Parsons Stops 45 Shots as Heat Fall in Preseason Finale

September 30, 2018 - American Hockey League (AHL) - Stockton Heat News Release

STOCKTON, CALIF. - The Heat received another marvelous performance from their goaltender Tyler Parsons, who stopped 45 of 49 shots, but a late power-play goal by the Condors, their third of the evening, ended the game and the preseason as Bakersfield took a 4-3 win. Much like the first preseason game last night, the Heat jumped out first and even took a 2-1 lead into the dressing room after the first period thanks to a pair of good plays by Buddy Robinson that resulted in two terrific Tyler Graovac goals. Bakersfield tied things up in the second with their first power-play tally of the preseason after being stymied by the Heat penalty kill for the first seven chances of the preseason. They'd add another power-play tally in the third but less than 30 seconds later, Zach Fischer tied the game up for the Heat. Stockton continued to get into penalty trouble and eventually Mitch Callahan of the Condors struck for his second goal of the night with just seconds remaining to send the Heat to their second preseason loss.
