Khokhlachev, Rychel lead the way as Windsor thumps Peterborough 9-4

PETERBOROUGH, Ont. - Alexander Khokhlachev had a hat trick and Kerby Rychel added a goal and five assists Thursday to lead the Windsor Spitfires to an emphatic 9-4 win over the Peterborough Petes in the Ontario Hockey League.

Adam Bateman, Josh Ho-Sang, Ben Johnson, Remy Giftopoulis and Brady Vail also scored for Windsor (22-23-7), while Alex Aleardi chipped in with five assists.

Jaroslav Pavelka made 30 saves to get the win.

Brett Findlay, Nick Ritchie, Nick Czinder and Greg Betzold scored for Peterborough (17-29-7).

Michael Giugovaz allowed all nine Windsor goals on 44 shots.

The teams traded goals in the first period before Giftopoulis gave the Spitfires their first lead at 3-2 on their second power-play goal of the period.

Johnson and Khokhlachev then connected for the only two goals of the second period as Windsor took a 5-2 lead after 40 minutes.

Peterborough scored two of the first three goals in the third period to get back into the game, but Windsor scored the last three for a convincing win.

The Spitfires went 4-for-6 on the power-play, while the Petes scored on one of their four chances.

Quote of the Day

Your team is going to want to recapture the feeling. What they're going to have to figure out is they're going to have to rewrite the story. Because you're going to rewrite the story doesn't mean you want a different end. It's just that you're going to have to learn that there's different challenges to get there, and if you're going to try and tap the same feeling, it ain't going to happen.
