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

There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
