Stars 2, Heat 1 (So) Fraser’s goal doesn’t hold up for Texas

Austin American-Statesman - - SPORTS BRIEFING - Staff report

The Ab­bots­ford Heat got a bit of re­venge against the Texas Stars on Satur­day night with a 2-1 shootout vic­tory in Bri­tish Columbia. Texas had won the first game of the week­end se­ries 3-1 Fri­day night.

Af­ter a score­less first pe­riod, the Stars broke through for a five-on­three power-play goal by Matt Fraser, a one­timer from the right face­off cir­cle that found the in­side of the left post at the 5-minute, 13-sec­ond mark.

Three min­utes later, the Heat re­sponded with a power-play goal by Krys Kolanos when Ben Street threaded a pass through the mid­dle to an un­marked Kolanos at the far left side of the net for an easy tap-in goal at 8:07.

A score­less third pe­riod took the game to over­time, but both teams failed to score, send­ing the game to a shootout.

Star de­fense­man Jordie Benn tied the shootout at 2-2, but on the next shot, Kolanos beat goalie Jack Camp­bell and won the shootout.

The Stars will re­turn from their road trip to face the San An­to­nio Ram­page at 7:30 p.m. Wed­nes­day at the Cedar Park Cen­ter.
