MacDonald makes 42 saves, Street scores twice as Heat extend win streak

DES MOINES, Iowa - Joey MacDonald stopped 42 shots as the Abbotsford Heat defeated the host Iowa Wild 2-1 on Sunday in American Hockey League action.

Ben Street scored twice for the Heat (17-5-1), who won their fourth game in a row and 13th in their last 14 outings.

Brett Bulmer scored the lone goal for the Wild (6-11-0), who dropped their sixth straight contest.

Iowa's John Curry turned aside 17-of-19 shots in a losing cause.

The Wild owned the first period, outshooting Abbotsford 20-5, and Bulmer opened the scoring at 14:01 while on the power play.

The game remained 1-0 for Iowa until 9:31 of the second period when Street responded for the Heat.

Street then scored the eventual winner at 11:27 of the second with a power-play goal.

The Wild kept the pressure on in the third period but couldn't beat MacDonald, who stopped 11 shots in the final 20 minutes to preserve the victory.

Abbotsford went 1 for 3 on the power play while Iowa scored once on five chances with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

Just the feel for the direction they were headed and what they're trying to do, it just felt that this is a really good thing for this organization. They've got the pieces. We can put something together and go on a run or two and be together for a while, and I'm really excited about that opportunity. The team we have here has an opportunity to win, and that's the most attractive thing.
