Sceviour does it big in Texas with three goals two assists, Stars whip Heat 9-3

CEDAR PARK, Texas - Colton Sceviour scored three times during the Texas Stars' six-goal third period, in a 9-3 victory over the Abbotsford Heat in American Hockey League play on Sunday.

Abbotsford (3-3-1) had a 3-1 lead in the second period before the Stars scored the next eight goals.

Sceviour was instrumental in tying the game 3-3, setting up second-period goals by Travis Morin and Chris Mueller.

Mike Hedden opened the scoring for Texas (4-1-1), and the Heat went in front with goals from Tyler Wotherspoon and Greg Nemisz. Chad Billins made it 3-1 Abbotsford in the second period, and it was all downhill from there.

Curtis McKenzie scored what proved to be the winning goal with the Stars' second power-play goal of the game at 2:02 of the third period. Screviour scored his first of the game, also on the power play, just 22 seconds later. He made it 5-3 with another power-play goal at 7:21. Cameron Gaunce and Matej Stransky rounded out the scoring for Texas.

Christopher Nilstorp made 20 saves for the Stars, while Heat goalie Laurent Brossoit turned back 33 of 42 shots.

Quote of the Day

It's really exciting. I'm pretty sure that when I play my first game I'm going to be emotional. To be back on the ice playing a game, being in game situations, with all the routines and rituals I do before games and during the game, I feel like I'm going to be emotional. I'm going to be really happy.
