The good news: the Stockton Heat won their last weekend matinee game by an 8-1 score. Adam Ruzicka and Martin Pospisil both had three points for the Heat on Feb. 26 en route to the commanding victory.
The bad news: Stockton’s first match of the 2020-21 season was also an afternoon matinee game. It did not go nearly as well. The Heat registered the first seven shots of their Feb. 21 season-opener; unfortunately, their opponents, the Marlies, responded by scoring the first seven goals of the game. Luke Philp eventually scored to cement a 7-1 loss for the home side.
