Ritchie two goals, Nilstorp 26 saves as Stars hand Heat fourth straight loss

CEDAR PARK, Texas - Brett Ritchie scored twice and Christopher Nilstorp made 26 saves as the Texas Stars blanked the visiting Abbotsford Heat 5-0 on Friday in American Hockey League action.

Justin Dowling, Travis Morin and Francis Wathier also scored for the Stars (22-10-5), who bypassed Abbotsford for top spot in the West Division, and Mike Hedden tacked on two assists.

Defenceman John Ramage was a team-worst minus-4 for the Heat (23-13-2), who dropped their fourth game in a row.

Joey MacDonald turned away 38-of-43 shots for Abbotsford.

Texas went 2 for 7 on the power play while the Heat failed to score on three chances with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

When somebody goes out and is there to score goals, but is also there to make some big hits, fight, do all of those things, and he has a great mustache, it was great to see him get that hit and get everybody going.
