Street scores three times as Heat extend win streak to nine games

OKLAHOMA CITY - Ben Street scored three times, including the winner, as the Abbotsford Heat edged the host Oklahoma City Barons 5-4 on Friday in American Hockey League action.

Markus Granlund and Ben Hanowksi also scored for the Heat (13-4-1), who extended their win streak to nine games, while Blair Jones and Max Reinhart each chipped in with two assists.

Ryan Hamilton and Andrew Miller had a goal and an assist apiece for the Barons (6-7-2) and C.J. Stretch and Denis Grebeshkov scored the others.

Joni Ortio made 24 saves for Abbotsford.

In his first appearance with Oklahoma City while on a conditioning loan from the Edmonton Oilers, goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov allowed five goals on 22 shots.

Granlund opened the scoring 4:02 into the first period, but Miller responded just over four minutes later to make it 1-1 after 20 minutes of play.

Stretch and Grebeshkov put Oklahoma City ahead 3-1 early in the second period, but Abbotsford responded with power-play goals less than a minute apart to tie the game.

Hanowski scored first with the man advantage at 8:59 while Travis Ewanyk served a minor for interference. Street then scored his first goal of the game at 9:58 as Linus Omark sat in the box for interference.

Despite the Heat carrying the momentum, Hamilton scored at 14:11 to give the Barons a 4-3 lead heading into the final period.

Street tied the game for the Heat 6:22 into the third and then scored the eventual winner 27 seconds later.

Abbotsford went 2 for 4 on the power play while Oklahoma City was 0 for 1.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
