PLYMOUTH, Mich. - Mikkel Boedker scored twice, including the game-winner, as the Kitchener Rangers edged the Plymouth Whalers 2-1 in Saturday evening Ontario Hockey League action.
All the game's scoring came in a frantic final period. Boedker, an 18-year old Danish import, opened the scoring early in the third while both teams were short a man and later banged in a loose puck in front of Whalers goalie Jeremy Smith at 8:16.
Chris Terry scored Plymouth's lone goal, his team-best 37th, wristing in a rebound on a power play 5:12 into the third.
Kitchener (43-9-1-2), the top-ranked team in the Canadian Hockey League, got a 23-save performance from Josh Unice, including two breakaway pad saves on Whalers forward Vern Cooper.
Smith finished with 36 saves for Plymouth (31-22-2-2), who remain in fifth slot in the OHL's Western Conference standings.
