ABBOTSFORD, B.C. - Greg Moore's shootout winner gave the Bridgeport Sound Tigers a 4-3 win over the Abbotsford Heat in American Hockey League action Saturday.

Moore, the Sound Tigers' second shooter, faked Heat starter Matt Keetley and went to the backhand for the winner.

Bridgeport (11-10-0-1) played catch up all night - they entered the third period down 3-1, but battled back forcing overtime.

Just past the halfway point of the third, Jesse Joensuu cut through the middle of the ice and beat Keetley low glove side completing the comeback for the Sound Tigers who are now riding a four-game winning streak.

The special teams battle played a huge role in Bridgeport's ability to come back as they scored all three of their goals with the man advantage and finished the night 3-for-7.

Abbotsford (10-9-2-2) looked to have the game in control when Garth Murray picked up his second of the night giving the Heat a 3-1 lead halfway through the second period.

Both teams had opportunities to win the game in overtime with Bridgeport's Tomas Marcinko hitting the side of the net in the dying seconds. Moments earlier Abbotsford's Murray had an excellent chance for his third of the night but could not beat Sound Tigers' goalie Adam Munroe.

The Heat's other goal came from Riley Armstrong. Bridgeport had a pair from Sean Bentivoglio.

Keetley made 32 saves in the loss while Munroe stopped 41 for the win.
