Joey Crabb has winner in San Antonio Rampage's 5-1 victory over Abbotsford Heat

SAN ANTONIO - Joey Crabb's power-play goal in the first period was the eventual winner as the San Antonio Rampage scored five unanswered goals in a 5-1 victory over the Abbotsford Heat on Tuesday in American Hockey League play.

John McFarland, Colby Robak and Matt Gilroy also scored on the man advantage for San Antonio (13-20-3), while Bobby Butler had an even-strength goal.

Jacob Markstrom made 27 saves as the Rampage ended a three-game skid.

Mark Cundari's goal 1:35 into the game gave Abbotsford (23-12-2) a 1-0 lead. Joni Ortio stopped 19 of 23 shots in 46:36 of work for the Heat. Joey MacDonald turned aside six of seven shots in relief.

San Antonio went 4 for 6 on the power play, while Abbotsford didn't score on its five man advantages.

Quote of the Day

I'm very excited about what happened today. We've worked on this deal with Toronto for a month, or over a month. It got a little bit of legs on draft day, but it really heated up last night, and we were able to complete the deal today.
