Mistele scores three times in come-from-behind win over the Storm

PLYMOUTH, Mich. - Matthew Mistele scored three times as the Plymouth Whalers came from behind to defeat the visiting Guelph Storm 7-4 on Saturday in Ontario Hockey League play.

Vincent Trocheck tacked on a single goal to round out Plymouth's offence.

Robby Fabbri, Tyler Bertuzzi, Hunter Garlent and Justin Auger scored for the Storm (31-19-5), who have dropped back-to-back contests.

Alex Nedeljkovic earned the victory for Plymouth after making 21 saves in 44 minutes of relief. Nedeljkovic replaced starter Matt Mahalak, who allowed three goals on 11 shots through the opening 15 minutes of the game. Garret Sparks took the loss after giving up five goals on 36 shots in two periods of play. Sparks was replaced to start the third period by Michael Nishi, who stopped 8-of-9 shots.

Plymouth went 2 for 4 on the power play while Guelph scored twice on eight chances 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.
