GUELPH, Ont. - Scott Kosmachuk scored a tiebreaking goal with under two minutes left to play as the Guelph Storm edged the Rangers 3-2 on Tuesday to cut Kitchener's lead in the best-of-seven OHL opening-round series to 2-1.
The Rangers took a 2-0 lead after a first-period goal by Ben Thomson and Radek Faksa's goal at 8:56 of the third period.
But the Storm rallied in the third with two straight goals by Andrey Pedan before Kosmachuk's go-ahead marker at 18:11.
When we started our journey we made a commitment to our fans to be relevant and to see the Chicago Blackhawks become the best professional hockey organization. There are not two finer symbols of that than Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane. The commitment we have made to these incredible young men is equal to the commitment they have made to our team, our fans, our entire organization and the city of Chicago.
