Calgary Flames prospect Matthew Phillips scored a pair of beautiful goals on Friday as the Stockton Heat took on the Colorado Eagles in Game 3 of the AHL Pacific Division Final.
Phillips, who just turned 24, also assisted on Jakob Pelletier’s goal late in the first period. The Heat entered Friday’s action with a 2-0 lead in the best-of-five series, needing just one more victory to advance to the Western Conference Final.
Shortly after Shane Bowers gave the home side a 1-0 lead midway through the opening frame, Phillips responded with a perfect snipe past Colorado goaltender Justus Annunen to even the score at the 13:54 mark.
Jakob Pelletier picked up the lone helper on Phillips’ second goal of the 2022 Calder Cup Playoffs.
