OKLAHOMA CITY - Ilya Bryzgalov stopped 25 shots as the Oklahoma City Barons snapped the Abbotsford Heat's nine-game win streak on Saturday with a 4-1 victory in American Hockey League play.
Bryzgalov, who was starting his second game while on a conditioning loan from the Edmonton Oilers, had a bounce-back performance after giving up five goals on 24 shots in a 5-4 loss to Abbotsford on Friday.
C.J. Stretch scored twice for the Barons (7-7-2) while Linus Omark and Ben Eager added a goal apiece.
Paul Byron supplied the offence for the Heat (13-5-1), who sit atop the AHL standings, while Joey MacDonald made 31 saves in defeat.
After a scoreless first period, Stretch put Oklahoma City on the board 12:37 into the second and then added his second of the game in the final minute of the period.
Byron put Abbotsford on the board at 9:59 of the third period, but Omark restored a two-goal lead for the Barons while on the power play moments later.
Eager added an empty-net goal at 18:27.
Oklahoma City went 1 for 3 on the power play while the Heat failed to score on four chances with the man advantage.
