scoring leader with 40 points on the season and rides a three-game scoring streak (1g,2a) into Saturday's contest.


The Heat and Eagles have both thrived on the man-advantage in this series, with Stockton coming into tonight's game clicking at 20 percent (6-for-30) and Colorado at 21.1 percent (4-for-19).


Forward Curtis Lazar was recalled by the Calgary Flames on Friday. Lazar, the Heat's lone All-Star representative, had 36 points with 16 goals in 46 games and led the Heat with four game-winning goals at the time of his call-up.


The Heat will hit home ice for the first time since Feb. 1 with tonight's game. Since Jan. 19, the Heat have played just twice at Stockton Arena - Jan. 21's contest with Colorado and a 6-4 setback to San Jose to start February.
