Rychel Scores Heat First Goal in Loss

October 6, 2018 - American Hockey League (AHL) - Stockton Heat News Release

BAKERSFIELD, CALIF. - Kerby Rychel scored the first goal of the season for the Stockton Heat but Bakersfield's special teams struck six times as the Heat fell 8-1. Bakersfield scored four power-play goals and added two shorthanded goals to get past the Heat on opening night. After the Condors broke through in the first period on the power-play, the Heat had a power-play chance in the early goings of the second period, but just 27 seconds in Patrick Russell scored the shorthanded goal to put the home team up 2-0. Then it was three-straight power-play goals that put the Heat in a hole. Stockton tried to shake things up with the goaltending change but the Condors tucked two more past Jon Gillies, totaling six goals in the second period. After a second shorthanded goal to start the third, the Heat finally got on the board thanks to Rychel but it wasn't enough to overcome the Condors. The Heat shift focus to tomorrow when the team opens up the home portion of their schedule at 6:00 p.m. Come early and enjoy the Heat Zone Pregame Party starting at 4:00 p.m. with live music, food trucks, activities and more!
