Zary lighting it up as Wranglers continue to roll

by BRYAN WILSON @NHLFlames / CalgaryFlames.com

The Wranglers had their four-game winning streak snapped in overtime on Wednesday against the Ontario Reign, but despite the setback, it's still been a productive stretch for the Wranglers who have picked up nine of a possible 10 points in their last five games. (4-0-1).

Calgary picked up three wins in a row against the Abbotsford Canucks last weekend in a mini-series that had a tangible playoff feel to it. It was tough, physical hockey and the games were closely contested, with the first two needing extra time to determine a winner. In the end, the Wranglers swept the three-game set.

Wranglers look to finish strong heading into all-star break

by BRYAN WILSON @NHLFlames / CalgaryFlames.com

The Wranglers continue their five-game road trip this week with three games against the Abbotsford Canucks beginning Wednesday.

Calgary went winless against the Henderson Silver Knights in their last two games which is only the second time the Wranglers have lost back-to-back games all season.  

The Canucks (46 Pts.) sit three-points back of the second-place Wranglers in the Pacific Division, which makes these next few games very vital for Calgary, who hope to finish strong heading into the AHL All-Star break.

Wranglers leaning on character and experience to start the season

by BRYAN WILSON @NHLFlames / CalgaryFlames.com

The inaugural Wranglers season started with its share of adversity early on for the team.

The club suffered losses out of the gate but, as they say, adversity builds character and character is something this Wranglers team has by the bushelful, as they responded with back-to-back wins in their next two games.

Heat roll through Eagles to earn date with Wolves in Western Conference Finals

by BRANDON WEISS @NHLFlames / CalgaryFlames.com

There's a concept in fighting about what it takes to become the best, eliminating any doubt in the process.

You don't become a true champion, the saying goes, until you defend your title.

Spearheaded by a historic performance from Dustin Wolf and steady production from Justin Kirkland, the Heat did just that, reaffirming themselves as kings of the Pacific Division with a 3-1 series win over the Colorado Eagles.

Heat prevail in AHL's playoff version of the Battle of Alberta

by BRANDON WEISS @WeissBrandon1 / CalgaryFlames.com

Call it a stress test, a measuring stick, or a look in the mirror - playoff hockey will reveal cracks in the foundation, if there are any.

Stockton's first series of the Calder Cup Playoffs presented a challenge as they faced rival Bakersfield in a best-of-five series - the first-ever clash between the Highway 99 rivals in the AHL's version of the Battle of Alberta.

Three games played, three games won, just further proof that the Heat are built to withstand whatever is thrown at them.

The Heat continue March towards AHL regular-season crown

by BRANDON WEISS @WeissBrandon1 / CalgaryFlames.com

First goal was making the playoffs.

Next, it was winning the division.

Now, the Stockton Heat have their sights set even higher. They want it all.

"It's absolutely something we want to accomplish," said Matthew Phillips, who has paced the Pacific Division champions with 67 points this season. "We've had some goals as a team. We made the playoffs. We got the division. Now it's in our power to hold on to first in the league. That's something we want to accomplish, and we hold the power to control our place."

Rare setback serves as 'huge learning opportunity' for Heat

by BRANDON WEISS @WeissBrandon1 / CalgaryFlames.com

Win or learn.

There's been plenty of the former for the Stockton Heat this year, who entered a three-game mini-series against the Henderson Silver Knights with the AHL's best record. A fast start to the set saw the Heat erase a two-goal deficit in the final three minutes of regulation, then win the game less than a minute into overtime.

But, it's Vegas, and the house always wins eventually. The Silver Knights took Game 2, 4-2, and Game 3, 4-1, to steal the three-game set.
