Roy makes 34 saves, Reinhart scores winner, as heat double up Admirals 4-2

MILWAUKEE - Olivier Roy made 34 saves as the Abbotsford Heat doubled up the host Milwaukee Admirals 4-2 on Friday in American Hockey League action.

Max Reinhart broke a 2-2 tie at 12:03 of the third period for the Heat (33-15-5) while Ben Street, Sven Baertschi and Brett Olsen had the others.

Taylor Beck and Vinny Saponari supplied the scoring for the Admirals (27-16-8) and Scott Darling turned away 26-of-29 shots in a losing cause.

Baertschi opened the scoring for Abbotsford exactly one minute into the first period, but Saponari responded at the 3:40 mark for Milwaukee.

Beck gave the Admirals their only lead of the game early in the second period before Street followed with a power-play goal for the Heat at 12:00.

After Reinhart scored to put Abbotsford ahead, Olson added insurance into an empty net at 19:59 of the third.

The Heat went 1 for 4 on the power play. The Admirals went 0 for 5.

Quote of the Day

Obviously there's a lot of expectations around me but it's something I try not to focus on. I'm just trying to go out there, be myself on the ice every day, try to get better, be myself around the guys in the locker room. I think that's what's made me successful and the person that I am.
