Kassian opened the scoring for the third game in a row at 8:19 of the first. Sauve battled an Abbotsford player along the boards for the puck and tapped it toward Kassian, who skated into the slot and rifled a shot past Heat goaltender Barry Brust.

Abbotsford evened the score at 5:10 of the second period after Lack roamed out to the faceoff dot to try to clear the puck. Heat center Adam Estoclet gained control and hit left wing Carter Bancks in the front of the net. Bancks backhanded it in before Lack could return home.

The Wolves (4-1-0-0) fell behind for the first time all year at 8:44 of the third when Heat center Ben Walter's sharp pass found Dustin Sylvester right in front of the crease. Sylvester redirected the pass past Lack for a 2-1 lead.

Walter's pass set up Sven Baertschi for another goal at 12:44 and Roman Horak tacked on a power-play goal at 14:27 for the Heat (3-0-0-1).

Lack's record dropped to 3-1-0. Brust (1-0-0) saved 25 shots in his season debut.
