Stockton Sunday: A Wild Week

A crazy week in Stockton where the losing team in both games scored 5 goals

It’s a day early, but Happy Halloween to all Flames and Heat fans as we begin another Stockton Sunday post here at Matchsticks and Gasoline. It was certainly a scary week for AHL goaltenders as the information below will show.

Last Week’s Games:

It was a wild night in Stockton’s first road game of the season as the Heat scored 7 goals on 28 shots in the game. Leading the way was Morgan Klimchuk with 2 goals and 2 assists, and Daniel Pribyl with 1 goal and 3 assists. Both set Stockton records with a 4 point game. Garnet Hathaway, Hunter Shinkaruk, Andrew Mangiapane, and Ryan Lomberg also scored for the Heat. Jon Gillies made 32 saves on 37 shots for the win.

Friday: Stockton Heat 5 @ Tuscon Roadrunners (Arizona) 6

Garnet Hathaway, Mike Angelidis, Linden Vey, Mark Jankowski, and Morgan Klimchuk all scored for Stockton while Rasmus Andersson recorded 3 assists. Gillies took the loss, allowing 6 goals on 33 shots. The Heat get a chance at revenge tonight against Tuscon.
