The AHL affiliate of the Calgary Flames, the Stockton Heat, have had a strong showing so far in this year's playoffs. They have made it all the way to the Western Conference Finals, but this series against the Chicago Wolves is not going the way they would like it to.
Two games into the series, the Heat find themselves down two games to zero in the best of seven. They lost game one with a score of 5-4 in overtime and then lost game two with a score of 3-2.
At the end of the first period, the score was tied up at 1-1 with a goal from Eetu Tuulola of the Heat met with one goal from Jack Drury of the Wolves.
Heading into the second frame each team was able to get one more goal each, thanks to Justin Kirkland for the Heat and Noel Gunler for the Wolves.
In the third period, the Wolves scored the lone, game-winning goal from Josh Leivo with less than a minute to go.
There is some good news for the Heat, however, as they'll have the home-ice advantage with the next three games being played in Stockton. The next game is on June 8 at 6:30 pm.
The Heat finished the regular season by claiming the Pacific Division with a record of 45-16-5.
The Wolves, who had a regular-season record of 50-16-5, were the only team in the Western Conference to have a better record than the Heat during the regular season.
