Petes drop shootout decision to Rangers

The Peterborough Petes earned 5 of a possible 6 points closing out the week with a 4-3 shootout loss in Kitchener on Friday night.

 

The Rangers opened the scoring with a pair of first period goals by Darby Llewellyn at 10:35 and Ben Thomson at 15:35 however the Petes closed the gap to one before the end of the period on Jonatan Tanus’s first of two on the night when he banged in a Derek Mathers rebound on the powerplay at 17:41.

 

Tanus netted his second of the game capping off a 2 on 1 passing play from Brett Findlay 1:27 into the 2nd and the teams went to the dressing room tied at 2 after 40 minutes of play.

 

The Petes took their first lead of the game 10:25 into the third period on a shorthanded goal by Stephen Pierog when he banked a shot off the far post completing a Stephen Nosad 2 on 1 pass.  The Rangers tied the game with just 3:21 remaining and on a 5 on 3 powerplay with a goal by Nick Czinder to force overtime.

 

Overtime would solve nothing and for the second time in four days the Petes would head to a shootout where Keli Grant would score the winning goal for the Rangers making the final 4-3.

 

The Petes and Rangers will go right back at it on Thursday night as they close out a home and home series at the Memorial Centre.  Puck Drop is 7:05pm.
