Armstrong sets up four goals as the Petes keep playoff hopes alive

PETERBOROUGH, Ont. - Seven different players scored for Peterborough and Nelson Armstrong had four assists as the Petes downed the visiting Ottawa 67's 7-2 on Sunday in Ontario Hockey League play.

Clark Seymour, Steven Trojanovic, Peter Ceresnak, Nick Ritchie, Stephen Pierog, Michael Clarke and Brett Findlay all scored for the Petes (24-34-7), who have won back-to-back games, while Andrew D'Agostini made 23 saves for the win.

Josep Blandisi and Michal Cajkovsky scored for the 67's (16-43-5), who have just one win in their last 10 contests, and Jacob Blair stopped 40-of-47 shots in defeat.

Peterborough went 1 for 2 on the power play while Ottawa failed to score on its only chance with the man advantage.

With the win, the Petes are now only two points behind the Mississauga Steelheads for the eighth and final playoff position in the Eastern Conference.

Quote of the Day

It's really exciting. I'm pretty sure that when I play my first game I'm going to be emotional. To be back on the ice playing a game, being in game situations, with all the routines and rituals I do before games and during the game, I feel like I'm going to be emotional. I'm going to be really happy.
