Puempel scores twice as the Rangers beat the Generals 2-1

OSHAWA, Ont. - Matt Puempel scored both goals for his club as the Kitchener Rangers edged the host Oshawa Generals 2-1 on Sunday in Ontario Hockey League play.

Evan McEneny, Matia Marcantuoni and Ryan Murphy each had an assist for the Rangers (13-5-2), who have won five games in a row.

Michael Dal Colle opened the scoring on a power play for the Generals (11-9-2) 27 seconds into the second period, but Puempel tied the game with a high wrist shot that handcuffed goaltender Daniel Altshuller at 6:39.

Puempel scored the winner after a couple of cracks at a rebound with 6:33 left in the second.

John Gibson picked up his 11th win of the year by making 25 saves while Altshuller turned away 17 shots in a losing cause.

Kitchener went 0-for-3 on the power play while Oshawa went 1-for-5.

Quote of the Day

Obviously there's a lot of expectations around me but it's something I try not to focus on. I'm just trying to go out there, be myself on the ice every day, try to get better, be myself around the guys in the locker room. I think that's what's made me successful and the person that I am.
