GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- Riley Sheahan scored twice, including a power-play goal, to lead the Grand Rapids Griffins past the Abbotsford Heat 5-1 on Friday in American Hockey League play.

Francis Pare, Gustav Nyquist and Joakim Andersson all had a goal and an assist for Grand Rapids (15-9-2), while Petr Mrazek made 29 saves for the win.

Defenceman Nick Tuzzolino had his first goal of the season for Abbotsford (15-7-6). Barry Brust started in net for the Heat, making 14 saves on 16 shots over two periods. Danny Taylor stopped 8-of-10 shots in relief.

The Griffins went 2 for 3 on the power play and Abbotsford was 0 for 2 with the man advantage.

There was a flurry of scoring in the final few minutes of play, as Sheahan scored on the power play with 3:58 left in the third.

Tuzzolino replied 44 seconds later and then Nyquist had an empty-net goal with just over a minute left on the clock.
