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

You get the right the whistles at the right times, you can leave him out there. He's a beast when it comes to being on the ice. I thought [Saturday] he was a big man. That first period, he did that lateral cut and it was like three bowling pins bounced off him. There's not too many guys that can do that.
