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

There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
