Meurs scores twice as the Whalerws beat the Rangers 2-1 in OT

PLYMOUTH, Mich. - Garrett Meurs scored twice, including the winner 37 seconds into overtime, as the Plymouth Whalers edged the visiting Kitchener Rangers 2-1 on Saturday in Ontario Hockey League action.

Stefan Noesen, Ryan Hartman and Rickard Rakell each picked up an assist for the Whalers (7-3-3), who have won five of their last six contests and moved into first place in the West Division.

Ben Thomson scored the lone goal for the Rangers (7-4-2), who had their four-game winning streak snapped.

Matt Mahalak made 27 saves for the win as Franky Palazzese turned away 30 shots in a losing cause.

Plymouth went 1-for-2 on the power play while Kitchener failed to score on either of its opportunities with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
