Mistele scores twice as the Whalers double up the Battalion

PLYMOUTH, Mich. - Matthew Mistele scored two goals as the Plymouth Whalers doubled up the visiting Brampton Battalion 4-2 on Friday in Ontario Hockey League play.

Tom Wilson and Ryan Hartman each had a goal and an assist for the Whalers (20-13-8) while Vincent Trocheck chipped in with two assists in his Plymouth debut.

Brandon Robinson and Brenden Milled scored for the Battalion (19-18-7), who are winless in their last four outings.

Matt Mahalak made 32 saves for the win as Matej Machovsky stopped 40-of-44 shots in a losing cause.

Plymouth went 1 for 5 on the power play while Brampton failed to score on three chances with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

For our team, as a group, we've never been this far before, and so it's just more lessons learned, and sometimes you have to go to the school of hard knocks to find out what works and what doesn't. We've got a young group. They've played some unreal hockey here to get us this far, and we showed if we're not going to play the proper way, a really, really good hockey team is going to beat you, and that's what they did. It's a lesson learned.
