Abbotsford, BC - The Abbotsford Heat lost 3-1 to the Lake Erie Monsters (AHL affiliate of Colorado Avalanche) on Saturday night at the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre (AESC). The Heat are now 4-4-0-1 on the season.

Heat rookie Corban Knight scored his second goal in as many games, and is now tied with Paul Byron for the Heat scoring lead with seven points (3+4).

Corban Knight gave the Heat a 1-0 lead with a power play goal at 9:46 of the first period. Knight’s third goal of the season was assisted by Ben Street and Drew MacKenzie. Both goalies were busy in the first period, with Reto Berra making 11 saves for Abbotsford and Calvin Pickard making 9 saves.

The Monsters scored again early in the third with a goal by former Heat forward Guillaume Desbiens at 4:55. Despite eight shots in the third period, Abbotsford was unable to score on Lake Erie’s Calvin Pickard.

Reto Berra made 24 saves on 27 shots, while Calvin Pickard stopped 23 of 24 shots for Lake Erie.
