Dansk makes 47 saves to lead Erie Otters over Peterborough Petes 5-1

PETERBOROUGH, Ont. - Oscar Dansk made 47 saves to lead the Erie Otters to a 5-1 road win over the Peterborough Petes in Ontario Hockey League action Thursday night.

Stephen Harper scored twice to lead Erie, while Jake Evans, Nick Betz and Travis Wood each scored for the Otters (1-2-0).

Trevor Murphy scored the only goal for Peterborough (1-2-0), which outshot Erie 48-30 but couldn't solve Dansk.

Harper's first came on the power play and the second at even strength four minutes apart in the middle of the first period.

Evans connected 35 seconds after Harper's second goal to give Erie a 3-0 lead after 20 minutes.

The Otters got the only goal of the second period when Betz buried one with 15 seconds to go in the frame.

Murphy snuck in from the point to tap home a back door pass for Peterborough at the 2:45 mark of the third.

Wood rounded out the scoring, banging a big rebound into the open net in the final minute of the game.

Peterborough went 0-for-8 on the power play, including three two-man advantages.

Quote of the Day

After being through it and seeing the other [outdoor] games on TV, just the atmosphere is spectacular. To stand here -- and we are essentially almost on the blue line -- and look up [into the stands] and knowing it is going to be packed and playing our biggest rival in this setting is going to be pretty special.
