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

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
