ABBOTSFORD, B.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.

Fake Jerseys .com) - Colorado Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki was named the National League Player of the Month for April.MONTREAL - If its not a must-win game, the Montreal Impacts home opener is certainly one they would very much like to win. After opening the Major League Soccer season with two tight losses on the road, the Impact will play host to the Seattle Sounders before more than 25,000 at Olympic Stadium on Saturday afternoon. It will be a first home game for new coach Frank Klopas, the first time Brossard, Que., native Patrice Bernier will play at home as team captain, and the last that star striker Marco Di Vaio will sit out from the three-game suspension he got for wading into a skirmish in the playoffs last October. "Its the third game of the season, but we need to start getting some points," former Chicago Fire boss Klopas said this week. "Its good to be home. "We definitely felt that we should have picked up some points on the road, but thats the game." The Impact opened the season March 8 with a 3-2 loss in Dallas marked by a harsh penalty awarded to the home team. They followed a week later with a 1-0 defeat in Houston. There was a feeling the team played better in the second game — that the defence was sharper, that better chances were created and that Di Vaios replacement Andrew Wenger looked more comfortable up front. "We have some momentum even if were 0-2," said Bernier, who replaced the departed Davy Arnaud as captain. "Its not like we played bad and got cleaned out. "We felt we progressed last game from the first game and now were coming home. We have to defend our home and weve been very good at home the last two years. This is a game that could send us in the right direction and give us a positive boost." They are up against a Seattle side (1-1-0) with a formidable attack, but which is coming off a 2-1 loss at home to Toronto FC on former Tottenham striker Jermain Defoes pair of first-half goals. The Sounders, old foes of the Impact from their A-League and United Soccer League days, have not beaten Montreal in MLS play. The Impact won 4-1 in Montreal in 2012 and opened the 2013 campaign with a 1-0 win in Seattle. But Seattle has been among the better away sides in MLS, with a 29-28-24 road record since they entered the league in 2009.dddddddddddd Di Vaio and midfielder Andres Romero, both with three game suspensions, wont see action until a March 29 game in Philadelphia. In Di Vaios absence, winger Justin Mapp and attacking midfielder Felipe Martins have led the offence. The veteran Mapp was among their best players last season, but Felipe looks to have rebounded from a mediocre campaign and is looking more like the energetic playmaker he was as a rookie in 2012. He has yet to score, but leads the team with eight shots. "I had a few chances," he said. "But the hardest thing is to create chances and were doing that. "The only thing is we have to put it in the net, but that is going to come. Its not after one or two games you have to figure out whats going on. Its just soccer, no? One time a goal goes in and after that it comes natural." Klopas likes what hes seen of the Brazilian. "He missed the beginning of the season with injury last year and that was one reason his fitness level and sharpness werent the same," the coach said. "Hes a guy that sometimes doesnt get the points, but he helps the team in so many ways without the ball, with his work rate and stuff like that. "Ive been very pleased with him and I know he has a lot more room to grow." Bernier, coming off knee surgery, missed the season opener but got in 72 minutes in Houston. The team is still waiting for Bernier, Felipe and designated player Hernan Bernardello to all be at peak form to see what the centre of their midfield can do. Bernardello was injured shortly after signing last summer. The Impact are to play their first three home games at the Big O before moving outdoors to Saputo Stadium. Klopas coached Chicago against the Impact in Montreals first MLS game at Olympic Stadium in 2012, a 1-1 draw. "Its amazing that two years ago I was on the opposite side in the first game here, with a tremendous atmosphere," he said. "I hope its the same, only now theyre cheering for me and our team." ' ' '
