January 19, 2020 - American Hockey League (AHL) - Stockton Heat News Release

STOCKTON, Calif. - Goals from Alex Gallant and Alan Quine allowed the Stockton Heat to erase a 3-1 deficit in the third period, but Dan Renouf found the back of the net with just 58 seconds remaining in regulation to give Colorado a 4-3 win Saturday night at the annual Teddy Bear Toss game. A crowd of 5,543, the largest of the season at Stockton Arena, attended the popular theme night and was brought to action 12:55 into the contest as Austin Czarnik lit the lamp to pull Stockton even at 1-1 in the opening frame. Colorado produced the lone goal of the second, then quickly doubled the advantage early in the third to go up 3-1 before Stockton's late rally. Logan O'Connor paced the visiting team with a pair of goals, while Stockton got multi-point efforts from Czarnik and Quine.
