BURNABY - After shutting out their opposition on Friday night, the Abbotsford Pilots (9-17-0-0) had the result reversed on Sunday getting blanked by the Grandview Steelers (17-7-2-2) by a score of 2-0. The Pilots were unable to capitalize on the power play, including an instance in the third period which saw Abbotsford produce one shot during a five minute major. Steelers goaltender Cale Dolan stopped 15 shots on the way to his league-leading 7th shutout of the season, while Brock Machholz of the Pilots faced 21 shots in his first appearance since November 15th.
