ABBOTSFORD, BC -- The Abbotsford Heat will look for their second win of the Western Conference Semifinals tonight when they host the Toronto Marlies (Toronto Maple Leafs) for Game 3. The Heat and Marlies play the next three games of the second round best-of-seven at the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre, after the first two games played in Toronto were split. Abbotsford has won six consecutive home games - winning the last five regular season games as well as the clinching third game of their first round sweep of the Milwaukee Admirals.
Early in this series the Heat have been led by rookie pivot Max Reinhart (1-1-2) and veteran centre Ben Walter (0-2-2) who each have a pair of points. Krys Kolanos leads all players in the series with nine points in five post-season games; he has one assist in the series.
The Heat and Marlies remain two of only three professional hockey teams in Canada still in action, with the AHL’s St. John’s IceCaps – who are in the Eastern Conference Semi-Finals.
