Carrick scores winning goal to give Whalers 2-1 victory over Petes

PETERBOROUGH, Ont. - Connor Carrick scored the winning goal to give the Plymouth Whalers a 2-1 victory over the Peterborough Petes in Ontario Hockey League play Thursday.

Rickard Rakell also scored for Plymouth (3-3-3) while Peter Ceresnak scored for Peterborough (2-6-3).

Petes goalie Andrew D'Agostini was busy with 39 saves on 41 shots.

Rakell opened the scoring three minutes in, circling behind the net and burying it to give the Whalers the early lead.

Ceresnak tied it at 15:31 when he snuck in from the point and banged home a perfect touch pass from Jaroslav Tanus on a Peterborough power play.

Plymouth was unable to take advantage on four power plays in the second period, despite outshooting Peterborough 18-4.

The Petes killed off a 5-on-3 power play in the second, but Carrick fired a wrist shot home from the point at 1:00 into the third to put the Whalers ahead for good.

Matt Mahalak made 23 saves to earn the win.

Quote of the Day

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
