ABBOTSFORD, B.C. -- Gleason Fournier scored the shootout winner as the Grand Rapids Griffins defeated the Abbotsford Heat 4-3 Friday in American Hockey League action. Fournier was the eighth Griffins shooter and had a chance to win the game after Petr Mrazek came out to stop Abbotsfords Chad Billins. Fournier beat Olivier Roy stick side to clinch the win for the visitors. Teeumu Pulkkinen scored twice, giving him a team-leading 23 goals and four in two games. Calle Jarnkrok had a goal and two assists. Andrej Nestrasil had two assists. Mrazek stopped 31 shots in the win. Max Reinhart had two goals for Abbotsford (33-17-6), who have now lost three straight. Sven Baertschi had a goal and an assist, while Roy made 34 saves in the losing effort. Baertschi opened the scoring on the power play when Ben Streets wrist shot from the point was redirected between Mrazeks legs at 6:11. Pulkkinen tied the game at 16:44. After taking a pass at the blue-line, he stepped into a slap shot from the top of the face-off circle to beat Roy far side for his team-leading 22nd of the year. The 22-year-old Finn gave the Griffins the lead at 3:49. Nick Jensens shot from the top of the circle was deflected by Pulkkinen, cruising through the slot. That was Jensens first professional point. Reinhart tied the game at 16:09, taking a pass from Brett Olson and wiring a wrist shot far side on Mrazek. Jarnkroks power-play goal gave the Griffins the lead heading into the second intermission. Nestrasil found Jarnkrok in the low slot and he beat Roy bar down with just 20 seconds to play. Grand Rapids thought they had doubled the lead eight minutes into the third, but the deflection in front was a high stick and was immediately waved off by referee Trevor Hanson. Reinhart tied the game with just under four minutes to go, redirecting a pass from Baertschi around Mrazeks left pad. Grand Rapids had the best scoring chance in overtime, but Ryan Sproul fired it off the crossbar midway through the extra frame and with 35 seconds to go, Cory Emmerton shot a one-timer from the slot right into Roys crest. Erik McCoy Youth Jersey . Power had a two-lap average of 218.896 mph in qualifying Friday at the high-banked, high-speed 1 1/2-mile track for his 34th career pole. Bobby Hebert Youth Jersey . Former San Francisco Giants slugger Barry Bonds made his longshot request of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco. A three-judge panel of the 9th Circuit upheld Bonds conviction in September. http://www.saintsrookiestore.com/Saints ... es-Jersey/. -- One shot came out of bottom of a cactus, the other from the base of a desert bush with rocks scattered around it. Wil Lutz Youth Jersey . He managed to save par, and went on to put together his best opening round of the year. Calcavecchia and Wes Short Jr. Morten Andersen Youth Jersey . Arsenal had already scored its goals in the third round fixture when the fierce rivalry turned ugly in the final ten minutes as Walcott was being carried off on a stretcher.Out since November 2nd with a severed tendon in his left ankle, David Bolland was at practice on Wednesday, though he was skating as an extra and not featured on any of the four forward lines. While he is making progress, Bolland admitted things are not moving as quickly as he would like. "Things are going, things are progressing," said Bolland. "Not as quickly as I wish they were, but things are progressing." Coach Randy Carlyle suggested last Thursday that there was a 50-50 chance Bolland could return prior to the Olympic break, but with just two games remaining for the Leafs before the two week hiatus, nothing is set in stone. "Well see," Bolland said when asked if a return before the break was a possibility. "Things are progressing, so well see how they go." At this point, Bollands biggest limitations occur in transition when he is required to change directions abruptly. "Its crossing over, getting on that ankle, putting weight on it and stressing that tendon," Bolland explained. "Thats the biggest thing, the transition in the game when youre going down on a three on two and the puck gets poked off your stick and you have to go back the other way, that quick transition of turning on a dime and getting back. Its that tendon that you have to use to turn and progress off that. Its getting stronger, its getting there but its just not elevating like I want it to." Now over three full months since the injury occurred, Bolland is still resigned to the fact that he will experience pain in the ankle, likely forr several more months to come.dddddddddddd "You feel pain, you feel stress, and I did cut a tendon so it went right through the muscle, right through the tendon, right through everything, almost down to the bone," he said. "Im going to feel pain; its going to be like that for the rest of this year and maybe some of the summer." Whether he returns or not in the next two games, Bolland will not be taking the Olympic break off. Instead, he intends to return to London to skate with the Knights, his former junior club and continue wearing the new skate boot that he had custom designed to support his injury. "Ill have to use that new skate for a while, probably for the rest of my career," said Bolland. "Ive got a big bulge on the side of my ankle that sticks out, bigger than my other ankle so its going to be with me for the rest of my life. Ill probably use that skate until Im done." An unrestricted free agent this summer, the injury has prevented Bolland from raising his stock with a solid year, playing in just 15 games to this point. More concerned with getting back into the line up than worrying about a new contract, he indicated that his past resume should speak for itself. "I dont know if Im missing anything, I think in the past few years Ive won two Stanley Cups," said Bolland. "Ive been to the finals and know what its like to get there; Ive been through those battles so I dont think this should hinder any kind of contract. I think they know what I do and what kind of heart I have out there." ' ' '
