The score is no misprint.

"We pressed the first five minutes of the game and then backed off and played half-court offense the rest of the way," Ussery said.

TUCSON, Ariz. - Justin Kirkland found the back of the net for the second consecutive game but the Stockton Heat (19-4-2-1) fell by a 2-1 final score Tuesday against the Tucson Roadrunners (11-9-2-0) at the Tucson Convention Center.

Both of the Roadrunners’ goals came on the power play, snapping Stockton’s streak of perfection while down a skater at 35. 

Victor Soderstrom netted the first score of the contest, finding the back of the net on the home team’s first shot to take a 1-0 lead just 1:29 into game action. Stockton battled back in the second, Kirkland knotting the game at the 4:37 mark of the second stanza, the forward collecting a loose puck in the slot and firing a backhand top shelf for the tie. The decisive score came 6:44 into the final frame, Jan Jenik lighting the lamp on the man-advantage.

Netminder Dustin Wolf made 22 saves on 24 shots faced but was outdueled by Tucson’s Ivan Prosvetov, who turned away 30 of 31 pucks on the night.
