Pair of quick short-handed goals help Abbotsford shut out Marlies Add to ...

Steve McCarthy and Ben Street scored short-handed goals three seconds apart in the third period to lift the Abbotsford Heat to a 3-0 win over the Toronto Marlies in American Hockey League action Thursday.

McCarthy scored a highlight-reel goal at 4:28, skating wide on a Marlies defender before taking the puck to the net and squeezing it through the pads of Ben Scrivens.

Then right off the draw Abbotsford (5-1-2) struck again as the puck was fired down the ice and past an unsuspecting Scrivens for Street’s third goal of the year.

Sven Baertschi added a goal into an empty net.

Barry Brust made 22 saves for his 17th career AHL shutout, while Scrivens stopped 24 shots for Toronto (3-2-1).

Abbotsford’s top-ranked penalty kill has now outscored opponents 3-1 this season.
