Catenacci scores winner as the Attack edge the Rangers

KITCHENER, Ont. - Daniel Catennaci’s power-play goal with 1:51 remaining in the third period lifted the Owen Sound Attack to a 2-1 win over the host Kitchener Rangers on Friday in Ontario Hockey League action.

Cameron Brace also scored for the Attack (32-14-4), who won for the seventh time in nine games to put a four-point gap between themself and Kitchener for third place in the Western Conference.

Tobias Rieder replied with his seventh goal in his last eight games for the Rangers (29-15-6), who had their four-game winning streak snapped.

Jordan Binnington stopped 36-of-37 shots for the win while Joel Vienneau made 33 saves in defeat.

Owen Sound went 1 for 2 with the power play while Kitchener failed to score on either of its chances with the man advantage.

Rieder opened the scoring late in the first period, blasting a pass from Josh Leivo past Binnington, but the Attack got that one back at 2:27 of the second period when Brace was left alone in front Vienneau and put a deke on the netminder.

Catennaci finally scored the eventual winner with just under two minutes to go in regulation time, taking Zach Nastasiuk’s pass at the top of the crease and wristing it by Vienneau 13 seconds after Frank Corrado was penalized for crosschecking.

Quote of the Day

For six months, it's a really good accomplishment. But as soon as April [11, the end of the regular season] comes around, no one thinks about the regular season anymore. For six months, it's a real battle to get into the playoffs in the NHL these days. There are a lot of good teams, and it takes consistency over a long time.
