The victory moves Kitchener into second round action while Guelph is eliminated from the post-season after droppping the Western Conference first-round matchup 4-1.

Joshua Leivo scored once and set up two more for the Rangers, who outscored Guelph 15-8 in the series, while Radek Faksa and Max Iafrate each added a goal.

John Gibson made 35 saves for the win as Garret Sparks turned away 38-of-41 shots in defeat.

Quote of the Day

Obviously there's a lot of expectations around me but it's something I try not to focus on. I'm just trying to go out there, be myself on the ice every day, try to get better, be myself around the guys in the locker room. I think that's what's made me successful and the person that I am.
