Rochester, NY – The Abbotsford Heat tied the game in the third period to force overtime, but lost 3-2 to the Rochester Americans (AHL affiliate of the Buffalo Sabres) in the sixth round of a shootout at the Blue Cross Arena on Tuesday night.

Paul Byron tied the game for the Heat at 7:42 of the third period, assisted by Dustin Sylvester. The Heat failed to score on six shootout attempts after a scoreless overtime period.

Barry Brust stopped 29 of 31 shots in the game and five of six shootout attempts. David Leggio also stopped 29 of 31 shots, and all six Heat shootout attempts.
