D'Agostini makes 40 saves as the Petes edge the Greyhounds

PETERBOROUGH, Ont. - Andrew D'Agostini made 40 saves to lead the Peterborough Petes to a 3-2 win over the visiting Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds in Ontario Hockey League play on Saturday.

Brett Findlay, Cody Thompson and Nick Czinder scored for the Petes (18-29-7).

Nick Cousins and Ryan Sproul replied for the Greyhounds (29-20-4).

Findlay opened the scoring at 2:42 of the second period, faking a pass then burying a wrist shot.

Cousins and Sproul gave Sault St. Marie the lead with goals less than two minutes apart just before the half-way point of the period, but Thompson tied it up on a deflection at 10:18.

Jonatan Tanus made a pass off the back boards to a breaking Czinder, who fired home what proved to be the winning goal at 14:57 of the second.

Greyhounds' goaltender Justin Nichols made 31 saves in a losing cause.

Peterborough went 0 for 2 on the power play while Sault Ste. Marie scored once on three chances with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

We have no doubt how he can play. You don't, with four teams that are left, you're not getting here without good goaltending. All great goalies left, and [Bishop] is a top-tier goaltender in this league and he's shown it.

— Lightning coach Jon Cooper on goalie Ben Bishop, who shut out the Rangers in Game 5
