D'Agostini stops 43 shots as the Petes blank the Bulls

PETERBOROUGH, Ont. - Andrew D'Agostini made 43 saves to lead the Peterborough Petes to a 3-0 win over the visiting Belleville Bulls in Ontario Hockey League play on Thursday.

Steven Trojanovic, Alan Quine and Connor Boland scored for Peterborough (11-24-4), which beat East-Division leader Belleville (21-12-5) for the second time this week and third time on the season.

Trojanovic wired in a shot from the point on the power play at 7:02 of the first period for what proved to be the game winner.

Quine and Boland connected 40 seconds apart in the second period. Quine received the puck in the high slot and drilled home a wrist shot while Boland found the back of the net on a wrist shot from the point.

Charlie Graham turned aside 30 shots in defeat.

Peterborough went 1 for 5 with the man advantage while Belleville had eight power plays, including 1:35 of a two-man advantage late in the second, but couldn't score.

Quote of the Day

[He's] real confident with the puck now, getting it off his stick quick and no second-guessing. We need that. He's such a good guy in the room. He works so hard. That's the big thing. For not a big man, he just fights for every puck and when he scores, the guys appreciate that even more.
