LAST TIME VS. BAKERSFIELD
Last night, Hunter Shinkaruk put the difference on the board on the power-play in the second period, and would add his second of the night in the third period to extend the Heat lead to two.

However, Joe Gambardella’s shot off a faceoff win pulled the Condors within one to make the end of the game interesting.  David Rittich made key saves at the end and Marek Hrivik scored his fourth goal of the season in the empty net for the 4-2 win.

WHO TO WATCH
Emile Poirier, last night’s third star, had his best game of the season with 3 assists in the win. Heat Head Coach Ryan Huska was quick to point out Poirier’s speed in last night’s game and mentioned that offensive chances continued to happen whenever number 21 was on the ice.

This team is tough to beat when they get contributions from all of their lines, and last night, Poirier’s line with Marek Hrivik and Morgan Klimchuk showcased the speed that makes it tough to defend against. Emile is no doubt the player to watch tonight for Stockton as he looks to build off his last night’s terrific performance. Poirier’s three-point night was his first such game since January 7th of last season when the forward scored 2 goals and 1 assist against Milwaukee.

CLUTCH KLIMCHUK
After last night’s tally, Morgan Klimchuk has now scored goals in back-to-back games on two separate occasions t

Stockton, Calif. – Hunter Shinkaruk recorded a pair of goals for the Heat, including the eventual game winner as the Heat improved to 9-4-0-1 on the season with the 4-2 win over Bakersfield.  Morgan Klimchuk got the Heat on the board but the Condors responded with a power-play goal just moments later.  Shinkaruk scored his first of the game just nine seconds into a Heat power play as a quick, tic-tac-toe pass from Oliver Kylington and Emile Poirier landed on Shinkaruk’s stick while streaking to the far post and would add his second of the game a period later.  The Condors would pull within one thanks to an offensive zone faceoff win that resulted in a quick Joe Gambardella shot that beat Rittich high-glove side.  Marek Hrivik would record his second point of the night with the empty netter to seal the win for Stockton, who now improve to 4-0-0-0 against Bakersfield this season. The Heat host the Condors tomorrow night at 6:00 p.m. for the final home game in the month of November during Hispanic Heritage night, where we celebrate our community’s Hispanic roots!  It will be another Hockey Night in Stockton presented by Budweiser, where fans 21-years-old and over can purchase a Bud & Burger combo for just $15! Plus, the first 1,500 fans into Stockton Arena will also receive a Stockton Heat scarf! We’ll host a Heat Zone pregame party FREE and open the public from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. featuring a kid’s zone, food trucks, live music, and a beergarden.
