PLYMOUTH, Mich.-Chris Terry and Matt Caria each produced three-point games to lead the resurgent Plymouth Whalers past the Kitchener Rangers 5-2 Saturday night in Ontario Hockey League action.
Caria, acquired this past week from Sault Ste. Marie, had two goals and an assist, while Terry, Plymouth's captain, notched a goal and assisted on both of Caria's markers.
Plymouth is now 14-14-3-0 and 8-3-1-0 since Mike Vellucci returned to the bench Nov. 10 and have climbed into fourth place in the OHL's West Division.
Christian Steingraber and Patrick Lee scored the other goals for the Whalers. Beau Schmitz chipped in two assists and goaltender Matt Hackett stopped 28 shots.
Julian Cimadamore and Scott Timmins replied for the Rangers (13-15-1-1). Josh Unice took the loss in goal with a 26-save outing.
Kitchener was called for just one penalty all game, compared to the five Plymouth was whistled for.
The Rangers remain in last place in the Midwest Division.
