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.

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

I mean, hockey had to change the rules because of Marty, and that's impressive. I got two Stanley Cup rings because of the guy. Look at the banners of [Scott Niedermayer, Scott Stevens and Ken Daneyko] and Marty is right up there when you think about the New Jersey Devils; he was part of the core group and he'll go down as one of the greatest goalies ever.
