STOCKTON, Calif. – Glenn Gawdin found the back of the net for the second-straight game and Tyler Parsons was strong once again between the pipes to help the Stockton Heat earn a point in a 2-1 shootout loss Monday against Colorado. For Gawdin, he now has two goals and four points in this recent two-games-in-three-day stretch while Parsons made 30 of 31 saves in the game for his second-straight strong performance.
