Carrick scores in OT as Whalers beat Storm

PLYMOUTH, Mich. - Connor Carrick scored 2:29 into overtime as the Plymouth Whalers came from behind to beat the visiting Guelph Storm 3-2 on Saturday in Ontario Hockey League action.

Mitchell Heard scored his first goal for the Whalers (19-12-8) since being reassigned by the Colorado Avalanche this past week and Garrett Meurs had the other.

Justin Auger and Patrick Watling gave the Storm (21-12-5) a 2-0 lead early in the first period before Plymouth found its offence.

Alex Nedeljkovic made 25 saves for the win as Keegan Wilson stopped 26 shots in defeat.

Plymouth went 1 for 2 on the power play while Guelph failed to score on three chances with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

That's a really tough thing to play through; when you finally are thrown out there, the game is fast, intense, every single play matters, you've got to find a way to play through that and make smart plays. So it's a huge testament to [Vermette] and some other individuals in our locker room that are putting their own ego, their own wants and needs aside, and are ready for those opportunities when they do come.
