KITCHENER, Ont. - Ryan Murphy’s power-play goal at 4:28 into overtime gave the Kitchener Rangers a 3-2 win over the Owen Sound Attack on Sunday in Ontario Hockey League action.
It's the Rangers (10-5-1-1) six win in a row at home this season.
Brace was awarded the penalty shot when he was hauled down by Murphy while the Rangers were enjoying a 5-on-3 power play.
The Rangers were 1-for-11 on the power play, while the Attack were blanked on two opportunities with the man advantage.
Puempel opened the scoring at 7:46 of the second period when he stole the puck in the corner and skated into the slot untouched before sending a wrist shot between Binnington’s pads.
Puempel was at it again less than nine minutes later when he redirected Radek Faksa’s cross-crease pass over Binnington’s right pad.
Owen Sound started the comeback at 12:30 of the third period when Brace did everything right on a penalty shot, deking Gibson to cut the lead in half.
Cook then tied the game at 17:35, converting a Chris Bigras pass on a 2-on-1.
That set up Murphy’s heroics, as he one-timed Tobias Rieder’s pass through Binnington's legs with Gilbert Gabor in the penalty box for interference after nailing Murphy in open ice.
