Brock McGinn scores twice as Guelph Storm defeat Peterborough Petes 5-3

PETERBOROUGH, Ont. - Brock McGinn scored twice Thursday to lead the Guelph Storm to a 5-3 win over the Peterborough Petes in the Ontario Hockey League.

Justin Auger, Andrey Pedan and Zack Mitchell had the other goals for Guelph (24-14-5), which took an early lead and never looked back.

Stephen Nosad, Steven Trojanovic and Derek Mathers replied for Peterborough (12-25-7).

Garret Sparks made 24 saves to get the win, while Andrew D'Agostini stopped 32 shots at the other end.

Auger opened the scoring at 4:14 of the first period before McGinn connected 1:45 later. Pedan then stretched the lead to 3-0 with a short-handed goal at 11:40.

Nosad replied with a short-handed goal of his own for the Petes at 6:18 of the second, but Mitchell scored on the power play at 10:26 and McGinn made it 5-1 just 1:23 later.

Trojanovic blasted home a point shot on the power play at 11:45 of the third for Peterborough and Mathers added a goal on another slapshot from just inside the blue-line with four seconds to play.

Guelph scored once on three-power play chances, while Peterborough was 1-for-2 with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

I always feel the pressure to produce offensively. It's disappointing and frustrating when you can't help out your team the way you're supposed to.
