Roadrunners ride power play to 5-4 win over Heat

TUCSON, AZ -

Kyle Wood scored a pair of power play goals while Chris Muller posted four assists in a 5-4 win over the Stockton Heat Sunday afternoon.

The two teams traded goals three times through the first half in the game, with Stockton taking the lead and the Roadrunners responding to tie it each time until Mark Olver’s goal at 8:16 of the second period made it 3-3.

Tucson’s power play took over at that point, scoring a pair of man-advantage markers just 1:04 apart.  Wood’s second power play goal of the game made it 4-3 at 16:27 followed by Henrik Samuelsson’s eventual game winner at 17:31, his first goal of the season.

Stockton would narrow the gap by a goal in the third period but could not find the equalizer.  Marek Langhamer (26 saves) earned the win in his first start for Tucson since October 21.

The Roadrunners will now head out on a three-game western road swing starting Wednesday night in San Diego at 8 pm MT.  The radio pregame show starts 15 minutes prior to puck drop on flagship station 1450 KTZR.

Notes:
•    Chris Mueller’s four assists in the game established a new Roadrunners team high
•    Brendan Perlini’s goal gives him 11 on the year to lead the AHL in that category
•    Kyle Wood has six points (2-4-6) in his last three games
•    The Roadrunners went 3-for-6 on Power Plays during the game while the Heat finished 2-for-6
