The sparks always fly when the IceHogs play against the Abbotsford Heat and Saturday night’s game was no exception. The tension between the teams came to a boil several times, resulting in 2 fights and a handful of scrums. The game itself appeared to be heading for overtime when Ben Walter scored a goal late in the 3rd period, securing the 2-1 win for the Heat.
Saturday night was also Teddy Bear Toss Night and Rockford Fans did not disappoint. A grand total of 1,221 stuffed animals were tossed by fans to the ice after Brett McLean scored the first goal for the IceHogs at 14:26 in the first frame.
