Sam Bennett stars in overtime as Kingston Frontenacs down Peterborough Petes 4-3

PETERBOROUGH, Ont. - Sam Bennett buried a wrist shot from the face-off circle at 2:59 of overtime to give the Kingston Frontenacs a 4-3 win over the Peterborough Petes in Ontario Hockey League play Thursday.

Darcy Greenaway had two goals and an assist and Spencer Watson three assists to lead the Frontenacs. Cody Alcock also scored for Kingston (4-3).

Zach Lorentz, Trevor Murphy and Steven Trojanovic each scored for Peterborough (2-5-1).

The Frontenacs had to kill off a 5-on-3 in the final two minutes of regulation and into overtime when a pair of their defenders took delay of game penalties for flipping the puck over the boards.

Lorentz tipped home a point shot to give Peterborough the lead after the first period. Kingston outscored the Petes 3-0 in the second period to hold a two-goal advantage through 40 minutes.

Murphy and Trojanovic, both defencemen, connected about five minutes apart in the first half of the third period and neither team could score again until the extra frame.

Kingston went 1-for-6 on the power play and Peterborough was scoreless in six man advantages. The winning shot edged the Frontenacs ahead 30-29 in total shots for the game.

Quote of the Day

It was a different game in the past, that's for sure. It's not exactly what I was expecting but I think the experience paid off for a lot of our guys that realized what it takes in a Game 7. Realistically the effort we put forward, we might not even had to put 60 [minutes], but we just couldn't get a couple bounces to go our way and we just kept pushing.
