A shorter gamethread today since we covered most of the ground in the preview yesterday. The Heat beat the Wolves 3-2 last night in a game that was very back-and-forth, although I'd say the Heat survived gave up ,pre own zone time and chances against overall. That said, Abbotsford blocked a lot of shots, the Wolves missed or were stuffed on a lot of pucks in the scoring area and when they did break through, Danny Taylor was there more often than not.

We're now in the thick of the holiday season and there's no NHL hockey, but there's still lots to talk about. The league made a new CBA offer this week, the World Juniors and Spengler Cup are on, and the Toronto Maple Leafs continue to butcher the handling of their top young players.

One of the marquee match-ups of the World Juniors takes place on Sunday night in Ufa, Russia – and the wee hours of Sunday morning in North America – as Team Canada tangles with Team USA!

Team Canada (2-0-0) is coming off a resounding defeat of Germany and a surprising come-from-behind win over Slovakia. Canada's systems were a bit fast and loose against Germany (the only goals Germany have scored in the tournament were against Canada) and the discipline problems that emerged during the pre-competition games exploded against Slovakia. Two Canadian forwards were ejected from the game and the club had to battle back from behind.

Against Slovakia.

Abbotsford gets a chance to end a rough month on a high note with a pair of games starting tonight against the Chicago Wolves. The Heat have only won 2 of their last 10 contests and have fallen to 4th in the Western Conference as a result (although they are now just 3 points out of 11th thanks to a high level of parity in the AHL this year).
