    ABBOTSFORD, B. http://www.teamcolombiasoccer.com/Juan-Camilo-Zuniga-Copa-America-Jersey/ .C. - Lane MacDermids first goal of the season was the winner as the Abbotsford Heat edged the Oklahoma City Barons 4-2 in American Hockey League action Saturday night. MacDermid gave his club a two-goal cushion midway through the third period but stood as the winner after Curtis Hamilton scored his second of the game just 15 seconds later. MacDermid was acquired by the Calgary Flames through a trade early this season but had recorded no points in 10 games with the Edmonton Oilers minor-league affiliate. Corban Knight had a goal and an assist for the second night in a row, while Markus Granlund and Sven Baertschi also scored for Abbotsford (23-9-2). The Heat have won three straight games and retain first place in the AHLs Western Conference. Joni Ortio made 32 saves, giving him a league-high 15 wins. Richard Bachman stopped 22 shots for Oklahoma City (11-17-5), which is winless in its past six road games and just 1-7-1 in its last eight. It was Hamiltons first career multi-goal game, and also his first two scores this season. Hamilton put the Barons up 1-0 at 7:49 of the first. Tyler Pitlicks shot from the top of the circle was kicked out by Ortio but Hamilton, driving towards the net, knocked the rebound out of midair past the Finnish netminder. Brad Hunt nearly put Oklahoma City up by two with eight minutes to go in the first. He took a feed from Andrew Miller in the slot and beat Ortio glove side, but the puck ricocheted off the post, keeping the score 1-0. Granlunds 13th goal of the season got Abbotsford even with just 72 seconds remaining in the first. Granlund crossed the Barons blue-line one-on-one with a defender, stepped to the left and wired a slapshot that beat Bachman glove side, top corner. Thats the Finnish forwards first in five games. The Heat took the lead with less than three minutes to go in the second period. Ben Hanowski found Ben Street down low on a power play and Street quickly fed cross-crease to Knight, who one-timed it home for his ninth of the year and second in consecutive games. The Barons began the third period with a power play but couldnt capitalize. C.J. Stretch had the best opportunity to tie the game but was robbed at the side of the net by Ortio, who made the splits to deny the backdoor play. The teams exchanged goals 15 seconds apart midway through the third. First, MacDermid put the Heat up by two at 10:31, redirecting a great feed from Carter Bancks for his first of the season. Then Hamilton picked up his second of the game, rushing down the left side and hammering a slapshot from the top of the circle. The puck deflected off a defencemans leg, past Ortios glove, cutting the deficit back to 3-2. However, the Barons couldnt claw all the way back, despite outshooting the Heat 11-5 in the final frame. Hamilton sealed Oklahoma Citys fate when he took a slashing penalty with just over two minutes remaining that led to Baertschis power-play goal, a one-timer off a Knight feed. http://www.teamcolombiasoccer.com/Teofilo-Gutierrez-Copa-America-Jersey/ .S. Open title at Pebble Beach to winning the match that gave Europe victory in the Ryder Cup. He knew an encore was going to be tough. http://www.teamcolombiasoccer.com/Roger-Martinez-Copa-America-Jersey/ ;. -- A smattering of boos cascaded down on the Green Bay Packers at the half, trailing by double digits on a bone-chilling afternoon at Lambeau Field.DENVER - Colorado and Philadelphia appeared headed for a shootout when Ryan OReilly found the scoring touch that has eluded him most of the season.OReilly scored at 4:40 of overtime and the Avalanche rallied to beat the Flyers 4-3 to end a two-game skid.It was OReillys second goal in eight games. He is on pace for just 15 goals after leading the Avalanche with 28 a season ago.Scoring a goal and contributing to a win is something Ive been missing a lot lately, so definitely to have that is a relief and something Ive got to continue to bring, OReilly said.OReilly got a pass from defenceman Tyson Barrie and beat goalie Steve Mason with a shot just under the crossbar. It was OReillys seventh of the season.Its disappointing because were six minutes from grabbing two points, Flyers forward Jakub Voracek said. Just a couple of mistakes and it cost us the game.Semyon Varlamov had 26 saves and Jarome Iginla also scored for the Avalanche.Claude Giroux, Vincent Lecavalier and Voracek scored for Philadelphia. Mason finished with 29 saves for the Flyers, who have lost three in a row.I thought we played a pretty good game, Philadelphia coach Craig Berube said. Were playing pretty good hockey, (but) were finding ways to lose games. I thought we had the better of the play.Colorado had a 2-1 lead after two periods but Lecavalier tied it with his sixth goal 2:52 into the third.Giroux gave the Flyers a 3-2 lead when he skated through four Avalanche skaters and beat Varlamov with a power-play goal at 10 minutes of the third. It was his 13th of the season.Giroux showed why hes one of the top goal scorers in the league, Avalanche coach Patrick Roy said. Against a team like this you cant take bad penalties and we took a couple bad ones tonight we shouldnt have.A tripping penalty on defenceman Braydon Corburn put Colorado on the power play 90 seconds later and Iginla tied it with his ninth goal at 12:48. http://www.teamcolombiasoccer.com/David-Ospina-Copa-America-Jersey/. The Flyers got their first power-play goal in seven games in the first period. They worked the puck around the front of the net to Voracek, who beat Varlamov with a high shot at 10:14. It was his 15th goal of the season and ended his first multigame points drought of the season.The lead held until Nate Guenin scored at 10:47 of the second period. His shot from the point got through traffic and past Mason for his first goal of the season. It also ended Colorados scoreless streak that had reached 131:07. The Avalanche hadnt scored since early in the first period against Chicago on Saturday.It was an important one, Roy said. He put a puck on net and from the bench I just couldnt believe that went through. Some nights you need different guys to score goals for your team and tonight was the case.Colorados next goal came a little quicker. Borna Rendulic, who was recalled from Lake Erie earlier in the day, beat Mason with a shot from the top of the right circle at 14:17 of the second.It was Rendulics first NHL goal and it came in his fourth NHL game. He also is the first Croatian-born player to score a goal in the NHL.Its a huge thing, Rendulic said. Its not so much a big hockey country, so maybe a lot of kids are going to look at it on TV and say I want to play hockey. Its really great. My parents have probably already called me 10 times.NOTES: Philadelphia D Michael Del Zotto sustained a cut on his neck from the skate of Avalanche LW Daniel Briere on his first shift of the game. He left to get stitches but returned to the game. ... Avalanche D Zach Redmond was a healthy scratch after playing in 22 straight games. ...
