SUDBURY, Ont. - Joshua Leivo scored at 4:36 of overtime and added two assists in regulation as the visiting Kitchener Rangers edged his former team the Sudbury Wolves 5-4 on Sunday in Ontario Hockey League action.
Leivo had spent the past three seasons playing for Sudbury before Kitchener acquired him in a trade on Jan. 8th, and the 19-year-old forward has two goals and eight points in seven games with his new club.
Joel Vienneau made 25 saves for the win as Franky Palazzese turned aside 42 shots in a losing cause.
Vienneau, who was also picked up in the Jan. 8th deal that saw Palazzese go back the other way, is 3-0-1 in four starts with the Rangers. Palazzese is 3-1-1 in five starts with his new club.
Kitchener went 1 for 6 on the power play while Sudbury went 1 for 4.
Schoenmakers opened the scoring for the Rangers 7:27 into the first period when he tipped a Ryan Murphy point shot past Palazzese.
Baptiste responded early in the second period with a wrist shot from the left face-off circle and Kantor made it 2-1 for the Wolves at 4:33.
Ming made it 2-2 with a short-handed goal at 14:40, but Campagna regained the lead for Sudbury on a penalty shot as he put the puck over Vienneau's glove at 16:32.
Puempel replied for Kitchener only 37 seconds into the third period, but Sudbury regained the lead one more time when Baptiste scored on the power play at 18:16
It looked as if the Wolves would skate away with two points, however Rieder scored with 43 seconds left in regulation to force extra time.
