Heat Melts the Hogs 2-1
Rockford's Brandon Segal drives the puck towards the net, while Abbotsford's Leland Irving blocks his way.
The sparks always fly when the IceHogs play against the Abbotsford Heat and Saturday night's game was no exception. The tension between the teams came to a boil several times, resulting in 2 fights and a handful of scrums. The game itself appeared to be heading for overtime when Ben Walter scored a goal late in the 3rd period, securing the 2-1 win for the Heat.
Saturday night was also Teddy Bear Toss Night and Rockford Fans did not disappoint. A grand total of 1,221 stuffed animals were tossed by fans to the ice after Brett McLean scored the first goal for the IceHogs at 14:26 in the first frame.
