OKLAHOMA CITY - Reto Berra stopped 29 shots through regulation and four more in the shootout as the Abbotsford Heat edged the host Oklahoma City Barons 2-1 on Saturday in American Hockey League action.

Markus Granlund scored the shootout winner for the Heat (3-2-1) while Paul Byron scored in regulation.

Joel Broda supplied the offence for the Barons (3-3-1) as Richard Bachman made 28 saves in a losing cause.
