The Stockton Heat have lost four consecutive games. The Manitoba Moose have won four in a row.
Either both streaks continue on Saturday afternoon, or neither will. That outcome will be determined at 12:00 pm MT when the Heat and Moose meet for the second instalment of a five-game series.
Tyler Parsons and Walker Duehr both made their season debuts for the Heat in Thursday’s 5-2 loss to the Moose. Parsons made 20 saves on 25 shots in his first professional game since Mar. 6, 2020.
Matthew Phillips scored a goal on Thursday and moved into first place on the Heat with 20 points (eight goals, 12 assists) in 26 games.
