Storm beat Rangers 3-2 to cut Kitchener's lead in OHL series to 2-1

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.

Garrett Sparks made 33 saves for Guelph, while John Gibson stopped 40 shots at the other end.

Game 4 is Thursday in Guelph.

Quote of the Day

He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.

— U.S. National Junior Team coach Ron Wilson on Auston Matthews, the projected No. 1 pick of the 2016 NHL Draft
