Three days after seeing their incredible win streak come to an end, the San Jose Barracuda (33-12-1-4)  also saw their road winning streak end at 10 games following a 4-2 loss to Stockton Heat (23-23-4-1), 4-2  on the road on Saturday at Stockton Arena.

Trailing 2-1 entering the third period, the Barracuda allowed two more Stockton goals that wrapped up the game. Austin Carroll took advantage of a turnover by the Barracuda less than six minutes into the period, and then Mark Jankowski sealed matters with an empty-net goal that put the Heat ahead 4-1.

San Jose got on the board first on a re-direction by John McCarthy off a shot by Tim Heed. But Stockton answered on the power play, courtesy of Matt Frattin.

Andrew Mangiapane gave the Heat the lead midway through the second period, a lead it wouldn’t relinquish.

The Barracuda went 0-for-6 on the power play in the loss, and couldn’t score enough despite outshooting Stockton 45-21. They return home to face the Gulls on Sunday.
