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.
I had one really not-good game. I came back to the hotel and he [his father] was on Skype. My mother called first and said, 'Your father wants to talk to you.' So he moved my mother away, and he yelled at me for like 30 seconds. I understood him, and then he said, 'I'm done.' And he was gone. The next game I got my first shutout.
