SAN ANTONIO, TX -- The Abbotsford Heat snapped a four-game losing skid on Saturday night, picking up a 3-2 overtime victory over the San Antonio Rampage.

Ben Street played the hero for Abbotsford, scoring the overtime winner at 3:38. Markus Granlund and Brady Lamb collected the assists on Street's team-leading 17th goal of the year.

Chad Billins and Josh Jooris also scored for the Heat while the Rampage received goals from Vince Trocheck and Garrett Wilson.

Flames 2009 sixth round pick Joni Ortio made 31 saves and recorded a 1.89 GAA and a .939 save percentage in the win. The Finn has been exceptional in his first full season in North America, going 16-4-2.

It was a milestone night for Heat head coach Troy G. Ward as he notched his 100th AHL victory.

The Heat are back in action next Wednesday, facing off against the Rockford IceHogs.
