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

When we started our journey we made a commitment to our fans to be relevant and to see the Chicago Blackhawks become the best professional hockey organization. There are not two finer symbols of that than Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane. The commitment we have made to these incredible young men is equal to the commitment they have made to our team, our fans, our entire organization and the city of Chicago.
